More Details & Pictures
This is a great running, driving Riviera pop top camper bus project that is almost ready to go. It could use some paint, but is still in nice enough shape to be used as it is. I was in the process of getting the bus roadworthy for title bonding, but it will need the windshield and rear bumper installed before it passes inspection. It comes with the new seal for the windshield. The engine is a fresh rebuilt 1600cc dual port, and the brakes have been gone through.
This bus came out of New Mexico and was last on the road in 1994. It doesn’t have much for rust since it came from the desert. It has had everything behind the cab to the rear done as far as rust repair. The outer rockers were replaced, as well as the spot in front of the passenger rear wheel, and the battery tray. The frame is rock solid and has had undercoat from the factory and no welding was required. There hasn’t been any rust or repair to any of the supports or floor and they all look great! There are a few spots on the front floor that will need to be repaired that you can see in the pictures. The rest of the bus is rust free!
The engine 1600cc dual-port engine was rebuilt, new German Solex carburetor, 009 distributor, electronic ignition, Bosch blue coil, and the brakes and shocks were replaced all around. New tail lights and side markers. The engine fires up quick, runs smooth, and pushes the bus down the road great! Stock transmission operates great and shifts good!
It has a new master cylinder, lower reservoir, upper reservoir, brake switches, front shoes, and all four front wheel cylinders. The rear brakes are in working order and haven’t been replaced. The front seats have new upholstery, and the door panels are new. The tent canvas has a few rips and will need to be replaced at some point. It is in decent enough shape to still be used as it is for a bit. The windshield is cracked and should be replaced to be drivable.
The pop-top is in nice shape and operates smooth up and down. The upper bed is still in great shape. Sliding door operates smooth, locks open, and closes easy. All original side windows open and close like they should and the glass is in great shape other than one pane that is broken. There is a replacement window that can be used for the glass pane that is included.
The bus is a solid running and driving vehicle and wouldn’t take much to make worth well over double what I am asking. I can provide a notarized bill of sale and the paperwork needed to get a clear title in CO. Most of the hard work has been done and with some paint and newer interior this could be a great show vehicle! The bus is just about ready to hit the road and explore!
