1977 Volkswagen Bus
SWEET VW BUS, 1600CC, 4-SPD, SOLID BODY, TURN-KEY CRUISER, READY FOR THE BEACH!
If you are like us, you can't help but instantly fall in love with classic vehicles like this 1977 Volkswagen Bus. Sure it's not a pristine show car, but that's what we love about this! It's in the condition to do either 1 of 2 things: 1. Drive the wheels off it like it is, or 2, take it to the next level. This Bus is in the perfect condition to be lovingly enjoyed for years to come, with no concerns about getting a scratch in the paint while cruising around the beach.
It also qualifies for a next-level restoration because the bus is just incredibly solid. That is pretty remarkable considering how many of these are rusted out beyond belief! That's not the case here, the body is in great shape. The paint is a respray that shows well, the beautiful Miami Blue hue is a great color to take out on the weekend and put it back in its natural habitat at the beach. Keeping it from being a #1 paint job is the passenger side sliding door where the paint got a little thin. Otherwise, it's a good paint job that you would be proud to showcase at your local cruise-in.
Mechanically, this bus is an absolute blast to drive! Think about it, when was the last time you saw any VW on the road being enjoyed? Much less a bus? The roof rack and bright blue paint turn heads anywhere you go! The 1600CC VW engine is a classic VW choice, and a smart one too. Parts are readily available, cheap, and these engines are so easy to repair it's just ridiculous! Chances are, any story you've heard about someone limping a VW home with chewing gum and a plastic fork is probably true. This Bus has that classic VW sound, and while it isn't particularly powerful, it is fun to drive in its own way. Sitting over the front wheels makes depth perception a breeze, and gives a feeling of control that is much needed in a vehicle this length. At the corners, you'll find brand new tires and wheels that were just put on in the last year.
The interior shows very well, you'll find parchment bucket seats up front and a custom-cut wooden headliner gives it a great rugged look that doesn't have the upkeep that your typical upholstered headliner would bring. Upfront, the black dash is remarkably void of any cracks or major flaws. Also worth pointing out that the middle seat is not missing like so many are, but if you are in the camping mode, 4-bolts and you can lift the center section out. Ultimately, the interior looks great in lighter colors, and it has been kept up over time, unlike many examples. Sit down, turn the key, and hit the road! Included in the sale is an extra gauge cluster.
If you are a fan of the VW buses, and don't want to pay $100k for the 21 or 23 window earlier generations, then this is the ride for you. This Bus has a strong “beach” vibe to it, and is easy to picture yourself having a blast with your friends and family this summer. Don't miss out on your chance to own this affordable turn-key classic!
