For Sale: 1975 Volkswagen Bus in Indianapolis, Indiana

Vehicle Description

This one-of-a-kind T2 Microbus is the work of Indianapolis artist Jason Rogers, who shortened the wheelbase and turned the remainder of the vehicle into a rolling canvas for his murals. The bus' Grateful Dead theme runs through the exterior and interior of the vehicle with countless unique touches, including a spectacular roof panel commemorating the group's 50th anniversary (one of the shows that the bus attended). The shortened wheelbase is the result of a bet that Rogers would not be able to cut the bus in half and have it back on the road within a week, which he won. This is an award-winning vehicle and is sure to turn heads anywhere it goes. From the vibrant colors to the 'I see you smilin'' legend in the windscreen banner, it is a testament to Rogers' goal for his work: 'It overcomes that negative vibe and just puts a smile on your face...that's what I like to do with my art.' At a show with Cheech Merin in attendance it won 'Celebrity Choice Best in Show'. Among the many other awards and distinctions it has earned was an appearance in a Mid America Motorworks calendar, and it is consistently a fan favorite at events and shows. The pricing includes additional work depending on anticipated use. The creating artist is available to either refresh or add art work (personal or company logos). There is an additional bus that was intended to be shortened and turned into a matching trailer that can be combined into the purchase. The bus has undergone a complete rewiring, engine rebuild, and overall drive-ability set up currently for light road use (please note the window tint and consult your local laws) and parade use. Trades, inspections, and test drives (with proof of funds or financing) available. Financing (US only) and shipping (world wide) available. Over 100 pictures available on our website and video available on request. (true mileage unknown)
