If you like the thought of a classic Volkswagen Bus but hoped to find one that has been upgraded, MotoeXotica Classic Cars has the Loaf for you in this 1979 Volkswagen Bus, which was the final model year for the bus in the United States. It resided in Florida for the past decade with the same loving owner
Finished with a white roof over Reef Blue, the vans paint and trim are in overall excellent condition. This is a Californiastyle Custom Cruiser, with a lowered stance, Wildwood front disc brakes and rear air shock suspension.
The bodywork on this van is straight and solid, its engine bay is extremely tidy, the white bumpers are in excellent order, and the cargo area is in satisfactory order. This Loaf rides on Continental radials, size 155/60R15 in front and 195/65R15 in rear. Each tire surrounds a Fuchs alloy wheel. The tires are in excellent condition while the Porschestyle Fuchs wheels present very well.
Out back, a stout 2.3L flat fourcylinder engine with dual Weber carburetors, other updated performance modifications and custom exhaust replaces the factory 2L flat fourcylinder. Buttoned to that motor is a fourspeed manual transmission.
Inside, the van shows a fresh interior, which will seat up to nine people. The front buckets and two bench seats all look great. Instead of carpet, the floors have been treated to an application of bed liner material for protection. The white headliner is in great shape, as is the twospoke steering wheel. The inner door panels and instrument panel are in satisfactory order. The dash contains an array of VDO gauges from a Porsche. The tachometer, odometer and oil/temp gauge are inoperative. Capping off the interior are wooden storage trays under the dash and a JVC AM/FM stereo with CD player.
Competition to this VW in 1979 included Chevrolets G10 Van, Dodges BSeries Ram Van, Fords Econoline Van and GMCs VanDura.
