This 1979 Volkswagen Bus Type 2 has been given plenty of recent investments to be a strong-running classic. So when one of the best symbols of the open road is done to enjoy the drive, it gets your imagination revving about all the possibilities with this VW.

This one gives you all the best basics you want in a VW Bus. 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 details like the white wheels and red VW logos in the hubcaps matching with the red and white two-tone of the body. We also have a large receipt file from the last few years detailing about $15k invested in this Volkswagen. It included fundamentals like body maintenance and adding a rear bumper. And so while there are going to be personal touches and additions you're going to want to do to this Bus, we like that this one give you a solid base to enjoy today and customize when you're ready. After all, part of the fun of VW ownership is all about making it your personal machine.

When you get 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 and a fresh headliner above. 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 1700cc air-cooled motor is known for its hardy nature, and this one fires up with ease. In fact, the recent investments include a proper tune-up. 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's even newer tires and the wheel bearings were recently serviced. So it rides down the road with confidence.

Complete with service manuals, this is the Bus that's ready for family, friends, or even a solo adventure. Basically it's up for whatever you want. So it's time to get creative and get on the road. Call today!!!
