Lot #945 - Powered by a 1,493cc overhead valve, 4 cylinder, air cooled engine rated at 53hp with a 4-speed manual transmission, torsion bar rear suspension with swing axles and hydraulic shocks, trailing arm torsion bar front suspension with hydraulic shocks and 4-wheel drum brakes. This Microbus version is a sight to behold. Finished in Velvet Green and Cumulus White, this Southern California bus has been restored to show condition. It is an original spectacular 11-window version. It sports everything one would want in a collectible classic including interesting and fun motoring, low cost to use and service, and an extremely attractive and unusual appearance. The paint and trim are both excellent. The fenders and doors show no signs of repair or rust ever. The glass appears all excellent, and the bumpers and exhaust pipes are nice as well. The body panels are original and rust-free. The interior is excellent with fabric and vinyl seats and the austere gearshift lever awaiting a drive. The engine bay is as detailed as can be and runs smoothly with that familiar "tingle" sound only a VW makes. The transmission shifts smoothly, and it handles as good as new.
