Description

Lot #510 - One-of-a-kind custom bus finished in Sunset Bronze Mica with custom color matched bumpers, vintage roof rack and 15" polished Porsche alloy wheels. Built as a Volkswagen Resto-Mod, this bus features many of its classic 1968 parts with a more modern custom appearance. The modern paint color and lowered stance adds a whole new style combining the classic hippie look of the '70s and the modern yuppie style of today. The customization flows from the outside to the interior utilizing the classic bucket seats upholstered in contemporary style materials. The rear bench seats have been replaced with a wraparound lounge style couch and plush carpeting. This unique automobile is powered by a factory German 1,600cc 4 cylinder engine and a smooth shifting 4-speed Freeway Flyer transmission.
