John Watjen was interested in this bus last week so we went out to look at it, the seller's description is accurate- typical Ohio rust in the door bottoms and etc. Some surface rust in the windshield frame but not rotted bad, if you sandblasted these spots they would pinhole. Frame and important stuff underneath is good, but expect normal problems like brake lines etc as they're all OE. Not original color, it was brown/tan IIRC. CV boots are torn. Fuel gauge inop. He has an extra slider that he's including with the sale. It runs and drives well but has an exhaust leak at one port so it's slightly noisy. Sunroof might work with difficulty but leaks so the interior is quite moldy. 40k original is a stretch but not impossible. Overall not bad if it's what you're looking for, John already has too many Vanagons so he passed on it.

79, one year only heat exchangers. Although,not a big prob,as 72-74 can be easily modified to work on one year only (for bay) cyl heads, same as air cooled Vanagon square port. BUT, it is a bay sunroof. Too bad about the color change.

Out of curiosity, are the sunroofs from that era a PIA? I'm assuming all the parts are available if needed?

A lot of the parts are only available used, the drain tubes clog and rot inside the body causing all kinds of issues if not kept clean.
