Description for Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon 1971

vin# 2312250079

Before I begin I would encourage all serious buyers to contact me directly at: 517-425-0129 with any further questions. Although this is a 7 day auction I reserve the right to end early.

Recently purchased from the second owner of approx. 37 years. Owner was approx. 89 years old. Her and her husband took great pride in this van, meticulous maintenance and traveled all over the country creating a lot of great memories. The van still has the original owners manual and even has their old road atlas with many notes and comments about their travels, as well as an old school compass mounted on the steering column. Still very much an original van with the exception of a few cosmetic changes over the years. I actually dealt with the shop that handled much of the service on the van and he confirmed that the owners were very diligent with regards to repairs and maintenance. Description as follows:

Interior:
*all original cabinets, still in place and in nice condition
* original ice box and sink combo
* jump seat with under seat storage
* fold down rear sofa bed
* all seat belts in place
* much of interior is still original including the flooring
* overall interior condition still very good, some minor blemishes
* dash and gauges all functional, prior owner added a booster blower for the heating system, all heating tubes still in place
* Has the original AM radio
* overhead pull out cot still functional

Mechanical:
* numbers matching, correct drivetrain
* everything operates as it should right down to the back up lights
* prior owner mentioned recent brake work, starts, runs and drives well

Exterior:
* one repaint to its original color, white two tone was not factory
* overhead fiberglass toppers in good shape with new gaskets
* still has original pop up tent, while still functional it has been patched in multiple areas and should be replaced at some point
* appears to be a solid unit, floors, fram, rockers still good

Overall exterior condition is good, keeping in mind this vehicle has been driven and enjoyed but not fully restored. Turns a lot of heads as is, has its share of bumps and bruises. Fun van to use and enjoy as it is or an awesome candidate to take to the next level with a full on restoration.

In closing, please take the time to review all the pics and don't hesitate to call with further questions; 517-425-0129. I also have contact with a reasonable shipper and would be glad to assist. Vehicle offered by a licensed MI dealer.
