Second Owner for 45 years - ORIGINAL PAINT
GERMAN 1961 TYPE 2 TRANSPORTER 87,000 original miles
I bought this bus from the German couple who bought it new when they moved to the United States.
The vehicle has been in Southern California and Arizona since new.
Never crashed and all doors, glass, hinges and handles are original.
The photos show the perfect body panel gaps.
The trail light assembly was change to the larger units (1962) for safety.
I have the original owners manual and service book and original jack, lug wrench and tool kit.

The bus just needs paint and seals and gaskets. As you can probably tell, this bus has been my pride and joy most of my life. I will be 70 years old next year and ready to let someone else enjoy it. Iíve had probably 6 busses in years past and can tell you that the Corvair power train is the best thing you can do for the driveability.
