1956 VW Double Door Camper Van

Will consider 1957 or older convertible in trade, up or down.

Rust free body, freshly rebuilt engine and transmission as well as new brakes.
Camper interior is a reproduction of an early Westy camper according to the person I bought it from. Bed pulls out, has icebox, table, storage etc. Cool thing is it has awnings on both sides covering both of the side doors.
We went all out on the engine when we built it. I wanted to keep it as original as possible so we rebuilt a 1959, 36 HP engine to better than new condition. The crank bearings are standard/standard, which means itís never had to be align bored. All the rotating parts were balanced, and the case modified to add a full flow oil system with oil filter. Best running 36 Iíve ever driven.
The trans was rebuilt by Der Trans shop in Fullerton. Completely dismantled and mostly new parts installed. Some parts are not available so the best pre-used parts were used where new parts were not found. Works great.
While the engine and trans were out, I cleaned and painted under the car and rebuilt the brakes.
This very rare Double Door van has a full length roof rack which I also had powder coated. I also have a crank start with all the proper sheet metal and nut on the crank. And yes, it works great.
Besides a beautiful rust free body, this bus has fairly new paint, Safari windows, all doors have rechromed handles and just one key for everything. It also has a refurbished original jack too.
Not a project, ready to go camping. My last trip was to the El Prado show.
Fairly priced at only $65,000, (New lowered price). Will consider 1957 or older VW convertible in part trade.
