Condition: UsedA vehicle is considered used if it has been registered and issued a title. Used vehicles have had at least one previous owner. The condition of the exterior, interior and engine can vary depending on the vehicle's history. See the seller's listing for full details and description of any imperfections.Seller Notes:"This bus is used and has scratches, dents, dings, tears and other wonderful character details."

I bought this bus a few months ago as a restoration project and have just honestly lost interest. 3 businesses and 4 kids will do that. I've gotten as far as installing a new engine from West Coast Core, new exhaust, rebuilt tranny with new clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing. This bus runs and drives amazing, shifts great and stops good. About 20 miles on this new engine. 

I've also started acquiring other parts:
New front tin
New front seat covers and cushions from bus depot.com
Kick panels
The exterior has a rust thru in both front floor pans(small) and in the rear near the battery box. Both easy fixes. There is a little surface rust in other places but nothing that couldn't be sanded and painted. The windshield is solid all the way around. Good rubber under. 
The sunroof was siliconed shut when I bought it. I've removed the silicone but so far unable to free it up under its own crank. No dents or excessive rust on the roof though so should just be a mechanical issue with the crank itself. 
I kept the old engine and will be part of your purchase as well as all parts. The interior is not terrible but will need a new headliner for sure. The liner on the sunroof appears to be in real good shape and may just need a good cleaning. 
Please email with any questions and I'll try to answer as quickly as possible. 

Thanks for bidding and I'm certain someone who loves these VW's will enjoy finishing this one up.

Volkswagen's De Silva says next Scirocco will be 'completely different'

Tue, 02 Apr 2013 14:14:00 EST

From our perspective, the reborn Volkswagen Scirocco is a handsome (if squat) little thing. Yet design-wise, it's always struck us as uncomfortably close to the Golf three-door hatchback with which it shares its basic underpinnings. That aesthetic kinship may be part of the reason why Volkswagen has steadfastly refused to import the Scirocco to North America, seeing as how the Golf doesn't regularly set the company's sales charts alight, and it's less expensive.
But that visual similarity might be about to change, says Walter De Silva, who recently told Australia's Car Advice that, "It must be completely different... we don't want to repeat the bodystyle of the Scirocco, we want to change that." Further, the Volkswagen Group's design boss says that the next-generation car isn't terribly far along in development yet - "at the moment, it's only a studio [project]... it's not defined." It's probably just as well, as the new seventh-generation Golf arguably borrows some of its design from the current Scirocco anyway.
So we should expect a much bolder, more differentiated design, right? Well, yes, no and maybe. Back in September, De Silva himself was quoted as saying that the era of flamboyant styling has passed, and that future VW designs will be simpler to better reflect the times and preserve resale value. So... how different could it be?

VW promises 7-seat CUV for America in 2016

Mon, 13 Jan 2014 08:58:00 EST

On the eve of the Detroit Auto Show, Volkswagen chief executive Martin Winterkorn has confirmed the imminent arrival of a new crossover. The model, previewed at the same show last year by the CrossBlue concept pictured here, will be unique to the North American market when it arrives here in 2016. The new three-row, seven-seat crossover is part of an ambitious expansion plan on the part of Volkswagen and Audi in North America, where the two brands aim to sell a million vehicles by 2018.
That's a mighty big increase over the 600,000 vehicles which the Volkswagen Group sold here last year, but it's moving in the right direction: That number is already a 100-percent increase of what it sold here just five years ago. At that rate, VW should have little trouble meeting its goals, particularly with the arrival of the new crossover and the introduction of Golf production at its assembly plant in Puebla, Mexico. Read the full statement below for more.
