1968 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon1968 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon Additional Info:We purchased this Double Cab locally from a man who owned it for over 20 years. It was garage kept and he drove it 2-4 times per year. He purchased it from a gentleman who went by the name "VW George" from the Lower Hudson Valley VW Society. "VW George" purchased it from a gentleman who brought the truck from California to New York State.
As with any older classic vehicle, its best to look at it in person when possible. Themileage on this bus is 79,540 but what is most important is the condition of the body, undercarriage, motor and transmission...which, in this case is excellent.
If you are from the NJ area and go to the CJVWS Flanders show then you may have seen this Double Cab either in the swap section or show line up.
Brazilian roof height canopy was purchased from California by the previous owner. He sand blasted the frame and sprayed it with non-sanding epoxy primer in a color extremely close to original. He also had all new piping sewed in the canopy canvas.

Every brown spot you see on the truck is from California owner putting RUST CONVERTER on every scratch and paint rub off area thus converting it to brown and effectively sealing it in his mind (I guess).
