I purchased this 73 Split window 2 months ago and after a month on the water to Washington I was able to pick it up.
Customs sucked as expected, but Fred and his shippers ACTS Shipping were great. I'd do it again with everyone involved in this sale, and probably will soon.
My bus was dirty from shipping and customs going through it in the rain and dirt but after some detailing in and out its awesome. Of course a few flaws that his camera didn't capture I did in person, but all in all it is exactly what I felt like I was buying. Runs great, body work and interior were done well, not backyard ghetto stuff. I'm overall really pleased and have sent several people to Fred and his shipper Darrin with confidence.

I will agree that your experience will will vary with Fred Root. In the spring of 2019 I ordered a bus from him and paid extra for pop out windows all around, a bed conversion and chrome handle replacement. The bus arrived in July of 2019 and never had any of the items complete. However Fred promised he would make it right. So being a trusting individual at the time I decided to order another bus in Aug of 2019 transferred him 23k plus shipping and he said he would square everything up on the new bus.

Long story short here I am over 2 years later and all I have from Fred Root is a laundry list of excuses why the bus hasnít shipped yet.

I know there are people who can vouch for him. However I am not one of them and would warn anyone who is thinking about buying a bus from him to think twice! He might send you something or just take your money and string you along!

Hello everyone from Russia!
I also bought from Fred. And not one but 3 buses that were sent to Russia. Am I happy with the purchase?
Yes. Smile
Detailed photos of exactly the places that I asked for were sent (I have been dealing with such buses for a long time). I was looking for buses that have not been restored over the past 10 years, because I do not want to do double work (first clean up of low-quality work, then restore). Technically, all 3 buses were in excellent condition (engine, gearbox, transmission). Therefore, I am completely satisfied with Fred as a seller. There was a delay of 3 months with the dispatch from Brazil, but that was an objective reason (Olympic Games). Wink
Best regards to Volkswagen fans
