1978 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon Champagne Edition II

This is an astonishingly clean, solid - and rare CEII bus. Volkswagen sold less than 200 of these in the U.S. in 1978, making it one of the rarest VWs - and one of the hardest to find.
This one is a unicorn! Only two owners since new. She drives strong and smooth, looks fantastic, and is going to make someone VERY happy for years to come.
She was kept snug in a garage in Oregon for 35 years, and is as original and clean as they come.
--Only 157k original miles
--Totally stock and original - never restored
--Original paint looks amazing!
--Virtually no rust - inside and out
--Clean dash - no cracks, with clock. Comes with the radio block plate.
--Factory AC under under the dash (not working, but it's all there)
--Nice interior - no middle bench, rear bench is nice, front seat backs are nice, bottoms are worn
--Factory cargo area floor board and floor insulation board (super rare)--Cargo floors are spotless and front floor is solid--Seat pedestal rubber is original - and good (never removed)
--Rear spare tire and tire cover with locking tabs, with factory tire strap
--Retractable side step with original spring still attached (uber rare)
Recently given a fresh tune up and compression check, along with a brake adjustment - everything is solid and ready for the road.
Clean Oregon title, registered through 10/2017.
Good luck!
