1963 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon Micro Bus, Transporter, Safari, Kombi,1963 VW Split Window Bus.
These classic bus’s are highly collectable and sought after in todays collector car market place.
My Bus is a Original / Custom build with less than 9000 miles.
It has the best of both worlds.
It has all of the Original Classic details but with just enough customizing & modern updates needed to make it stand out & be driven on the roads and highways today.
My bus is not a trailer queen but a bus that you can drive everyday if you elect to and also a bus that you could drive across country on any given day.
It's been an adult owned bus most of it's life, i'm in my 50's, the gentleman that i bought it from is in his 40's.
It is a solid New Mexico/Texas Bus that is virtually rust free.
I have lots of documentation/receipts on the restoration.
It has both the Delux package and the Safari package added.
It has the rare small rear safari window vs the larger fixed window.
Two Tone Deluxe Paint in Black Metallic & Silver Metallic.
Since it is a driver i would rate the paint at a 7 out of 10. It looks great and does well at car shows & cruises but does have some imperfections.
