SOLD!  1963 15 Window Deluxe Bus in Original Turkis and Blue White Paint!


1963 15 Window Deluxe Bus, Original Turkis and Blue White Paint!

Here's one that is hard to not fall in love with.  It's an early 1963 15 Window Deluxe Bus with beautifully sun faded original paint, complete and fully restored interior, good running stock stale air 40hp engine, and Firestone 6.40 bias ply tires mounted on original paint wheels with original trim rings.  The Bus is absolutely turnkey, rock solid, and ready to enjoy.

Some of the many features include faded original company logos, high quality and very faithfully executed interior from Lenny at West Coast Classics, being a desirable 6 popout window model, original accessory cab steps, and a original HWE full length roof rack in excellent shape as well.

The body is in excellent shape, over 95% original Turkis and Blue White paint throughout, with only a few small areas having been touched up.  The lower rearward cargo door and short rocker saw minor rust repairs and paint blending.  Additionally the paint around the rain gutters had peeled in places and surface rust started so those areas were repaired and blended very well.  Finally the Turkis on the nose has resprayed due to some unsightly stone chips.  The paint has been buffed and waxed and has a extremely cool natural fade pattern that is loved by so many purists.  I personally love naturally patinaed early Buses and you'd be hard pressed to find one with a more attractive appearance than this one.  The body is exceptionally straight, very dry, and features all of the correct doors, decklid, apron, slash cut bumpers with correct Deluxe aluminum trim, full Deluxe molding including rocker spears, etc.  It's not often that you find a 47 year old original paint Bus in this exceptional condition.

The interior has been expertly refreshed by World famous Vintage VW interior specialist, Lenny Copp of West Coast Classics in Fullerton, California.  All of the correct seats have new and accurate covers, all new "Como Green" panels, new headliner, black rubber floor mats, polished original jail bars, Deluxe rear seat luggage bar, kick panels, etc.  The uncut original paint Blue White dash is in excellent shape and features the correct Deluxe clock and a uncut radio hole although there is currently no radio installed.  Early Bus interiors are frequently a weak point but rest assured that this one is on the money and extremely faithful to the way it looked when the Bus was new back in 1963. 

Mechanically the Bus is bone stock and features a great running stale air 40hp engine, stock reduction box transaxle, and is as roadworthy as any nearly half century old Bus could be.  It made a successful trip from San Diego to the San Francisco Bay Area just a couple years back to give you an idea that it's far more than just pretty.  The Bus is currently fully turnkey and enjoyed regularly. 

This Bus is priced to sell and I'm certain will move quickly so don't miss the boat as examples like this don't come up often.  Thanks!

SOLD!
