OVERVIEW

1970 Volkswagen Vans

  • DESCRIPTIONMy wife and I love this bus, but I have too many cars in the stable. This bus has been ours for several years and has been pampered. I stopped short of any full restoration as I am not equipped to do much of the work myself and would be at the mercy of others. In 2006 I did expend a considerable sum to have the motor re-built. I have kept a copy of the receipt involved in the transaction which includes an estimate of the van's value. The gentleman who rebuilt the motor is well-known locally (and beyond) in VW circles and is extremely competent. Around the same time, I changed careers and my free time is extremely limited...the van has basically been stored ever since...the new motor has less than 100 miles on it. The bus will fly, the motor is new...our loss will be a lucky buyers gain. EXTERIOR As to the exterior description...I will be as thorough as possible, but I do take excellent pictures which will help with the description process. BRAND NEW tires! Good glass! The side mirrors glass has faded, but I will be replacing those while the van is up for sale. The panels have some rust and there are a few small rust spots around the exterior, but it is very minimal...I purchased it this way, but have not allowed that problem to spread or worsen. As a matter of fact, I am researching the costs to have this repaired properly as it is the main exterior discrepancy. See the pictures...if you need to see more let me know. I have seen much worse than this, and is could be repaired with little trouble. The floors are in excellent condition! Some of the window gasket rubber is drying out, but that is not a big issue. The top is in super condition; the exterior is the original paint and is nice and straight. INTERIOR: Now the interior on this bus is phenomenal.... All original, all the seats with no rips or tears! The original mat is in the floor and is tear free. The headliner is in excellent condition with no tears! The rear bench seat has some yellow staining against its original white color. I have not attempted to clean this, but presently I am researching the most efficient and effective way to do so. I plan to clean the seat as much as possible while the van is up for sale. See the pictures...at worst; it could be dyed to its original color. The other seats show minimal wear. This interior is unreal. In my experience, this is rare. See the pictures....they will speak for the condition. I thought it was cool, but it still has the original spare tire cover, hubcap and even the original gas cap! I am a reputable ebayer (samhop1) and will be glad to forward my cell phone # to all serious inquirers. The bus will be advertised locally and on display on a high traffic thoroughfare. It will also be advertised on eBay, Craigslist, Auto Trader and other VW venues. This is a great deal. Thank you for your consideration of this fine VW!
