Our St Louis Showroom is proud to offer this 1978 Volkswagen Transporter Van for sale. This '78 VW Bus has been owned by the same owner for 10 years. In that time he has enjoyed driving it and repairing parts when they wear out. It is powered by a freshly rebuilt 1600cc 4-cylinder boxer engine backed by a 4-speed manual transmission. The engine has just 2,000 miles on it since the complete rebuild. The Van was also recently painted on the lower green portion and some light rust was repaired to get the body back to its former glory. Inside are several boxes full of new interior parts that could be installed to take this bus build to the next level. This van gets tons of attention and runs and drives great. The classic Transporter is reliable enough to be a daily driver and would be a blast on weekend trips or vacations. Hit the highway and see it all in this fun and practical VW Bus!

This 1987 Volkswagen transporter can be seen in great detail including 100+ HD Pictures and an HD video at For additional information please call our knowledgeable staff at (618)271-300 or email us at . The St Louis showroom is located at 1237 Central Park Drive, O'fallon Illinois 62269.
