The Beginning, Part Three

after the Greensboro VW show, I saw on craigslist:

1978 VW Camper Campmobile, not Westy – $1200

I the cow spots! (I found out later – this week – that the bus was to be a bull. I was contacted by a previous My wife wasn’t too keen on but we decided to contact the owner.

I be interested in seeing your ’78 Is it still available? And if so, what are best for you? I live in Springs, but work in Cary, so you that far from me. Also, do you if this is a Sportsmobile conversion? It of looks like it is from the I think my wife and I would to see the van sometime this week if I will talk to her again about it. Also, can you tell me how miles are on the van, if you know? How owners (again, if you know)? Any of the van? How long has it been Any maintenance receipts? And, do you any other interior pics you email me? Sorry for all the questions…I am in the of trying to convince my wife….she a more “finished” vehicle, but I like a challenge, and something character. The cow spots definitely my eye! Don’t know if she want to keep those…




The van is available. I am unsure about the though. I am not that familiar the transporters, I know more Beetles. I myself also in Cary and would be able to you any day this week around 5pm or where the van is located in Clayton. If you can not it this week, I would no problem meeting with you weekend. I am very sorry but I do not the history of the van other than it was bought by the state of California for the of parks and recreation. The owner me said the owner before him may been the second or third so this would make me the or fifth if

that is correct information. is of course way up there, I believe it is in the of 156K but I am unsure of this. I apologize for only having one pic of the van. I can tell you that it is a bit most of the interior would to be replaced if you were going for otherwise if you just wanted to it up a bit to use it I think that would be a The van has been sitting for almost a now. I had intentions of restoring it but have had neither the time nor the to put the van to do so. You mentioned you wanted a bit of a challenge, van is definitely that. It is by no means a vehicle and will
require some time and if you were looking to restore it, but if you are to hurry and get something on the road to then it shouldn’t be too difficult!

Thanks again for the questions and when you decide on a day to see the van, let me


So we went to Eagle in Clayton and met the owner. We were surprised by the condition of the bus. It was a rough, but no real rust to of – except the battery tray is a common bus area to rust. The taillight area was crushed in We talked it over that at dinner, and decided to buy it. The final was stuck for $850. My neighbor the street helped me haul it on a Saturday – Feb. 3, 2007.

The original owners manual and maintenance manual were still the bus, which was indeed a conversion. The bus was purchased March 1979 from Oliver in Vallejo, California. The maintenance in the manual was date stamped up 45,000 miles:
