Car description

Own a piece of history! This bus will take you back to nostalgic times as you reminisce about the good times of the 70's. We have been stopped so many times by folks who owned a bus "back when."

This bus is truly beautiful. We just don't drive her enough. Could easily be a daily driver. Needs to go to someone that will drive her regularly.
The bus is garage kept, turns over immediately with zero hesitation, and is incredibly reliable. When we bought it from previous owners (Dec 2014) it was advertised to have just 3,000 miles on a new 1600 cc motor (with dual carburetors and header exhaust). We have put less than 4,000 miles on it in the past 3 1/2 years, so total miles on rebuilt engine = less than 7,000! New battery 3/2018. Bus has been in Florida for majority of past decade and was brought from New Mexico by couple that restored her. You will be amazed at how comfortable and smooth the ride is! Beautiful paint inside and out, custom upholstery, pop-top canvas, original window screens & stool, and much more. The turn signal lights on the dashboard light up but do not blink but do blink externally. Drivers side window is out of tract. It is in the up position currently but will need to be situated for window to roll up and down. Those are the only two issues we are aware of.
This bus creates happiness wherever she goes! People will wave at you, flash peace signs and hang ten signals as you drive by. A definite conversation starter. Take Purple Haze camping and you'll meet everyone around you before you know it.

Purple Haze comes with Jerry Garcia doll, only right since the previous owner passed him onto us with the bus. Also comes with your own copy of How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive: A Manual of Step by Step Procedures for the Compleat Idiot.

Purple Haze was featured in issue # 1 ofVolks America Magazine.
