1965 German VW Split Window Bus with a Mid Engine 350 V8 and Automatic Transmission.
These German classic bus’s are highly collectable and sought after in todays collector car market. I had a professional appraisal done by a 30 year veteran classic vehicle appraiser on October 2nd 2020. It appraised for $67,500.00.I am asking $64,500 Neg.
My Bus is an Original & Custom build (Restomod) with approximately 30k miles since restored.
It has the best of both worlds. If you want something unique & one of a kind this is it.
It has all of the Original Classic details of a 65 Splitty but with just enough customizing and modern updates needed to make it stand out and be able to drive on the roads and highways today. My bus attracts attention everywhere we go in it.
My bus is not a trailer queen but a bus that you can show, go on cruises, drive everyday if you elect to and also a bus that you could drive across country on any given day. It is very reliable.
Two Tone Deluxe highly desirable paint in Bright Red & Black.
Since it is a driver, i would rate the paint at a 6/7 out of 10. It looks great and does well at car shows & cruises but does have some imperfections, a few small dents, small rock chips and a few spots of surface rust.
