1972 VW Transporter Type 2 runs smooth, drives great, shifts smooth, and stops amazingly! This Bus was my daily driver all through high school. For the past 8 years, I have been traveling and living abroad so I haven't had much time to road trip. He is a trooper in all weather. There are no mechanical issues at all. I have regular maintenance done by my friend and old VW Pro that has been restoring and fixing buses most of his life. I can give you his contact info for future maintenance if you are local. I have the original Owner Operator Manual with Maintenance records ending at 42000 miles. In July of 2013, I wrote in my log book that it was at 59235 miles. We have been camping all over the Pacific NW and even went to Paradiso at the Gorge one year. Ran great in over 100+ degree weather.
I special ordered the tiles from the UK, madmatz. There is no visible body rust, and there was none on the interior when we gutted it 10 years ago. Seals all around are in great condition. The entire interior of the bus body has been sealed and lined with Dynamat Heat Barrier and Sound Deadening Mats. We made the jump seat, table, and under-seat cabinet. Lots of extras. I have the cot that can be installed in the front. A set of studded snow tires & propane heater for winter drives. Starts up great and runs great in freezing weather.
Driven 273,619 miles
The windshield has a new crack in it from the new road construction. My bus mechanic quoted me about $300 to replace it. The fuel gauge is a little wonky but it does drop to tell me that I'm getting low on fuel. The blinker control needs to be adjusted because you have to manually flip it after you complete your turn. I took the curtains out to wash them so you can choose to put them back up or not.
