Description for Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon 1971

Hesitantly considering for sale my 1971 VV Bus. Tin Top Bay window with the easy to maintain upright 1600 dual port motor. Arguably the most simple motor in automotive history to learn and keep healthy. Motor in this one was recently rebuilt under 4,000 miles ago and runs strong. Recent brakes overhaul. New lines and caliper. New headlights. New clutch cable. Custom cargo area build out that you can lounge in with an L shaped couch that turns into a full back area bed. Recently done, all new upholstery and tons of storage underneath. This bus is incredibly solid in all the right areas and built with a sensible custom look that still compliments its vintage build date. A completely ready to road trip get in and go bus with opportunity to make it your own from here or restore as original given it's uncommonly solid body. I've used the bus all over New England just under 3,000 miles this summer. Bus is lowered (but not obnoxiously slammed) correctly and doesn't rub under load. It is a ‘rat rod' style bus with more character than Cartoon Network! Paint is a matte red primer and forced patina (got the look without the rust!) this is not a restored bus, it is far cooler. speedo and dash lights are intermittent. New cable will be included. Needs a blinker switch. Turns on but doesn't blink. Simple fix. Couple quarks like that here and there but after all it's a great bus and ready to be enjoyed and personalized by the next care taker. I really hate to sell the bus, but I have the opportunity to buy my friends earlier split window and can't keep both unfortunately. MAY consider trades for something that would interest him in place of cash or a combination there of. Get an early bay window bus while they are still affordable! $11,500 OBO
