1978 Bus "The Lurchmobile"

Post by Six Volt » Tue Jul 16, 2019 9:51 pm

It's time for me to move on. No time for this bus. Make me a reasonable offer and it's yours. Runs, drives, starts and stops. Can be difficult to shift at times, but I think it's the plastic bushings in the nosecone. Has new tires. Has original Fi set up. Has 72-74 heat exchangers. Needs rust repair, but front beam and frame are solid. Come and get it.

I'll bid $300 and a broken jet ski.

Sold! Heading south, but still in the viewing area.

Might have something else a little personal coming down the pike, but at my age with minimal time for VW's and minimal skill level, having an open parking spot in a Cleveland driveway is something to be cherished.

South as in the Canton/Akron area? If I have to see that thing all the time, I'll REALLY kick myself for not buying it!!!

Farther south than that, but this side of the Ohio river.
It was one of the best running buses I’ve ever driven, but it needs a facelift that I can’t provide!

Brad is a master bondo-man and he will get that rig looking tip top in 3 hours.
