1979 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon Description:

This classic VW camper bus is being offered as a running, driving project rather than fully reconditioned. It definitely needs cosmetic work, but is usable as it is. As the air cooled busses are steadily going up in price, we decided to not finish this one, which saves us time and gives buyers a chance to get one at a lower cost. 1979 was the final model year for this body style, and is easily identifiable by a one year only (and very '70's) color scheme. This example is an ASI Riviera, which is an American conversion done in Oregon and offered for sale by a group of VW dealers in the Pacific Northwest. These campers are far more plentiful on the west coast and not as commonly seen here. We purchased it from a dealer in California and had it shipped out. This is a solid, original, unrestored stock bus. It is rust free underneath and the engine is dry. It is a good running vehicle and is driveable now. We have performed the basic service including an oil change, new spark plugs, air filter, fuel pump filter & lines, muffler, battery, rear brakes, wiper blades, alternator and proper load rated tires. The bus runs & drives better than it looks. The body has dents and some rust spots, the interior is dry and a bit shabby, but we have had the bus thoroughly cleaned in case it goes to someone who wants to use it for a while before painting or updating the inside. Additional photos can be found on our website myautofocus. Please contact us for more details or to schedule a test drive. Please note that due to the age, we do not have financing available.
Please note that this VW is exempt from inspection and odometer reporting in NC due to the age. Pre-1981 vehicles do not have a standard 17 character VIN and cannot be checked by Carfax.
Buyer must contact us within 24 hours with their information for the ownership paperwork and be able to receive, sign and return a bill of sale. Furthermore, we ask that the buyer please be prepared to pay for the vehicle within 7 days AND promptly arrange to pick it up or have it transported as we have limited space.
