Description:

1969 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon

This beautiful, uch loved 1969 VW Campmobile is up for sale. This VW bus has been our daily driver and the perfect adventure vehicle for those times when we just wanted to hit the road, amp and explore Southern Arizona and Mexico. The functional and mechanical aspects of the vehicle have been sorted out, s illustrated by the extensive list of details bellow. The vehicle does not represent an immaculate restoration, ut instead it has the appropriate level of “wear and tear” for a vintage VW bus that has been well used and loved for. Our family is growing and our needs are changing, nd thus we are reluctantly selling our “kombi” to the next loving owner and onto a new adventure. We hope that it will continue to serve its new owners as well as it has served us.
