1968 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon

Custom Woodworking meets Vintage Surf-The interior of this beauty is revamped in the like of the original Sundial style with a fold-out bed, cabinets, a stove, sink and a fridge, and one reverse-view seat with storage. The floor is oak while the majority of the cabinets and drawers are maple. Walnut was used for a splash of dark color on some of the drawer fronts. The drawers in the rear cabinet have a sweetly smelling cedar bottom. Some of the drawers throughout the van have false bottoms to stash any secrets you may wish to keep. There is a water tank, which is filled from the exterior and runs to a hand pump sink that sits right next to a 3-burner RV-approved propane stove (with fold-down metal cover/backsplash). The stove also heats up the van in a heartbeat for those shoulder season camp-outs in the desert or at altitude! The countertop is dark green with a fern-like patterned formica and a maple backsplash. The roof and door and cabinets are insulated with standard house insulation covered with a faux pine paneling. There is a heater next to the bed that can be plugged in to one of the multiple outlets that functions when plugged into land power. The Fridge runs on a cigarette lighter or a wall plug. The new upholstery on the bed and reverse seat is a dark green corduroy (see picture). The driver’s and passenger seats are a sand tweed (see picture), also new. It comes with an awning that is original and is blue and white striped. The pop-up canvas and netting was custom made about 10-years ago and has a little wear from rain and sitting. The van does have some leaky spots that could be fixed with new window seals. The van has been sitting for 5 years under cover. Exterior definitely has some rust and small dents. The color is the factory original cloud white. I have added a push button starter (instead of turning a key). I also installed an oil-temp gauge. The motor is a stock-built 1600 cc engine, which was removed from a 1971 van and installed in this one. It has an after-market air cleaner and new battery. Mileage is a guesstimate of what I put on the motor since I rebuilt it.
