For Sale: 1978 Volkswagen Transporter in Nanaimo , British Columbia

Vehicle Description

Check out this one of a kind Volkswagen Transporter (Pre - Champagne Edition)!

Originally a 1978 Volkswagen Champagne Edition, this van was stripped to metal (sandblasted) and professionally repainted in a Tacoma Sand. The exterior stripes were designed by myself and applied professionally - I wanted to commemorate the original colors used in the original Champagne Edition exterior stripes.

The Good:

- The engine was recently serviced at a reputable classic Volkswagen mechanic and includes a re-jetting kit for its Weber Dual ICT Carberstors. - -Starts ever time the first time.

- Van has been stored since it’s paint job.

- Body is solid. No holes rusted through anywhere on vehicle

- Brakes recently serviced

- Out of Province inspection completed and passed (BC OOP inspections are very rigorous)

The not perfect but not a huge deal:

- Heater has been decommissioned (common on all these vans)

- Drivers seat has some central wear (however beaded wooden classic cover has been added)

- Ceiling has a slight tare

- Could use new radio

All in all I originally searched for a solid van with a good engine before I started this overhaul. It was In good driving order prior completing anything on the body. Unfortunately I must see it go. Very unique design looking for a good new home.
