This beautiful bus has almost everything new. A 1775 engine with 85hp and goes 75mph. Rebuilt transmission with highway gears, new brakes, shocks (air shocks in the rear), tires etc. Subaru front seats.

Full instrumentation with oil temp, oil pres, and cht gauges plus a VDO tach. vlot meter
Great stereo with front and rear speakers. Blue tooth capable. Fully insulated with half inch foam all the way around. It keeps the noise down too. The doors sound solid when you shut them, not like the old tin can they used to be.

AIR CONDITIONED!!! Yes and an amazing system that can be used without the engine going. You can cool down the inside at the camp site with no engine or shore power.
It is a built in console ice chest with a heater core, a bilge pump and fan. Dump in 10 lbs of ice, and water, and the pump circulates through the heater core 32 deg water. It blows COLD air with only a few amps of 12v power. It can blow to the rear or front. (last picture) With the top on it it can be a seat or console. Great for your drinks too. It has a drain to the outside with two levels. One to keep about 3″ of water for good air conditioning and one lets it drain completely.

The inside is beautiful with a camper layout better than original. Hardwood cabinetry and wood ceiling and floors. Sleeps 3 without having to sacrifice the storage area behind the seat, plus storage under the bed when down. Built in microwave with its own battery and isolator for charging while driving. Shore power outlet. Seats for 7 with belts. New upholstery in rear.

Custom roof rack that will put a 300lb boat on the roof with the touch of a button via the built in electric winch. Pictured on the roof is not a canoe, it is an 18′ long viking style sail boat.

It has camper serial numbers, but the pop up stuff is missing. I closed the hole in with sheet metal, using screws so it can be removed easily if you ever find a pop up roof to put on there.

The red paint needs to be block sanded and repainted. You can see lots of little blems from the sander.

It has a salvage title, but this is not unexpected in a bus this old. It was the result of something way before I got it.
