'74/'75/'76

It can only be one of 3 years... 1974. 1975 or 1976.

Not '73 as it has no fuel flap from memory, and not '77 or later as it has early hinges on the engine lid. :033:

I could narrow it down even further to either '74 or '75/'76 if I could remember what the steering column loooked like on the on the one in the movie. :Drogar-Smile(LBG): :Drogar-Sick(LBG):

Cheers!

I found this useless trivia facts about the movie, says they used 5 different buses for the movie:
Originally written as an East Coast roadtrip movie from Maryland to Florida, it was shifted to a journey from New Mexico to California due to shooting issues.
The role of the suicidal uncle was originally written for Bill Murray, the studios wanted Robin Williams, but eventually went for Steve Carell. (o man Bill Murray would've been good!  :003: )
Five identical Volkswagen Type 2s were used during filming.  :007:
The movie was shot in sequence.
Uncle Frank's full name was not mentioned in the film, but at the beginning, the name "Dr. Greenburg" can be seen on his hospital door.
Script was purchased from first time screenwriter, Michael Arndt, for $250,000.
No filming was done in New Mexico; the Albuquerque scenes were actually shot in southern California. This explains why the family eats take-out chicken in a bucket from Dinah's Family Restaurant, located in Los Angeles.
In another dining scene, the family looks at menus from Pann's, a well-known family restaurant not far from Los Angeles International Airport. However, the scene actually was shot in another restaurant, not the real Pann's.
The scenes that took place in Redondo Beach, California were actually filmed in Ventura, California. There are no freeways that lead to the beach.
Many of the freeway scenes were filmed on California State Route 14.
The scene in the gas station was filmed in the Chevron station on Lyons Road in Santa Clarita, California.
Although known to Comedy Central viewers for many years as a correspondent on the high-rated satirical news program The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Steve Carell, at the time he was cast for Little Miss Sunshine, was a relative unknown in Hollywood. According to an article in Entertainment Weekly,[11] the producers of the film worried that he wasn't a big enough star and didn't have much acting experience. However, between the time the film was shot in the summer of 2005 and its release in the summer of 2006, Carell became a huge success as the star of the high-grossing film The 40-Year-Old Virgin in August 2005 and the leading character of the popular NBC Emmy-winning telvision series The Office, which premiered in March 2005 and for which Carell won a Golden Globe in 2006 for best lead actor in a comedy television series. In the span of just one year, Carell had become such a star that the producers had gone from protesting his casting to tapping him to do prominent promotion for the film.
All the girls acting as participants in the beauty pageant, except Abigail Breslin, were veterans of real beauty pageants. They looked the same and performed the same acts as they had in their real-life pageants.[12]
Greg Kinnear and Paul Dano also star in the 2006 movie adaptation of Eric Schlosser's Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal.
On July 25, 2006 Fox Searchlight Pictures invited VW bus owners to a screening of Little Miss Sunshine at Vineland Drive-In theater in City of Industry, California. 65 VW buses were present at the event.[13]  :038:
The license plate of Frank's academic and romantic rival, Larry Sugarman (the #2 Proust scholar), reads "lost time", a reference to Marcel Proust's principal novel À la recherche du temps perdu or In Search of Lost Time.
Inside the convenience store, the price of Frank's slurpee and the pornographic magazines came to a total of $19.79. Directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris had previously directed the "1979" music video by The Smashing Pumpkins.
Bryan Cranston's character in Little Miss Sunshine has the same name - Stan Grossman - as Larry Brandenburg's character in the film Fargo.
Paul Dano's character has the same given name - Dwayne - as one of the main characters in the Kurt Vonnegut novel Breakfast of Champions; in addition, the referenced main character has the family name "Hoover."
