Description for Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon 1978

1978 VW Bus Camper (Pop-Top). This van runs and drives with a 2017 safety sticker. Consider this a project vehicle and should be gone through before taken on any long trips. This camper was my retirement project, but I have run out of time and energy. I have most receipts and more pictures.
Mechanically -- It fires right up. Shifts fine through all gears. GEX ‘Premium' Rebuilt Engine (1600cc dual port, long block) installed in 2009. Engine fitted with new heads, hydraulic lifters, down draft carburetor, ¾ quarter cam, new sleeves, lager pistons, new Bosch alternator, and a heavy-duty oil pump. Brakes OK with new master cylinder and brake shoes. Emergency brake system is not working. 5 new tires mounted on powder-coated rims. Glass is good including a new back window from VW Germany. Speedometer rebuilt.
Body -- The pictures speak for themselves. Please message me if you would like to see anything I may have missed. The pop-top tent is fair with a couple of holes, but the upper bed is in good shape.
Interior – I recovered the front seats, rear bench, and rear cushion. Operating condition of appliances is unknown. Propane system rebuilt.
Thanks for looking and please let me know any questions you may have or any pictures you would like to see.
