If you have run out of easy mods for the Vanagon and are looking for something more challenging, check out this cable shifter mod. It makes shifting much smoother on the Vanagon but will require some real work. As you can see, there is no kit to cover the shifter so you would probably have to custom make one yourself. Click through for a couple of videos of this thing in action.



This 1987 Vanagon is not actually a Westy (I think). It is apparently a conversion, and I have to admit to being a little confused about its history. It appears to be a stock Vanagon that was going to be converted. They painted the van and installed the Westy interior. When they cut the hole for the pop top, they muffed it, and ended up created a rag top Vanagon with a Westy interior and luggage rack. So this hacked Westy is unique. Click through for more.



How would you like to have wood trim in your Vanagon? This guy has added wood to the dash, doors, and gear shift and it looks great. He has also re-upholstered his seats, added carpet and a South African steering wheel to complete his custom interior. Looks great!


This is definitely a first. A pink double cab Doka in all its glory.


This otherwise normal looking Doka truck has a cut out from the cab to the bed. I’ve never seen one of these before, but it looks like it may be used with a camper top. What do you think? Have you seen this before?


Some people just take hacking the Vanagon to the extreme. Check out this monster Syncro expedition that is currently up for sale at the Samba. It’s a gorgeous load of Vanagon insanity. It comes with a high top and so many custom options it’s impossible to list them all. How much will it set you back? Oh, only $48,000. Click through to see the interior, plus the full list of features.



This custom VW T3 truck looks like it has a barn on its back. I almost named it the barn truck, but it is apparently used for a fruit and vegetable business. I love the custom back with the roll up doors.

This Syncro Westy is packed with accessories. Is there an accessory she does not have? Look at the side mounted ladder and front bumper bull bar with driving lights. How about the roof mounted driving lights or the extra side view mirror? The front grill has an eyelid and the windshield has a sun visor. And, oh yeah, it has aftermarket wheels.



This is an interesting camper that was recently for sale. It’s a 1983 Transporter Multimobil unlike anything we’ve seen in the states. Surprisingly, it doesn’t have all that much room inside. It looks to be in decent shape although it could use a wheel upgrade. Someone did take the time to install Recaro seats in it. Click through for the interior pics.


This VW T3 Syncro expedition vehicle comes from Spain and has been completely restored. It was recently for sale and has a long list of features including, a trivalent fridge, kitchen, sink, cabinets, led lights, outdoor shower, 220v installation, rotating front seats, table in front and behind, skylight, thermal windows with curtains and mosquito nets, insulators, side door with mosquito net, static heating, fiamma awning, water tank and gray water tank. With the table in the front, it opens up a very roomy interior. Check it out.
