Classic Car Overview

So when youre heading out on the road to follow your favorite band from city to city, this 1974 Volkswagen Type 2 Bus is probably what you should be driving. Nicely maintained with a fantastic artistic wrap thats period-perfect, it lives up to the legend and puts a smile on everyones face who sees it. Yes, its a vinyl wrap so you arent going to be married to it forever, but the far-out artwork is by well-known Nashville artist and musician, Ray Stephenson, so it has a bit of a pedigree. Underneath youll find traditional blue and white paint thats in great shape, but nobodys checking color codes and itll make finding your way home in a crowded field of campers that much easier. Fit and finish are typical VW, which is to say well above average, and while it has certainly been driven and enjoyed a bit, the overall look is a bus thats been loved. Theres a jaunty roof rack with spare tire mount, as well as a vent, so hanging out in the VW is comfortable when youre visiting the great outdoors. A few splashes of chrome dress things up and the white bumpers are a traditional look. Inside is where the action is, with a pair of bucket seats up front and a panoramic view through that giant windshield. In back, there are decent travel accommodations, including a rear bench seat that converts to a bed. The custom gray cloth upholstery is in excellent condition with integrated ambient lighting that add to the VWs inviting look. Clever storage cubbies abound and the carpets are in very good condition considering that this bus can also be a home. A powerful stereo system provides appropriate entertainment both on the road and at the campsite and the gauges have been augmented with modern faces. The whole things pretty darned neat, if you ask me. VWs erstwhile and utterly reliable air-cooled flat four wont get you there quickly, but it will unquestionably get you there. This is actually one of the best-running VWs of any sort weve featured, and someones obviously taken exceptional care of the mechanicals inside this bus. It starts easily and pulls with surprising gusto (its all relative), and it has one of the most precise VW shifters (again, relative) that weve experienced. Theres not much to look at in there, but youll see signs of regular maintenance and correct replacement parts, not some hacked-up project by a backyard mechanic, and the ever-charming exhaust note will announce your presence before you even arrive. The underside is in good order with a remarkably uniform covering of dust and surface scale, but nothing seems to be amiss and again, there are signs that this VW has always been loved. Disc brakes up front, along with a rather large sway bar, make it feel confident in traffic and the ride is plush on the open road where it cruises happily at 60 MPH. Standard steel wheels are painted white and wear VW hubcaps, along with a set of recent 185R14 blackwall radials. Americas love for the VW Microbus is alive and well, and owning this one makes you a member of a very enthusiastic group of folks. Call today!
