1965 Standard, 1900cc, Freeway Flyer, Disk Brakes   Price: $33500
Unfortunately working abroad has made it impractical for me to continue holding on to my bus. I have owned it since 2005 and replaced virtually all of the mechanical and electrical components during that time. When I bought the bus I installed a new 1900cc dual port engine, a freshly rebuilt freeway flyer transmission, redid the brakes and installed new brake lines, had the speedometer rebuilt and replaced the speedo cable, replaced all of the rusty metal (there wasn't much to begin with), touched up the paint, and added an external oil cooler and filter.

In 2015 I replaced the tires, added KYB shock absorbers and replaced the entire wiring harness with a factory color coded harness from Wolfsuburg West and installed an electronic ignition. In 2016 I replaced the entire front end with a Wagonswest stock height complete front end with a dual circuit master cylinder and disk brakes. I also replaced the steering box and steering wheel. This bus drives as smooth as a VW could, and stops on a dime.

There is a replacement radio with an external input in the original radio space on the dash, and the original comes with the bus. All of the panels are covered in sound deadening material, and there is a double layer over the engine compartment. I have put less than 10k on the new engine since installing it, and only several hundred miles since the complete front end replacement. I have taken the bus on 2 cross country road trips, it performed flawlessly and can cruise at 65 all day.

Feel free to contact me for any questions or if you would like more pictures. Delivery is possible to serious buyers.
