1979 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon****1979 Volkswagen bus for sale!****** The ONE & ONLY "Adventurewagen"******
57,841 *Original miles! As far as we know, these miles are correct, according to the previous owners, the service records, and the current title.
We are the third owners- previous owner inherited the bus, which was originally purchased brand new by their grandparents, so it's almost like we are only the second owners.
This previous owner only drove the bus 2-3 miles each day during the workweek, so it kept the bus running smooth but never put tons of miles on it.
Bus spent most of its life inland in California, in a dry environment that did not promote rust.
Bus is "ALL ORIGINAL"*******************************
Interior was kept clean and never altered. -----
Handcrafted teak and KOA wood cabinetry all along the bus interior- just beautiful. "Koa is arguably the most spectacular hardwood in the world! there is no other wood possessing the level of chatoyancy as koa wood does. (Chatoyant as it relates to wood means “varying in colour when seen in different lights..having the light-changing qualities of a gem," example- tigers eye.
Yes, that's right, only several hundred were EVER made, imagine how FEW are actually left in the entire world!! Ed Anderson had a unique and marvelous vision unsurpassed by modern vehicles made out of generic plastics and lacking even a fraction of the style his work possessed. He passed away two years ago, in his own much loved bus, making the Adventurewagen legacy even more prominent in today's culture. ("VW Camper- The inside Story, A Guide to VW Camping Conversions.")
This model is the second generation, T2. Four speed. Limited edition model to mark the final production of T2 models in Europe.
Please bear in mind that there is normal wear on the cabinetry, and there is an extremely small amount of rust on body, not on the frame! The only thing this bus needs is a new battery. Radio always worked, now stuck on one station, it should be an easy fix if that's something you need.
Bus is sold "as is," in still incredible shape for its time.
Front of interior dashboard is shining and like new.
Brand new tires, less than 10 miles!
Propane range, two- burner with stainless steel cover, placed smartly by slider door for adequate ventilation.
12,000 BTU furnace heater, 3.4 gallon propane tank.

Everpure water purification system.
12v / 110v refrigerator, runs on either system using golf cart batteries with solid state charging system. ( these golf cart batteries may need maintenance)
Double bed, sleeps two.
Loft, also can sleep two, for a total of four sleeping spaces!
Pull out dining table placed in front of bench seat, with leaf extender.
Under seat storage, rear storage, under and sides of sink storage, overhead large storage, full cabinets, spice rack space, utensil drawer.
Original 'cushioned vinyl' floor, beautiful brown patterning.
Reading lights and bright overhead lights.
High top design of bus means that even a 6 foot tall person can stand up comfortably in the interior and move about.
Beneath the bus there is undercoating!
This vehicle has been well maintained, regular maintenance at every turn, we have records.
Passed Smog test not long ago in Portland, Oregon.

We have the original sticker price tag along with all the upgrades grandma & grandpa purchased, they loved this vehicle and cherished it, it was their dream car and they named it Bill :)
:~)) Despite the long list of incredible features only found in this vehicle, the **absolute best** thing about this bus is the positive energy you get while driving it. Everywhere we go, Bill turns heads and brings the biggest smiles out of people! From babies to seniors, everyone loves the bus and points at it wildly and wants to ask questions about it, or tell stories about a bus they had like it back in the day that they wish they never sold.
We have not seen another bus quite like this one on the road, ever!
Yes, it's very hard for us to let go of our beloved bus, but it is time. It's important that Bill goes to someone that loves him as much as we do, any questions please ask! We can also get in touch over the phone if that's easier for you.
