1965 Volkswagen Bus EZ Camper

$_4 (1)
Our last visit into VW Bus-land was with a couple of extreme restomods much more focused on looks than function. Today’s is just as gorgeous but a bit more original. Inside and out it appears like-new, but the dark green and white combo keeps it from looking too much like an overdone toy. It also comes with the EZ Camper package, making it the perfect machine for roadtrips or, as the seller aptly cites, concerts. It may not have quite the usability of the T3 Westies I so often feature here, but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be a huge amount of fun. 60s Buses are going for crazy money these days so you’ll have to decide if the classic VW Van is worth that much to you. If it is, this is the one I’d go for.

If it were my $40-50k, I’d probably move on to the more modern T3 Westy, perhaps even with Syncro, but there is something about these T1s that attracts crowds, thumbs up, and smiles anywhere you go. From the color to the overall package it’s just about perfect – just don’t spend too much time worrying about the massively anachronistic, large-screened stereo/DVD/nav system or cliché peace sign. At least they can be hidden? Whatever rich old Deadhead buys this is going to get one heck of a Bus and be living an old but nice dream.

  1. I love it! The perfect van for a nice road trip to Chicago to see the final three shows by the remaining memeber of the Grateful Dead this summer. Its just not a $30k plus vehicle to me.

  2. Today I drove past a parked very late year maroon carat. It was kept up ok, but just barely. Must’ve been very nice when new. Nice alloys.

  3. Had a ’67 21 window with a tin top camper interior I transplanted into it. Absolutely beautiful vehicle. This was in the early eighties. I sold it for six thousand dollars and thought that was good money for the condition it was in. Absolutely worth it. What has changed? Passage of time, increased amounts of money in certain people’s pockets and the consequent irrational increase to absurd heights in asking prices. Bottom line, while this is a beautiful bus looking at the pictures, folks have lost their minds in valuing busses.
