All these are fitted to the Type 2 camper we found on Bring a Trailer. The 1974 example was custom built to offer accommodation for up to four people. Although there is no fancy Westfalia equipment, the van features a Riviera pop top and a camper-style interior that does the job just fine. The skilled builder installed red-oak paneling in the cabin and custom upholstery and interior lights. Thanks to the CD-stereo system, the Bus can become an entertainment station, perfect for those wild surf nights at the beach.
We imagine the van has known quite a few of them, and a couple of pictures in the gallery prove it was a promiscuous character. The owner didn’t need a kitchenette or other useless equipment, but he sure wanted to cool his beer. We assume this is what the big box in the center of the van does unless it is a storage box, which would be a bummer.
Nevertheless, we must stress that this camper van is in excellent shape, being recently refurbished. The engine got the most attention, with many aftermarket and replacement parts installed. If you like the Bus or just dig its careless style, you’ll find it on Bring a Trailer. Only one bidder placed an offer, but it’s a bold one at $9,000.
