When looking to purchase a vehicle everyone wants something unique from the other vehicles out there. This one owner VW Campmobile with the rare conversion by Sportmobile out of Andrews, IN fits the need to perfection. This fantastic VW was delivered new in March of 1975 to Mrs. Murrel Williams out of Clinton OH by the Autobahn VW dealership which it remained in her ownership until recently acquired by us. With all originality still intact of this Type 2 bus, we only see strong upside to the next owner. Vehicle has been meticulously maintained by the previous owner and we have service records and dealer stamps in the Maintaince log starting from the first oil change with 3,300 miles on the vehicle to a recent service performed just 400 miles ago. Vehicle retains all original books, bill of sale, and operating manual from Sportmobile.

The features, accessories, and equipment that is on this rare VW is quite astounding and one that would not be able to be replicated at any reasonable cost. On first view you see a very clean, rust free example of a VW bus painted in Pastell White with the uncommon Gala Red bold pin stripe that wraps around the entire bus. Then as you continue to look closer and start to appreciate the beauty of this bus you start to see the fantastic features that are hardly seen on a 39 year old vehicle. You will notice the great accessories that were added by the conversion company such as; Chrome Luggage Rack, European Fog lights, Oversized Camping Mirrors, CB Radio with dual Antennas, Chrome Half Moon Hubcaps, Passenger Running Board, 110v Electrical outlets, Leather Wrapped Steering Wheel, Trailer Hitch, and other fine appointments. Further you will notice the heavy shag carpet that covers many aspects of the vehicle along with the leather wrapped headliner. Vinyl front seats are in superb condition along with the rust free floor that has custom made rubber flooring. In the back there is very nice appointed seats that retain the original leather bench with camping stool. Working sink and ice chest are in great shape along with all flip up dining table and extended table tops. This VW also retains the original cabinets with lots of storage space.

With the vertical pop-top on this camper gives you the maximum space compared to the factory edition and became such a popular choice that this option still remains a strong seller for newer conversion companies to maximize the living space of any camper vehicle. With very little effort this bus transforms from a fun bus to a luxurious Penthouse setup and the ability to pick up a sleepy quarters for two people to sleep comfortable as well as two additional people to sleep on the fold down main floor coach. All netting and canvas is in remarkable condition and truly allows this vehicle to become much more than transportation. Take it to the local campsite, tailgate party or road trip and you are destined to become the most popular camper in the area, no question about it.

This VW is powered by the original 4cyl with dual Solex Carburetors and matted to a strong and dependable 4-speed manual transmission with a newer clutch and flywheel. Dealer installed gauge package include a Battery Meter, Oil Pressure, and Water Temperature Gauges that all function properly and allow you to monitor this buses functions. With an impressive 65HP and a sprinting 0-60 time of just under 24 seconds, this is a true experience like no other.

This bus is strongly encouraged for anyone that is either looking for a rock solid investment or a person that appreciates something that not anyone else has and wants to stand above the crowd and be the leader of the group, not a follower.
