1960 Mango Standard Microbus With Camper Interior!   Price: Sale Pending
1960 Mango Standard Microbus In Mostly Original Paint With Beautiful Camper Interior!

This cool looking early Standard Microbus was built on February 9, 1960, and was delivered to Charleston, South Carolina. It was then sold brand new at Bob Bywater Motors, the Volkswagen dealership in Florence, South Carolina. The original dealer decal is still intact on the decklid, too. It has spent many of its recent years in the loving hands of early Bus collectors in the Pacific Northwest.

Some of the features to note include that it is still wearing mostly original Mango Green and Seagull Grey paint, it's a factory 6 popout window Bus, it features a brand new and very well done Camper interior, a fresh set of radial tires, all electrical works including the radio, and it's an excellent driver as well.

The body is very respectable for a 59 year old survivor that has never been restored. It does have some typical fading, dings, and wear consistent with its age and it was recently treated to a bit of sympathetic welding and paint blending down low as needed including rockers, lower nose, battery corner, etc. The work is nicely done and blends consistently as you can see. The work was done by Jake aka SledVW. Details to note include having all the correct doors, church key decklid, correct apron, slash end bumpers, etc.

The interior is very nice, super fresh, and well done. From the rich Meranti Mahogony wood, vintage style plaid upholstery on the cushions, beautiful German square weave carpeting, new German wool front headliner, new Caramel seat upholstery, it's just very inviting and brings back the era. I think most of us would be excited to take a weekend trip in this one.

Mechanically the Bus is an excellent driver with a nice running 1600cc single port engine, freshly rebuilt stock reduction box transaxle by Gary Zinc, Volksbitz restored carb that starts and runs awesome, new LT rated radial tires on the correct 15 inch Bus wheels, and all of the electrical works including the vintage AM-FM in-dash radio. This Bus has on several long-distance and cross-country drives in recent years. Several Pacific Northwest Bus collectors who know the Bus have remarked about what a good driver it is.

This Bus offers a super cool patina appearance, an excellent and high-quality Camper interior, and road proven mechanicals. It's ready to continue with the good vibes and adventures with a lucky new owner. Thanks!
