Description for Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon 1978

This is my 1978 bus which I am the second owner since new which has never been my only transportation always stored in the garage and never driven in bad weather. There's no rust or any repaired rust all the factory tack welds are present and crisp that you'll see in the pictures. Its been painted one time in its 40 years and I wax it annually to maintain its flawless finish. The undercarriage is nice and clean and solid all original frame rails, outrigger, jack supports cab and cargo floor no weak spots or patches. Its always been well taken care of with all maintenance being taken care of as needed the shocks are all new, brake pads, rotors, shoes, drums, wheel cylinders and calipers are fairly recent and in great shape. I just had all new window seals replaced with german rubber seals. The middle sliding windows are a great perk adding nice air circulation without the noise of jalousies and much nicer than stationary windows with vent window. It has a progressive carburetor and always starts on the first key turn and runs great with the strong 2.0 liter engine, near new tires and recent tune up and oil change. There's nothing that I know of that it needs or will need shortly. The factory sunroof is awesome and doesn't make any noise of air infiltration even at high speeds. The headliner is original and super nice as with all the interior which by the way the seats are a definitely off white and NOT bright white I noticed they appear a lot lighter in the pictures than they are. I prefer the seating layout like it is in the "L' layout because it feels more open but if you'd like the middle seat moved to the traditional position I can definitely have it moved for you. All the upholstery is nice and firm no sagging spring, no rips or tears or stains and the cab flooring has its original rubber mat, the front seat pedestals have really nice rubber surround mats and the front kick panels are very nice not warped. The dash is excellent and doesn't have any cracks anywhere or sun fade I forgot to take pictures but will take some tomorrow. I took all the pictures this afternoon and tried to include everything I could think of but if I missed something just email me and let me know. All glass is excellent without any windshield nicks or cloudiness and again the german seals are new. I used to have flawless feedback but unfortunately one negative due to the person who bought my classic mini click on the buy it now and made the deposit but wasn't able to pay the balance and wanted me to wait far more than was reasonable (more than a month) and because of that she forfeited the deposit which might seem cruel but those are the rules and unfortunately ebays rules are that even though she didn't not follow through and buy the car she was allowed to give feedback which I think is ridiculous but in any event the person who bought it when relisted loved it and gave excellent feedback. That being said if you're serious about buying it please please have your finances in order and a no-refundable deposit is due within 2 days after the auction ends. My description is accurate and intentionally detailed but if you have and concerns or questions don't hesitate to email me, also if you're not local and need it transported email me with your city and zip code because I can get you a transport quote thats reasonable and dependable from whom I or a friend who collects cars have used. Please don't rely on the companies that ebay advertises there are far more reasonable companies but without first hand experience they can be hard to sift through when looking on the net so don't hesitate to ask you might be surprised how reasonable it is. The bus is beautiful and anyone would be proud to own it please click on "enlarge image" underneath the picture below for additional pictures
