It will sell & someone will fix, I had one of those in the 80's, traded it for a vw convertible because what's a bus going to be worth in the future.... The vert has held steady at $3500, bus would be a $35k one at least. I can't even afford a regular bus, sometimes you can get a cool top cut off & marry it to a reg bus... that's what I would do... Corvair engine & disk brakes tho....

That's what someone will probably do with this one. Kinda like buying a junk 914/6 and "convert" a /4 into a /6.

23 window about the same as a 356 preA.

21 window buses are a bit cheaper.

You can buy a repro 21/23 window roof kit for $5000.

That's a rough one for sure, but given the value of the rare 23-window bus, what are the going rates? Can you find a better one for less than $10k?

Kindig It Design grafted a 21 window top onto a regular bus base. Restored and customized, it went for over $200k recently at a BarretJackson auction. VW buses, old ones, in any kind of condition have some legs.

It was a very cool and nice bus if that's any consolation.....
