About 2 years ago I purchased a 1969 Bus for $200. Someone had turned the
thing into an art car, and had abandoned it when its engine threw a rod.
I'm slowly restoring it back to original condition, and plan to build up
an engine for it. The engine that was in it was a real frankenstein. It
contained parts from at least 4 or 5 different models of VW engines. The
only reason I bought the thing with a DOA engine was the condition of the
body. Other than the typical rust found around the windshield and rusted
out front floor panels, the body is in great shape.
