Hoping to obtain an early model. I have discounted the price $4600 from the original purchase price. I am eager to sell...Sale Price $32,000; feel free to send me a private message if interested.

@Newbie Danny bummer about selling your Speedster. GLWTS, but since you're close-by in Nipomo you should still plan on joining us in SLO for this year's West Coast Cruise. It's a Run-What-You-Brung event so no Speedster necessary to join the shenanigans. 

Regarding VW buses, you should plan on checking out the upcoming OCTO (Orange County Transporter Organization) event in Long Beach. The event is primarily pre-67 buses (split window) and it should give you some insight on what's going on with VW buses (prices and parts availability). There are usually a couple hundred buses there in all configurations and condition, plus flea-market and various vendors. They hold this event a couple times a year.

Usually a few of us SoCal SOCers are there to check it out. You can also check out YouTube for VW OCTO. Here's a pic for visual reference of the event...12631274_228171470852872_5669120584961115597_n

I sold my bus in 2010 to buy my Speedster. I spent 12 years restoring the Westy. It was the early days of the Internet and finding missing original parts all over the World was a great part of the Adventure. Having owned many Porsches over the years my long time yearning for a Speedster needed fulfilling. I saw a nice 23 Window at Anthony's a couple of weeks ago and it all came back at least for a moment.
