More Details & Pictures
1978 Volkswagen Riviera Camper. I am the second owner of this bus since it was purchased by a family friend in 1979, I bought it from them about 7 years ago. Since then I have meticulously poured over this vehicle, I would confidently say that it is one of the best VW buses around.
I have service records dating back to 1990, I have the business card from the salesman at the VW dealer ship from 1979, original sales pamphlet from the Riviera line as well as all records since. The bus has about 122,000 original miles, paint is original with no bondo anywhere. It has an automatic transmission that is both rare and a joy to drive. It has a new high end stock motor and new transmission.
The interior has been re-upholstered in the original fabrics, the bus has been gone through top to bottom to drive great and be a functional daily driver or recreational vehicle. The rear bumper has been replaced with a custom made bumper that has a 2″ hitch receiver, I used this to pull a lightweight aluminum trailer with sporting equipment but can be used for a bike rack as well.
I had a custom 1 1/4″ hitch receiver made for the front of the bus which I use for a bike rack. When the bike rack is off the hitch reciever is invisible. There is an inverter to run 110 and a usb charging station that has a battery gauge. All service since being in San Luis Obispo has been done at Broad Street VPA. If you are looking to get a late model bay window that is exceptional, this van is more than worth looking at.
I have put well more than the asking price into this van and there is too much to talk about in this ad. If you are serious about purchase feel free to contact me to ask questions or to come and look at it. Thanks for looking.
