Buyer Beware.
I recently purchased a 1975 VW West which was advertised off this site and others from Troy Smith. Troy lives in Kansas and I live in Colorado. I had several conversations with Troy about the Westie before I purchased it. I asked Troy how the engine was he stated in the ad that it was rebuilt 2k miles before parked 5 years prior. He stated via phone which I have recorded that he has started it with starting fluid and it ran fine. He did state the tank would need flushed and the carb needed rebuilt and it would be fine. I did just that. started it up and it sounded like an aircompressor. I pulled the engine and found a huge crack in the case and the cylinder head blown. I reached out to him and no reply. I advise you to use caution when dealing with him.

I bought a 60' Kombie from Troy around the first of the year. I sent a deposit he held it in good faith for two weeks as I changed my plans a few times due to bad weather mostly. Not an easy thing to do with so many flakes to deal with out there!
The bus I bought was quite a bit of money for me anyway. (14K) But the bus was every bit as good as I had hoped for better actually.Extremely low rust, unmolested very complete and I am very satisfied. This is the bus I've been looking for. Thanks Troy
As for the folks bemoaning the price of other buses he has they are no more ridiculous than many others on this site! Stay strong my friend
