1972 Volkswagen Bus/VanagonThis 1972 Volkswagen Westfalia Transporter Bus is a one of a kind!! A True Survivor!
The 1.7 motor was upgraded to an early 80's 2.0 Liter. It has been completely rebuilt with NEW Heads, istons, ings, earings,Machined Crank and Machined Block. All outer engine Components were replaced NEW and updated like Electronic Ignition, ual Carbs, lectronic Fuel Pump, tc. This 2.0 Liter has Hydraulic Lifters and that means NO Adjusting of the valves every time you change the oil like on a type 1 motoror older 1.8 and 1.7 Literpancake motors.The Sheet metal was ALL Powder Coated.
An 091 Transmission out of an early 80's Vanagon was fullyrebuilt.Also aHigher 4th gear wasinstalled to achieve Highway speeds while keeping Engine at lower RPM's. New Clutch, ressure Plate, hrow Out Bearing, esurfaced Flywheel and Rebuilt Transmission have less than 3,000 miles on them. Muffler was replaced at same time.
The Interior is ALL Original except Front Seats which were recovered with Genuine VolkswagenVinyl Seat Covers. The Bench seat that folds into a bed for 2 people isvery comfortable. The Sink / Cooler Combo is missing. It does have the Upper Canvas Cot that will sleep one.Also it has the Rear Mosquito Net that buttons in when rear hatch is up for more breezeway. The door panels have some wear at the usual bottom areas. There is an updated AM/FM CD Stereo and two door panel speakers. Just Installed a NEW Power Jack for Mobile phone chargers. Radio and Phone Jack are Powered when bus is not running also. The original table leg is missing, hough it has a temporary I've been using whole time I've owned it. The "COOL Factor" is, ost Interioris unmolested, enuine Westfalia Camper Conversion. The Tent has a few small tears at the bottom right at back and a couple in front where it has gotten hung up in the Pop-Top folding Rod Braces. I pressure washed the Tent and had NO dripping leaks in the interior. I've camped in pouring down rain and had NO leaks. (I was pleasantly surprised!!). The Zippers on Screens right and left ofTentare stuck; (might be able to massage some lubricant and get them to work?) The Rear Tent Screen Zipper does work and ironically the screen is ripped, hough I unzip it anyway for air flow.
The Exterior Paint was originally Brown and White. Someone or two? had some fun doing their thing painting Hippie theme. I do have a spare tire, ack and lug wrenchfor it and can tell you much more about it when we talk.
The suspension was Customized to lower the bus. The shocks, ie rod ends and ball joints were new less than 12,000 miles ago.Werecently completed a brake system inspection. All 4brake soft lines were replaced. The rear brake wheel cylinders and brake shoeswere replaced. The front calipers and pads were in great shape (Pads 60%). Calipers and Drums were replaced before I bought it and can clearly seewerefreshless than 20K miles ago. Also we flushed the brake Lines andinstalled ALL New Brake Fluid. (Less than3 months ago).
