The post says it is either a 1974 or a 1977.


Driven by that bus for many years. It's been sitting at that gas station, moves spots every once in a great while. Never stopped to really look it over, but seemed like it was in pretty decent shape.

Spotted a pretty sweet deal in Jersey where you rarely find good deals on anything VW. 2 Westy's for $4000 OBO. They are rough, but one is driveable and the other is decent for parts. Both rusty. https://jerseyshore.craigslist.org/cto/d/2-volkswagen-type-2-sage/6612439861.html

Obviously this guy hasn't been monitoring The Samba for prices and availability of type IV engines. Rolling Eyes
He's willing to pay $500 for a working engine with fuel injection. Laughing
Well, heck.... I'll go as high as $600!

he also said core.

Yup, $3500 sounds like a good starting price. But it will probably sell for much less than that.
Sellers can dream!


Well, like you said it definitely has a lot going for it being in Cali and smog exempt - but yes, gonna need a lot of time and money whoever buys that!

BUT it is a Westy and a '75, so NO SMOG check required in California!


Nice solid platform, but even without rust there is quite a lot of bodywork there - not to mention interior work, no motor - shouldn't it be listed more like half that price?
