This bus was just on here for $1500. Yet another bus to make the transition from the good deals thread to the whines.

Needs frame work or just a new frame?

Would it be worth $9000 after a new frame is under it? Not sure here

Maybe trades, EBT, WIC, or just plain cash.

Not sure what to say there...

Are they transferable even? Conversely, could you break off a piece of that bus and go get a slab of government cheese?

I've got a fresh month on my EBT for that roof rack, but the jackwagon shows it in the ad prominently, only to tell us it's not for sale. Evil or Very Mad

I didn't think so but maybe he's expecting you to show up in person and buy needed goods with your card

Early Bay reservoir. Mounted under the dash. In 71 they went to a square one.
I think there was a 68 only version too. 71 was behind the drivers seat.

This bus has been for sale on here for over three years now. Cool bus with a lot of potential but obviously overpriced for the work it needs:

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=1887803

This bus is really nice. I like it a lot. Once again, it's been on here for a long time so probably overpriced:

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2157386

I don't see this happening at that price for a pink two-tone custom double cab but what do I know?:

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2293038


I could go on and on, there are plenty of examples. I think most of the split buses here are overpriced.

Agreed, this bus would be sweet with some strategic metal repair and blending. Price definitely needs to come down though. I think the airbox hackery has scared away most people.
