For Sale: 1979 Volkswagen Bus in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

If you want a VW Type 2 that's a true magic bus, then keep looking at the photos of this 1979 Volkswagen Bus. Oh yes, it is certainly custom on the outside. With some nice extra details, and a value price, this a very cool vintage dream machine.


You get to decide what face you want to show to the world. The driver's side and front end will make people think you have a very vintage VW. There's a classic two-tone with good details like a full-size spare on the front and a luggage rack on top. Plus, there are some nicely coordinated with details like the white wheels and red VW logos in the hubcaps coordinating with the red and white two-tone of the body. The rear even has a hint of a sporty style with a bumper delete so people can see the EMPI exhaust. But what will really have people talking is the passenger side. The full-length mural goes to the heart of why these are a true symbol of the peace movement. And it has the texture and weathering to really showcase this is a one-of-a-kind-piece that has been driven around to spread the word.


Inside, the front has the classic VW charm with bucket seats, the forward-control steering wheel, and classic VDO gauges. While the exterior has the vintage attitude, you can make sure to have modern tunes thanks to an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input and a powerful speaker box. We all love these vans because they are quite configurable. Right now, you have two rows of rear seating. So you can choose to bring along family and friends, or build out into a true road tripping machine.


The engine is Volkswagen's famous flat-four unit. This air-cooled motor is known for its hardy nature, and this one fires up with ease. You take full control over it with the four-speed manual transmission. Plus, owning a later second-generation Type 2 has its benefits out on the road, including an improved suspension and the stopping power of front disc brakes. There will even be new tires at the time of the sale.


The magic bus is ready right now, are you? Call soon!
