1961 Deluxe Sunroof Bus, CA OG Paint REDUCED!   Price: $120,000
For your consideration, 1961 Super Deluxe Sunroof Bus.

This is a pretty rare bus delivered to Palo Alto, Ca. (Mozart VW) back in 1961. The bus still has about 90% of its original paint in place. The interior and roof are og paint. The outside has a few touch ups in places, but majority is original paint. The bus has spent its entire life here in California since purchased. THEREFORE, NO RUST!!

The bus has been featured in Hot VW and had a great and informative write up by LA VW Expert, Rich Kimbel. The 1st and 2nd owners maintained the bus in perfect condition with tons of receipts. They even have the original purchase order from Mozart VW.

The current and 3rd owner is a VW repair shop owner with over 43 years at his current shop here in Southern California. After taking ownsfership, he decided to up grade the bus with a few new features. First he had Lenny, at West Coast Classics, install a new headliner and recover the front seat which were in need repair. He then rebuilt a new 1600 Dual Port engine to give some additional power. The original 40 HP engine is still in his possession and will go with the bus upon sale. The entire bus was gone through to evaluate and repair all aspects of the bus to ensure a great ride. This bus is a smooth as silk, run and shift smoothly and has plenty of power.

Here is a list of other features.
