1964 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon



This is a VERY BEAUTIFUL and VERY ORIGINAL VW CAMPER KOMBI Bus manufactured in Germany.I purchased this bus as a project in late 2016. It took me three years to find all original parts, manage restoration work and to bring this beauty back to its glory.Finest materials were used. See all the details in the photos.It also hasa lot of hard to find and rare original featuressuch as the original curtains (mustard yellow and brown), all original bumpers, the original roof rack and theWestfalia camper interior. Currently registered and AllDMV fees paidtill Dec 2019. It's an Original California Car. I kept it stored in my garage in between all restoration work. I put a lot of time and way too much money into this project that I was planning to keep for myself. I need the money and I am willing to pass this dreamcar on.
Please see all photos and the video for details(Link to video on third photo).

Some of the original Westfalia camper parts were in the bus. I collected all other parts over time. The upholsterer refurbished some of the cabinets and completely builtwhat was not worth restoring.
