1972 Volkswagen Type 2 Bus
An enduring icon on the outside and a custom comfy cabin on the inside - this 1972 Volkswagen Bus has been customized with all the right comforts to be the counter-culture classic you've dreamed about. And it's available today at an exceptional price. You've seen how much the market loves the VW Type 2 (AKA, Bus). So when you see the affordable price, you think that all you're doing is buying nostalgia. But as you dig deeper, you find this is a turn-key ready machine that has so much to offer. The two-tone light olive green and white is the kind of color you'd expect from the factory in the '60s, but it has the telltale clearcoat luster of a more modern application. VW would call these station wagons, but the distinctive shape earned these a "breadvan" nickname for how they maximized every inch of the wheelbase. It gives them the space to be great travelers, and so you even see that with all the destination stickers in the windows. The driver gets all the right comforts with a tan bucket seat, large steering wheel, and a gearshift within easy reach. There's even a nice AM/FM/CD stereo upgrade. But the true luxuries are all behind this. The rear portion has been fitted with a parquet floor, a pop-up table, and forward & aft lounge-style seating. If that seems like a very home-like space, then you'll appreciate the window curtains and vent windows that make this a nice place to spend some time even when the van is parked. The engine is Volkswagen's famous flat-four unit. While you already know how virtually bulletproof that powerplant is, you'll love to know this 1700cc unit was given a tune-up in 2014. Plus, there have been other great investments in keeping this one solid on the road, including a new fuel sender, steering box, and a full front end service (ball joints, sway bar mounts, torsion leaves.) The four-speed manual transmission has a crisp action that allows you to take full control of the motor, and stopping is even well in-hand thanks to a front disc brake upgrade. Oh the places you will go... but only if you're the first to grab this deal. These don't stay long in our showrooms, so call today!
