I found this bus.
Its a 1967 original owner, original paint camper.
what is something like this worth?
The owner is an older retired guy who said "make me an offer".

Can't help you with the value, but I was surprised how clean that driver's mirror looks compared to the rest of the bus.

Is that thing complete? What a cool find! I bet it is worth a decent amount considering it looks to be a westy. I can't tell you what it is worth though.

67= not rare but cool find non the less. even better if the camper kit is in decent shape. the rack looks kinda wasted but you can put new non original wood on it and make it work.

look for rust. frame rust that is. rust around the window frames that is through rust not just surface.

Bondo/fiberglass noticable bodywork that may be poor?

driprail rust (through rust).

broken front door lower hinge points

rusted out airbox

rusted out lower cab door bottoms and cargo door bottoms

rusted out battery tray

rusted out lower nose (internal under it)

hacked dash?

hacked bulkhead if not a walkthru

cargo floor and cab floor rust

missing camper pieces

poptop canvas condition


all of these should be looked at and used to base your offering price and ability to negotiate

If the interior isn't rotted into itself I'd think $1000 would be an enticing starting point, too. It would be a good one to get mechanically solid but run it with all that patina. You can't buy that kind of weathering. Even the rack is gnarly.

My neighbor grew up on a dairy farm in NY state. He drinks Budweiser. I also worked with a guy at UPS who lives on a cotton farm outside of Statesboro, Georgia. He also drinks Budweiser.
