I'm currently starting a new business & don't have the time nor money to restore her the way I want to, so unfortunately for me (& fortunately for you), I'm reluctantly listing my beloved bus for sale to help fund my new biz venture.
I'm looking for a simple, speedy transaction with the right person. Looking for a VW lover & collector who wants to fix her up right & not part her out. No scrappers! She needs to go to a good home!
Bus is an excellent condition for her age & is a great candidate for restoration. I would not plan on her being an immediate daily driver, as she's mostly been sitting & needs some attention first. She starts & runs fine when the ignition lock cylinder is installed properly. With a little TLC, she can be ready for the road pretty quickly.
This is a used & historical vehicle BEING SOLD AS IS. No warranty is implied or issued. I've described it to the best of my ability. Please feel free to ask any questions for more information & I will get back to you ASAP.
Buyer will be responsible for all shipping costs or can pick up locally in Aurora, Colorado, USA. If local pick up, NEEDS TO BE TOWED due to uninstalled ignition lock cylinder & expired plates/tags.
Deposit to be paid via Paypal within 24 hours. Remaining balance to be paid within 7 days via wire transfer or cash. Vehicle will be released only upon receipt of full payment & must be picked up within 7 days after full payment.
Thanks for looking!
