Car description

Selling my classic 1970 “bay window” VW bus, also known as the Transporter Van! This is a VW Type 2 vehicle, equipped with the VW 1600 engine. The actual engine displacement is 1584 cc (96.6 cu. In.), according to the Volkswagen Official Service Manual, also included in sale. This engine has a new single carburetor. This vehicle runs well and is regularly maintained. Vehicle typically only taken in town on occasion and estimate less than 1,000 miles of driving on the car each year in the last 5 years of ownership.

Please read the vehicle condition section - As noted, this vehicle is in used condition and is being sold 'As Is' which should be expected of a 50+ year-old vehicle. There is no warranty, no guarantee on parts or performance after purchase. Buyer is encouraged to conduct an inspection personally of the vehicle prior to purchase. I will provide additional photos and information to serious buyers - please ask questions. This is a running vehicle. The mileage value above is approximate - I am not the original owner and exact mileage is unknown.

Included with vehicle sale:

Volkswagen Official Service Manual, by Bentley Publishers

Box of extra parts, to include electric connectors, control knobs, gauges, fuses, extra ignition housing, and miscellaneous items


The winning bidder must submit a $500.00 deposit within 48 hours of end of auction. Any violation of payment terms will be reported to Ebay (Note: This vehicle is being relisted, as some of you may have noticed seeing the listing previously. Previous winning buyer failed to pay deposit and final payment - individual was reported to Ebay - please, serious buyers only!). Acceptable forms of payment are either -

1. Wire transfer (routing and bank account information will be provided to buyer upon receipt of deposit).

2. Cashier's Check or Official Bank Check from U.S. Federally Insured Bank or credit union (mailing address will be provided to buyer upon receipt of deposit (certified mail or controlled delivery such as Fedex is recommended).

3. If bank loan/credit line - I will accept a check directly from your lender/bank.

Buyer has 10 calendar days from close of auction to make payment in full. The vehicle will not be shipped until funds clear the receiving bank account. Typically a wire transfer is immediate or held for a much shorter period of time than bank check. I will work with buyer to conduct the most efficient transaction and in the least inconvenience to buyer.


Buyer is responsible to arrange for, and pay for shipping. I will be flexible with the shipper and I will meet the shipper in-person on the day the vehicle is picked up. Very flexible!

Local pickup is acceptable.


I will ship all extra parts, automotive manuals/books, relevant receipts, paperwork, wiring diagrams, and title (CA "pink slip") at my expense, domestically. For international purchases, I am happy to share 1/2 shipping cost of these extra items, and prefer to utilize a controlled delivery service such as Federal Express or DHL.
