This VW Weekender presents a unique opportunity, and you better believe this has occupied my attention for a few days now. The current owners, residents of California, are on their way to Argentina with their journey scheduled to conclude in February. What we have here is an excellent chance at the fly-and-drive of your life. The van itself is a solid platform. A 2wd with a 2.2 liter water cooled engine, it was fully rebuilt prior to their departure from the US. Fitted with a 100 watt solar panel, Engle refrigerator, auxiliary battery system, and a full compliment of camping and cooking equipment, this is a proven vehicle ready for the trip north.
