It is a nice van, but is the price rectified in any way? I realize neither good condition vanagons nor Porsche engines are cheap, but this seems ridiculous. It is not a Sema-Quality completely build car, it is just a nice van with a better engine in what seems like perfect condition. Although the probably stock interior looks really dated to me, but the purists will probably like it. So have these things really gone up this much in value or is the seller trying to rip someone of?
The seller is probably selling it for the amount he wants to sell it for, simple as that.
