But that's only the starting price and the reserve not met. I don't know, how high the reserve is.

For the LT, it has around 155,000 miles on the odometer, has a 6 Zylinder Diesel engine with 109 metric hp or 107 sae hp. The diesel-gauge shows only sometimes, how much diesel is in the tank.
Also, the driver-seat needs some work. Technical it should be o.k., 7 month ago it passed the dual-annual-check without problems.
The worst think is the rust at the windshield and the seems between the panels of the sidewalls. All the Vanagons and LT's of that time-period where welded, than the seems sealed from the outside and later painted. And so, no paint inside the welded seams, bare metal, and the rust comes from the inside.

And this is corrosion, you never will be able to stop.
The only was is to cut the seams out and weld new seams in ;-) as someone wrote in a vanagon-forum.

Yeah... well... couple all that with importing here, I think I'm gonna have to leave ebay as the last option. I still have a couple of avenues to check out first.
