1960 Double Door Panel Bus, Sealing Wax Red, Nice!   Price: Sale Pending
1960 Double Door Panel Bus, Sealing Wax Red, Clean!

This very clean 1960 was restored back in 2006, was featured in HotVW's magazine in June of 2007, and was selected by Charlie Hamill to be part of his special Bus display at the VW Classic in Irvine, California in 2007. It has won many awards over the years including multiple Best Of Show, Best Vintage Aircooled, Best Engine, and more. It is much cleaner than most early commercial Buses and you would have a hard time finding a better value for the price in the current market.

The list of features to note is long and includes being the desirable and gorgeous original color of L53 Sealing Wax Red, being a factory double door with cargo doors on both sides as well as original belly pans, having a proper stale air 40hp engine that was the standard dealer replacement for the original Bastard 40hp engine, most of the parts on the Bus are genuine German originals, original cab divider with original glass, original VWOA elephant ear mirrors, dual sun visors, VW logoed mud flaps, accessory flower vase, and much more.

The body is way above average, presents very well, and would make a very respectable driver for a lucky new owner. It has all the correct doors, correct church key decklid and early apron, correct slash end bumpers with splash pans, solid original belly pans and remarkably clean undercarriage, original crow's foot 15 inch Bus wheels with Firestone bias plies and grey commercial hubcaps, too.

The interior is faithful to original with the Sealing Wax Red painted cab, grey press board panels including the pocketed front door panels, grey front bench seat, 70mph speedo, original radio block off plate, black rubber floor mat, and the entire cargo area is painted flat grey as it was originally. It's clean and very enjoyable as it is.

Mechanically the Bus is very stock with the stale air 40hp engine, full synchro reduction box transaxle, converted to 12 volt electrical system, stock suspension, and stock brakes, too. The engine features the correct Bosch centrifugal advance distributor, the rare Bastard 40hp style fuel pump, Bastard era carburetor, and the Bastard air cleaner with the correct support brackets that connect to the rear lip of the shroud, too. It runs and drives and does what the original literature claimed, cruising comfortably around town but a bit underpowered for long freeway runs in the modern day!

The "Bev's Bakery" decals are static cling and easily removable.

Overall this is a respectable early commercial Bus in better condition than most we see. This is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to promote their business with a mobile billboard, just the same as Volkswagen demonstrated back in the 1950's and 1960's. Thanks!
