1985 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon

I bought this van from a very dishonest seller on EBay. How dishonest, ou ask? It even had to be towed off the transport because clutch was bad. I planned to take a road trip with my dogs, ut hurt my back and can't even get in it now. I have spent maybe $1500 in repairs, ncluding new clutch, attery, tc.---have receipts--- but it still needs more work. Ask any questions you want. My mechanic has said I can give his phone number so you can call him with any questions beyond my know-how and any additional repairs it needs. It runs pretty well. It wants to stall when you first start it, o you have to keep the gas pedal depressed a bit, ut goes fine after a few blocks. Tires are pretty good. It has all the appliances---fridge, tove, ink---but I have no idea if they work. A/C does not work; compressor is in a box, ut mechanic says it is rusted and may not work. Needs new wipers. Transmission OK. Front bucket seats are leather, think, ut back seats covered in very flimsy and torn cloth.
Van was really dirty when I got it. I did some cleaning, ut it still needs lots of elbow grease. Some tiny rust spots on parts of the body, he wheels, nd a large one near the rear window (see picture). There are extra curtains and a box of some spare parts, ostly belts, hich I will include. Odometer does not work. All other gauges seem to work OK. I am not physically capable of lifting the roof, o I do not know if or how well it functions. I have not tried the radio, ut I will try to do that before sale. Plastic weather strip torn on rear window; rubber guard missing on one end of rear bumper (see picture). I have not had it long enough to really tell you much more, ut am including as much detail as I can. I am selling it absolutely AS-IS. No returns. And a note to buyers in California: I have clear title but it is not registered yet as I was fixing it up to pass smog test here. Did not pass a smog pre-test. CA law requires Seller to pay for smogging unless buyer assumes that responsibility. I cannot be responsible if it needs more work to pass the smog test. So might be best for buyer from a state with less draconian smog laws. Got license plate number assigned on the title, ut the plates are not sent until it is smogged. $500 deposit with PayPal when auction ends and full payment within 3 days of auction end. Buyer is responsible for pick-up or shipping.
