Conversion from 2WD to a 4WD Cost and Justification

VW Vanagon 1980-91, air-cooled, water-cooled, 2WD and 4WD are all 95% The bodies of ’86-91 2WD and 4WD are 99% the same. of the differences between the 2WD and 4WD are in the various (suspension, cooling, fuel, and are bolt-on. There is actually little welding to do. So, it is feasible to any 2WD Vanagon to 4WD Syncro EXACTLY the way the did.

The cost to take a crash-free 2WD Vanagon and convert it to 4WD is between $25,000 and $50,000. It all on the condition of the vehicle, which how many of the systems have to be rebuilt (as opposed to simply It also depends largely on the and engine displacement chosen, as as what type of differentials are open, limited slip, or locking. Here are a couple of to read on this topic:

So, the decision whether or not to start a particular Vanagon is entirely on its condition, and whether or not there is any attachment.

In order for GoWesty to one way or the other with regard to it makes sense based on the vehicle would have to be The first step we always when any vehicle comes to for the first time for any major is to assess the entire vehicle and our opinion as to whether or not it is a good for a conversion. That is our policy and is, of in the best interests of all concerned. regard to emotional attachment. that is an entirely different We have resurrected Vanagons the dead for people who knew well that it would be to simply replace their vehicle. In matters of the heart, I am no

Here are the basic steps to a 2WD Vanagon to a 4WD Syncro:

1. Replace with Syncro type

2. engine and transaxle assembly 2 to accommodate fuel tank and shaft

3. Eliminate 2WD fuel up front, install Syncro tank above transaxle in fuel filler door to (and delete front

4. Remove 2WD front suspension and cut out rack mounting and lower mountings

Six steps, right? Not quite. It one very talented GoWesty with access to every imaginable about 60 hours to a 2WD undercarriage clean, convert to and install all fresh and rebuilt As of April 2010, we have 12 such conversions.

There are three reasons to a 2WD Vanagon to 4WD (rather than buying a 4WD model):

1. 2WDs are in better condition. That is, 4WD generally see rougher conditions and severe weather, so they to be rustier and more hammered

2. To create a Syncro model is rare (pop-top models) or did not exist at all (for example, a Multivan Weekender that was offered in 4WD).

3. If you’re with a mechanically worn-out a full restoration typically about 200 hours. The mechanical of that restoration usually about 40 hours. so what’s 20?

If you want a hard-top Syncro, it is less expensive to simply a 4WD model. That is, the hard-top are much more common and In fact, in order to convert any 2WD to you need a hard-top donor So, one way or another, you will have to buy

But if you want a pop-top Syncro, it can be less expensive to buy a nice, 2WD pop-top and a hammered, worn out hard top as a donor for your
