“Here is a gorgeous Sealing Wax Red and Beige Grey 1964 Volkswagen 21 Window Double Door Deluxe Sunroof Microbus that has seen a top shelf professional restoration by one of the premier Bus specialty shops in the United States and is very faithful to the original specifications throughout. This Bus was special ordered back in 1964 and features a fairly wild combination of original options, most notably the rare factory “double door” option which refers to the side cargo area doors on both sides of the Bus, the factory original safari windshields that swing upward for a dose of fresh air, and the desirable feature of 6 side popout windows as well. It is important to note that this is a genuine factory double door 21 Window Deluxe as well as a factory safari windowed Bus, and the Birth Certificate direct from Volkswagen of Germany confirms its authenticity. Other critical details to note include the mega-rare, original, and double-door-specific “double flipper” middle seat which refers to the backrest having a folding portion on both sides to allow passengers easy access to the rear seat. The large sliding sunroof is also factory fitment for this “top of the line” Deluxe Microbus. Additionally the mechanical details of the Bus are correct including the proper 1500cc engine, the fully synchronized reduction box transaxle, and the electrical system has been upgraded to 12 volts for quicker starting and brighter lights, too.”
I’m trying to think what else I would buy for $149K. A lot of Porsches, thanks for the obvious. But seriously, as a collector there are appreciating assets everywhere. Is this the one to bank on? The exterior is quite gorgeous as I can appreciate buses from this era. But the interior is so academic. The fun side of buses for me is having a little fort inside complete with bed, kitchenette, living area and Grateful-Dead-freedom-wheels up underneath it. At this price even the occasional ice cream runs are severely limited. Maybe that’s why I don’t get buying restored gems and would rather have drivers that can be enjoyed without worries. That, and I can’t afford restored gems.
Offered at $149,000 on Wholesale California.
