Donning the original deluxe beltline trim running from the front V to the rear, and skirting Sealing Wax Red with Beige accenting, this fully restored Microbus is as good as it gets. Includes period-correct Safari windows that fold out and look down on the slightly curved but steep front end that sports the large VW badge and simple single headlights. Every piece of the exterior is shiny and dimple free. All 23 windows are sealed tightly and are in very nice condition. Original date coded 15-inch wheels with original and very hard to find Lemmerz trim rings and the iconic VW dog dish style wheel covers we are touring in style.
Much of the original equipment has been retained including the rare 6V ambulance fans, interior grab handles, and jail bars. This is all wrapped in showroom white inserts with white piping and gray bolsters. A ”humpback” front seat and 2 additional bench rows are on the back, as well as the second row looking upon the spare tire case wrapped in door panel with matching gray uppers and striped lower broadcloth. The floors have rubber mats over them, and if you want a real treat, lift them up and you will be met with the beautifully painted Sealing Wax Red metal. The dash, also in Sealing Wax Red has the original gauges, clean white Wolfsburg castle badged steering wheel no cracks or even marks on it, and a passenger-side clock. A full cloth interior and canvas exterior retractable sunroof is fully operational and floats forward and rearward to let the sunshine in.
A 1200 CC 4-cylinder engine fully rebuilt but not original to this bus (Original engine was replaced early on by the first owner) has a 1-barrel carburetor on top and a 4-speed manual transmission. A 4.125 rear is noted.
