This iconic VW van is like stepping into a time machine. Back to the far out days of disco and bell-bottoms; this van does not disappoint and brings with it the nostalgia of days gone by. Complete with brown plaid upholstered rear seats, brown/tan exterior and interior, this van is perfect for anyone wanting to step back into another era.


This van comes from the collection of Paul Walker of Fast and the Furious fame. Better well known for his fast European automobiles, American muscle cars, and his association with AE Performance (auto speed shop), Walker also has a love for cars that serve a double purpose. This van is not only stylin? on the outside, but it also has a camper package with a stove, sink, refrigerator, pop-up roof, and multiple sleeping areas. Take this van on a relaxing trip and enjoy peace, love, and granola. Can you dig it?
