For Sale: 1979 Volkswagen Type 2 in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

A Volkswagen Type 2 Bus is all about packing the most classic car fun in an economical package. So this 1979 camper van represents a restored VW that gives you vintage flair while also being an attractive home away from home.

This VW Bus loves to show you it's a vintage machine. This starts with the windows. This is a Brazilian import, and that means unique detail, like body features from the earlier Type 2s. So you get all those small windows in a row and the iconic wraparound rear glass. The cream yellow paint has the tone that was popular in the 1970s, but there's a gloss that tells you it's a far fresher application. The white bumpers, smooth hubcaps, and side double doors are all part of the true vintage style. And everything from the fog lights to the dual vintage roof racks make this classic road trip ready for even today.

Inside, the set up in the front is clean and comfy. You have vintage pieces like the VDO gauges and dual-spoke steering wheel. These are mixed with the right driver comforts, like upgraded bucket seats with comfy velour upholstery and shoulder seatbelts. In the back, the individual curtains and wood-like flooring make for an inviting atmosphere. And it's also quite useful with a power inverter, storage shelves, and a bench seat that folds flat into a bed. And a proper sink with storage tanks is quite useful when out camping in the wilderness. And if you're at a more organized campground, the water and electricity have outside hookups.

The engine bay has a clean style, and the 1600cc motor is part of the backbone of early VW steadfastness. And this one reaffirms it in the way it fires up with ease. The dual Solex carburetor setup allows the motor to inhale freely while creating that iconic air-cooled hum. The crisp-shifting four-speed manual transmission shifts crisply, power brakes, and modern cruising tires feel good out on the road to give you a VW worthy of a nomad lifestyle.

All those windows give you a ton of nostalgia, and all the comfort upgrades just make you want to hit the road. So if you ever wanted to be a wanderer, do it in style. Call today!!!
