Sold as is where is. Vehicle is located in Pasadena, CA. This is a vintage vehicle. It's 41 years old. It is not perfect. For the right collector-it comes close! No tire kickers. Do not knock or disturb the owner without an appt. This vehicle is conveniently located in Southern Cali close to major shipping ports for overseas buyers. Thank you and have a great day!

Thank you for all of the emails-It ran when parked about two years ago. Has not been started since. It shifted fine, braked fine, and ran strong. Did not pull to either side when driving and did not pop out of gear when in reverse. It has been sitting for two years. It will need to be towed to it's new home.It will need mechanical attention to get it on the road again after sitting for some time.The interior is complete. It is worn because it is 41 years old. The seats need the usual reupholstering. The rugs are there. The fold out bed is in nice condition. With some TLC this vehicle can be enjoyed this summer. It is structurally sound. Original paint tells no lies. This bus is better than a barn find. Itis perfect for a resto.Smells like a vintage bus should. It's clean in and out. Have not changed a thing because I am proud of the shape it's in. Drove it long distances with no issues. The first owner was an elderly lady from CA who babied it and sold it to another grandmain RI. It has been very loved and has a good vibe. I bought it and have been holding onto it because it's the nicest one I've come across. Selling due to loss of storage.
