This road trip machine may be the perfect vehicle for you.
Few vehicles are more iconic and symbolic of personal freedom than the Volkswagen bus in the automotive world. These vans showed the world that the age-old tradition of nomadic travel could still be accomplished in the modern world. Essentially the vehicles allowed more people to enjoy the hippie lifestyle and follow their dreams across the globe. This particular vehicle is from the early 1970s, which was a time primarily known for its financial downfall and high gas prices. These hardships lead to even more emphasis on independence and defiance within the hippie culture. That’s why vans like this are so incredibly iconic and why you should consider this one for your next automotive purchase.
The vehicle in question is a 1974 Volkswagen Westfalia, seemingly coated in a smooth orange/brown metallic paint. As far as exterior quality goes, this bus must be one of the best of its kind as there are no visible scratches or dents on the body. This combines with the undercarriage, which shows minimal rust and dirt to make a vehicle that will be good for years to come. All of this is well and good, but the exterior quality is not usually the central selling point for these cars. Rather than the title goes to the interior, which is typically spacious and comfortable enough for multiple people.
This Volkswagen is no exception to that rule, as the inside feathers have plenty of room for as many friends as your heart desires. Comfort and even luxury seem to have been the focus when designing this bus as a luscious seating arrangement coats the rear and side of the cabin. This vehicle was made for long road trips and camping as it also has a couple of hefty speakers on the bottom of the rear seats. This lets you crank up the tunes and drive wherever you like, with your pals blasting Jimi Hendrix.
This car and many other unique vehicles, automobilia and motorcycles will be sold at the Lucky Collector Car Auction in Tacoma, Washington. Bid online, phone and in person June 4th and 5th. Register to bid here.
