For sale is my VW Camper Van. The vehicle is in excellent shape, and I think the pics speak for themselves.

A few notes:

-The paint (everything except the rear passenger side pillar) is original. I don’t think you’ll find a nicer original-paint bus anywhere on this island. I took these pictures on a cloudy day, but if you notice how reflective the paint is, you’ll get a sense of how nice it is.

-The interior (other than the front seats, which have been reupholstered) is original and in good shape.

-The sale includes just about all of the original accessories, including camp stool, both tables, front window child’s cot, and even a Super 6 extinguisher.

-The pop-top tent was replaced a few years ago and is in great shape. It has zip-away panels that make sleeping up top extremely comfortable.

-The body (and the undercarriage) is almost entirely rust free. The worst area is the top rear side (under the camper top). I’ve included a picture of this spot (it’s the last pic).

-One of the best features of this vehicle is the rebuilt engine, which was built by Jake Raby of Raby’s Aircooled Technology. The engine is called a Camper Special (http://www.aircooledtechnology.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=56&Itemid=76) . It’s a much more powerful and dependable engine built specifically for VW campers. You can cruise on the H-1 at 75 or accelerate while climbing over the Pali. If you don’t know about Jake, do a search for his name on The Samba. His engines are top notch, and this one has just about 12K miles on it. It will run for as long as you take care of it. If you look at the pricing tab in the link above, you’ll see that these engines are not cheap. I have the engine manual (from Raby) that includes all the information from the Dyno testing, basic engine information, and maintenance instructions.

If you want to come and take a look at it or if you want to email me with questions, please feel free to do so, but please, serious inquiries only.
