1964 Original Paint Mouse Gray Standard Walk Thru   Price: $24,500 OBO
1964 Split window walk through bus with original mouse grey paint and nearly rust free.

This bus is very clean underneath. Buy one of those rare buses that needs very little metal work.

Bus has been in storage in dry Arizona for at least the last 20 years. I pulled it out and got it back on the road recently. The bus was very original and unmolested, with all stock wiring in place, still 6V (now converted, but easily converted back). I found while going through everything that many parts, such as the flexible brake lines, appeared to be original factory parts (original ATE lines, etc.)

New parts include:
Master Cylinder (with original reservoir)
6 wheel cylinders
brake shoes
4 flexible brake lines
front wheel bearing
2 new seat belts up front and 3 new seat belts in back
all shift bushings and shift rod tube seals
5 powder coated 14" rims and new tires
front seats recovered with original style upholstery (TMI covers and Wolfsburg West horsehair pads)
front emblem
front turn signal lenses and rubber
4 shocks
two tie rod ends with new boots on the other two originals that were still tight
battery (was new in 2002 and never used and after charging has been working great)
ignition switch
speedometer cable
gas cap
fuel tank in tank filter
all fuel line
nose cone mount

I've recently bought a bunch more parts for the bus, including much of the door and window rubber.

With the bus being so original, the goal was to make it reliable without doing any irreversible harm to the originality. Much spray paint was removed (with some, such as along the front nose that has been removed since the photos were taken), the paint lightly polished without taking too much off, plenty left to work with further.

The brakes were gone through completely, with the hard lines and drums the only parts retained.

Gas tank was removed, rinsed out (seemed clean and debris free inside). Sending unit is dated 1964. Gauge is not working, but I haven't done any troubleshooting. New fuel line and in tank filter installed.

The transmission was removed so that the shift linkage could be removed. The entire shift linkage was cleaned and refurbished, with all new seals and bushings installed. The nose cone mount was replaced before replacing the transmission.

The tires and shocks were replaced, and any front end parts needing work replaced. The front suspension and bearings were all greased.

The bus drives great, the shifter is tight, the steering responsive, and the transmission does not pop out of any gears. It is running a 1600cc engine.

The bus has recently driven to California from Phoenix and back and is currently driven daily.

All of the glass appears to be original and in good shape other than the windshields, which were replaced at some point.

The bus still has the original tar boards over the engine, the panel over the engine compartment, and the side panels in the luggage area. The bus includes a back seat and original front and rear floor mats.

There has been no metal work done to the bus. There is some poorly applied bondo applied to some light creases that I plan to remove somehow. The bus is original paint except for a few touch up spots to protect the metal (paint is good enough quality to protect, but should be easy to remove if needed). The driver's door, cargo doors, gas door, and deck lid are not original paint.

The under side of the bus was originally undercoated. Where the undercoating is peeling, there is beautiful, shiny original mouse gray paint. The only rust of consequence I've seen is a small spot on the original battery tray, a spot on the passenger side rocker, and two localized spots on each side of the front floor. I have new metal for the front floors and will be repairing those soon. The frame, outriggers, dog legs, jack points, driver's side rocker, area behind the front wheels, etc. are all clean and solid.

Hoping to find the bus a home with someone who appreciates how clean and original the bus is who will get the paint touched up right, but retain the original paint.

Feel free to make an offer. The rack shown in some photos is not included, it was just used temporarily from one of my other buses.
