1964 Volkswagen Type II 13 Window Deluxe
Odometer reads 91,963
** HOWEVER, the bus has only 1,963 miles on complete restoration.
Just off an extensive 3 year cosmetic and mechanical restoration, this bus is resplendent!
Finished in it's original colors of sealing wax and beige grey it evokes thoughts of yesteryear.
Yet with a completly updated drive train, suspension and braking system it brings it up to more modern driving standards. Making for a much safer and more comfortable cruising experience.
Combine that with the one off, full blown, custom hippie inspired interior, replete with top of the line materials and high end audio and video systems and you have one sensational piece of vintage rolling art
Starting off with a very solid two owner chassis originally from california and with a clean title, this bus was stripped down to its bare metal bones and found to have very little accident damage and mostly rust free. The original floors and belly pans are in excellent condition. Outriggers, jack points, doglegs, chassis are all rust free and solid.
The exterior was sprayed using a ppg base coat clear paint system, including the engine compartment and wheel wells, in the original sealing wax color. All of which was then color sanded and buffed out to give it an amazing shine and depth.
The interior was sprayed in
the original beige grey throughout and is impeccable.
The undercarriage is finished off
in grey epoxy.
Wolgang stainless steel safari windows were added front and back.
Most of the hard to find original trim was either rechromed or polished ensuring a much better fit and finish than aftermarket pieces. Add to this all the original side and cab glass was kept and new rubber seals throughout, to include all the doors as well.
Topping off the exterior,literally, is a custom made 5 bow roof rack with beautifully finished wood slats.
The interior really must be experienced to fully appreciate the melding of such uncommon things as sewn coffee sacks which make up the headliner, or old barn wood repurposed for the flooring in the rear compartment. An Indian Kantha quilt was used to create the side curtains, while you have serape blanket and faux giraffe inspired coverings on the rear L shaped seat that doubles as a pull out full size bed!
The doors, interior walls and toe kick are covered in an embossed paisley leatherette.
The high end entertainment
system is comprised of an alpine head unit incorporating blue tooth and pandora. A 13 inch drop down monitor, dual arc audio amps, 6 focal speakers and 2 image dynamics subwoofers come together for an impressive audio/visual experience.
The chassis and drivetrain was treated to the same level of enthusiasm as the rest of this magnificent creation. Starting in the front with a cb performance 4 inch narrowed and adjustable beam including drop spindles and disc brakes. New tie rods, bushings steering dampener, shocks, hoses, master cylinder, etc.
Moving to the rear there is a type 1 transmission with a butcher shop straight axle kit with clearance spring plates.
This bus will easily cruise beyond 80 mph with the help of the german cased dual carbed 1776 motor.
Professionally assembled with all new parts including crank, cam, oil pump, pistons and cylinders, lifters, bearings, etc. finished off with powder coated engine tins.
The electrical system has been brought up to modern 12 volt standards, including a new wiring works harness, 12v alternator, battery and full 12v lighting.
With it's incredible lowered stance and freshness of restoration
This transporter is ready to carry it's new owners away
