Are you an Oregon student looking to cajole Bill Walton into smoking weed with you come college hoops season? If so, you can probably lock down that bucket list dream by dropping $8,500 for this sweet 1977 Volkswagen Transporter outfitted in that Oregon green and yellow.
According to the seller, the VW was professionally painted while his son was attending the university so clearly these two are diehards. Why it’s being sold now hasn’t been specified, but it appears to be sound mechanically — the van allegedly made a road trip down to Southern California without issue recently.
From the ad:
This is a great bus and a real attention getter! Daily driver! All mechanics are original. Engine has been rebuilt including all new pistons, cylinders and cylinder heads, push rods and seals. Replaced fuel lines, fuel injectors, fuel filter, starter, spark plugs, and battery. Alternator replaced in 2016. Replaced clutch, clutch cable, and shift coupler. New tires, (and tire chains for the snow). Repainted by a professional body shop. All window rubber seals replaced except driver’s side window and vent and passenger side window and vent. Engine seal replaced. Regularly maintained. Just drove it home from Southern California–60 to 65mph no problem. Passed California smog in November 2017. Clean title and registration. Great fun to drive!! Gas gage and odometer do not work. Estimate mileage at about 170,000 miles. Small ding by rear left taillight, but all lights function properly. We are avid Ducks fans and painted up this bus while my son was attending U of O.
Go ahead and shoot the seller an email if this is the Oregon hippie van of your dreams. And don’t forget to haggle a little bit! There should be a reduction of some sort with that taillight damage.
