1965 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon Deluxe

This is a very solid 13 Window Deluxe, with the desirable Velvet Green/Blue White paint combination M Code. It has a lot of the original metal and was not your usual rusty bus. Produced in Germany in September 1964 it was originally imported through New York and sold to a gentleman in Virginia, who keep it garaged and well cared for. It comes with nearly all the parts to complete the project. There are several boxes full of the parts taken off the bus, or replaced with new ones, like a full set of new rubbers. It also comes with three rows of seats, the jailbars, deluxe belt line trim, Kienzle clock.
The original doors, doglegs, rear hatch, engine lid, window frames and pop out frames, cargo floor area, parcel shelf etc. are rock solid. It is almost ready for painting, but does still need some body work to the rear passenger quarter by the gas tank flap. The engine apron is a new part. The bumpers are solid including a hard to find rear pointed bumper.
The brake lines, brake cylinders and shoes have been replaced. The transmission fluid changed and axle boots replaced. I replaced the rear trans mounts, but it still needs the front trans mount replaced. I include a new one. The engine is a running 1600cc single port, with 12v electrics. The suspension is still stock and at the original height. Steering box is tight.
I have owned the bus since 2015 and have a clear Florida title in my name. Please contact me if you have any questions, or wish to inspect the vehicle.
