1973 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon TransporterFor sale, my loving VW bus, called Nell, a 1973 hightop camper van. Clean title, flat pancake engine with carburetor. Original color is blue, painted green in London. 80,000 kilometers on the odometer.
History, the bus was made in Germany, shipped to the US. In 1980 it was shipped to the UK where it spent 8 years in Ireland, then returned to the States, where I found it in Arcata, California 5 years ago left out in a field.
The engine is solid, I've used it as a daily driver and camping. I bought it to restore to it's heyday state, it's been a passion bringing it back to life. I've lifted the fiberglass hightop up to put new seals and screws. All the windows have new seals. The walls have been insulated with spray foam, with new wood paneling and shelves.
This bus is a survivor, there's still a lot more restoration work that needs to be done, rust, upholstery, door panels, etc.
If interested, bus is in Las Vegas, NV.
Please contact me to get the full details before making purchase. Ideal candidatehas 100% intention to continue the restoration process for this VW bus.
Sold as a collectible, but completely a daily driver.
