1969 Volkswagen Bus/VanagonFor sale: Custom EV 1969 Bay Window Bus - camper edition.
Must be willing to learn some EV basics or willing to find an ev mechanic who can regularly inspect and maintain the car. This car is low voltage compared to its EV brethren, but EVs can still be dangerous if you're not careful or don't fully understand what's under the hood. I converted this car myself as a hobby. It will need regular inspections and maintenance. I'm selling it because I'm starting a new project. Might consider a trade for Tesla of equivalent value.
