1973 Sportsmobile Camper Bus – You Gotta See this!
99k Original Miles
Color – Red (Kasanrot)
Check out these 69 photos of this bus! —-> https://ibb.co/album/mpXOFa
The bus was running perfectly as it was parked indoors in 1989… it was just pulled out of the garage 3 weeks ago. (30 years stored indoors!)
The bus does not currently run or drive. Needs work first. see below
I have literally done NOTHING to it since pulling it out… except for airing it out 🙂
The bus is 100% original as far as I can tell (except the tires)… and EVERYTHING seems to be in place. (please see link above for MORE photos)
The inside is incredible. (please see link above for MORE photos)
Even has original Volkswagen radio! (this is rare from what I hear)
The frame has been Ziebart’ed – Rust Proofed! (there is obviously still some rust but it could be a lot worse!) – See photos
Seats are in near perfect shape (front, rear, and top bed)
Canvas on pop-top is in great condition, just needs some mildew removed.
ALL of the glass is in great shape
Bumpers (F and R) are intact with no bends or dents
Rim is pretty rusty but still usable/drive-able
Tires are completely shot.
ALL doors and windows work including Louvered Side Windows
It has a roof rack! (check out the photo)
The underbody needs some attention as far as the frame and one lower side body panel is concerned.. nothing a plasma torch, a welder and some Bondo can’t fix. (please see link above for MORE photos)
The drive train & suspension will need some attention… I wish I wanted a project because this would be fun to work on.
Rear wheels are currently seized up (drum brakes) and all tires are shot.
Upon purchase, the bus will need to be trailered home with the front two wheels on the ground or on a flatbed.
Other included items not pictured:
1. Child’s cot that spans across the front two seats. (this thing is sweet!)
2. Bus Jack for jacking up the vehicle.
3. Gasoline Heater (in the rear engine compartment) – I don’t know much about this…
