1955 Euro PG-SG Standard micro bus   Price: $55,000
Offering for sale a May of 1955 European delivered spec standard micro bus
This bus was put away in a rural Oregon barn in 1962 and left to rot. I found this bus in 2010. If you are not familiar with this bus, you can read up on it here: https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=431367
This bus was brought to the states by an army officer in early 1956 and sold at a used car lot in downtown Portland, Oregon in 1961. I bought it from the gentleman who bought it in 1961 who parked it in the barn in 1962. What started off as just a simple cleaning, turned into quite the adventure through the years!

Mechanically the bus features a 1600dp engine I built using a 1973 AM Thing (type 181) case, This engine is still Std. Std. Std. meaning standard crank, standard thrust cut ,standard cam bearings. No machining was needed on the case and crank. This engine has about two hundred miles on it now. The trans is a good used trans removed from a 1966 bus. I installed new metal and new flexible brake lines, new shocks, new tie rods, steering dampener, draglink, and a starter. I converted the electrics to 12 volts. The semaphores are dialed in through a nice voltage drop unit on a heat sink. Everything electrically works in this bus. One key operates all the locks and ignition as it should.

The bus has its bumps and bruises for being sixty four years old. The paint was blended where metal work was done. The interior is very nice! All its original seats are re-installed with new spring sections as needed. There are many more details I could go over and am happy to do so with the potential new owner. I am asking $55,000 for this beauty. Serious folks please use the phone if you can. No trades unless its a house in Arizona. This bus is located in the Portland, Oregon metro area. Thank you for looking!
