BB Bus for sale! ('76 bus)

Post by EngineerMaxwell » Tue Jul 30, 2019 8:43 pm

Times are tough. Sacrifices have already been made in an attempt to hold on to this bus, but I'm at the end of the line and it has to go. I already have seller's remorse. But enough of the crying.
Here are the details:

1976; stock fuel-injected 2.0l (currently not running...see below); stock 091 trans (rebuilt ~3k miles ago); rusted rockers, quarter panels, battery tray, bottom cargo floor at walk-through, and some pinholes under the windshield; I have the middle bench; headliner is present, but needs replacing; tachometer installed; speedometer very accurate at speeds >10mph (it floats when <10mph); What am I forgetting?

I seriously had the engine dialed in and ready to pass legit smog test. Elatedly drove it for 65 miles. Then I lose power, limp home and discover burnt valve. So, it needs a valve job, cylinders honed, and new rings. Some engine hoses need replacing. See pics below.

It is currently loaded with construction materials, making for not-so-optimal current interior shots. Imagine some 'patina' on those 3-4 pics of the interior to get an idea of where it's at now.

And most importantly: I want $50k for it, feeeel that it would be $10k if it were running, but am asking $8500 for it.
Only serious buyers need inquire :thumbleft:

A tired runner is fetching $7,700.00. A not-running is going to be less.
Fix it. Drive it. Fix it up. Then it is worth $32,800.67
