1972 VW Camper Bus - Complete Subaru swap!   Price: $35000 OBO
Bought the bus 5 years ago in college as my Mechanical Engineering project, but now have to part ways to pay for grad school. This bus has been my most precious possession and hate to see her go! Hopefully, the new owner loves it as much as I do.

The bus has a complete Subaru swap (pictured) and bug transmission, new gas tank, new tail lights (changed them with the swap), new wiring harness, new axles... so many new parts, spent over $7k on the swap alone (have done other things to it). The reason for the swap was a minor fire (yes, I was one of those that forgot to check the fuel lines...), but was put out super fast - check the photos. Had always wanted to do a swap, so this was the best excuse.

The swap was done by a reputable mechanic in central CA, can give you his info too just in case you have any questions about it (he's always super helpful). All of this to make it go over 90mph on the highway! The swap was done end of August 2018.

Easily a daily driver, no rust. Changed the windshield, radio, speakers, front panels little over a year ago.

Registered in CA, with 2020 sticker already available.

If you're looking for specific photos, just ask! Can also post more. Or come see it in person too! Open to offers.
