This 1971 Volkswagen Type 2 Bus has that iconic look we love, and it drives with the kind of feeling that tells you it there have been investments in maintaining it with care. So this is the value-priced VW that has possibilities as vast as the open road.

We love the look of these Volkswagen Buses. Just like the Beetle, they have a distinctive shape that makes them instantly recognizable. Plus, the Type 2s were built with the kind of form that maximizes function. You even have some of the desirable earlier features, like the front bumper with integrated step. The two-tone blue and white gives this a nice classic style. The condition is for the kind of person who doesn't want to be nervous about driving their classics. After all, that's what a VW Bus was born to do, and you'll see that this one really keeps that kind of personality.

The interior is the basic and sturdy Volkswagen setup. It all feels quite authentic, right down to the stock AM radio that's still cranking out tunes. Up front there are dual bucket seats, a tall shifter, and the dual-spoke steering wheel that gives you a clear view to all the gauges. Plus, a forward-control van like this always gives a great view of the road. The center section has plenty of room for projects or cargo, and there's the correct bench seat in the back. So this is like a blank canvas that's ready for whatever you imagination has wanted to do with one of these legendary Volkswagens.

The 1600cc flat-four motor has a longstanding reputation for durability. Plus, we have a long list of the right investment in this motor. It includes ported cylinder heads, a rebuilt carb, updated ignition, new brake master cylinder, and more. It makes for a nice-running package that you take full control over with the four-speed manual transmission. Out on the road, these second series Type 2s have an upgraded suspension and the advantage of disc brakes. And those upgraded 15-inch BRM wheels not only give this a cool sporty style, but they also allow for a modern upgrade for comfortable cruising tires.

Complete with maintenance records, this is the VW Bus that was made for driving. So if you love a true symbol for getting way out there, don't miss this deal. Call now!
