Description for Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon 1972

This sold last fall but due to ano contactbidder I ended up storing it another winter and am just now getting back to relisting it.Up for bids is a very nice original VW Riviera camper van. This has not been restored. All the interior is original and in very good condition. The body is in great shape for a 47 year old van and has no rust through on the body at all. Sure it has a few dings and some rock chips but its a used vehicle that has been on some cool road trips to Alaska and the west coast. The underside was undercoated back in the dayto help preserve the undercarriage(see pics and video of bottom). This van came from Florida and was stored ina friends barn for over 20 years then I bought it and its been in my garage for nearly 5 years. I have 3 teenage kids and this van does not fit us so I bought a Westy with the upper bed so it fits us better. This van has a manual transmission and I did upgrade the engine to an 1800 cc engine from a 1973 van and it runs very nice. Last fall it got a full tune-up(spark plugs, wires, and points & condenser)and both carbs were rebuilt and synchronized. Idid paint the wheels and put 4 new tires onand they have less than 50 miles on them. Also the left front brake was a bit sticky so its in right now getting a new brake master cylinder and both front calipers are getting rebuilt.This spring the battery was dead because I forgot to unhook the battery and the clock deadened the battery over the winter. So I just put a new battery in it last week along with 2 new air filters and fresh oil and filter. The only thing that does not work is the fuel gauge.All the lights work as does the radio. The pop top is just big enough to stand up and stretch and makes changing your clothing a lot easier thannot being able to stand up. Over the years we picked up a matching rug, blanket, and some place mats. The winning bidder can have those too. Inside are the curtains it came with along with a front windshield curtain that hooks up for complete privacy. I took this van to a couple car shows last summer and brought home a couple trophies. Everyone wants to talk to you when they see this van. If your looking for a very cool original VW camper van this one should work for you. Please look at all the pictures and watch the attached video that we took last fall. We did give it a good polish yesterday so it looks even better than the pictures and video show as some of the spots and streaks polished them off. The mileage shows 44,015 and I do not know if its actual but given the condition it very well could be. Due to the age of the vehicle it is sold Used, As-Is. Feel free to come look at it or ask questions. Buyer can pick up or arrange shipping. I can help load if needed. I can also store this van for up to 90 days as long as you pay for it and insure it. A $500 paypal deposit is due within 48 hours of the auction ending. The remaining is due within 10 days. All funds must clear my bank before the van leaves here. Thank you for looking and good luck bidding.

I will be on vacation in the Dakotas the last weekend of the month and gone for 6-7 days so please arrange shipping around that.
