1968 Deluxe, Nice Restored California Native!   Price: Sale Pending
1968 Deluxe Bus, Nicely Restored California Native!

This beautiful early Bay Window Deluxe Bus has lived in California its whole life. It was originally sold at Al Harter Volkswagen in Davis, California, lived with the original German owner in Sacramento, and moved down to San Diego approximately 15 years ago. It was maintained by one German mechanic prior to being restored by the legendary Keith Klopp of North Park Imports in San Diego approximately 10 years ago. The Bus has been driven approximately 1,000 miles since the restoration was completed and it spends more time looking pretty inside Keith's shop than it has been outdoors on the road. This is a super clean, dry, and respectable Bus that you'll have a hard time topping.

Some cool features include the original California black license plates, the original Al Harter Volkswagen dealership plate frame, and the original 14 inch wheels have been tastefully two-toned in Savannah Beige and Cloud white, too.

The body was repainted in the original colors of L620 Savannah Beige with a L581 Cloud White roof. It is very straight, clean, and the gaps are way nicer than average, too. The floors and underside are great testimony to the fact that this Bus not left out to rot like most of them! There is an approximately 1 centimeter chip in the paint on the driver's side but it is not dented. Overall the Bus presents very well, as you can see.

The interior is super clean, features all of the correct seats, and has been refinished in the original scheme of Light Sand and Khaki Brown. The dash is in beautiful condition, the headliner is nice and tight, and most guys would be proud to have such a clean interior in their Bus.

Mechanically the Bus is believed to have just 63,335 original miles, the engine is also believed to be the original, and it was converted to dual port, an alternator, and a dual tip exhaust when the Bus was restored. It is currently running and driving nicely, is maintained by Keith who is one of the most legendary old school Volkswagen collectors and mechanics in San Diego, and I have a short video of the engine running in the photo link below, too. The windshield washer squirter is not currently operational.

This is a great opportunity to own a very clean early Bay Window Deluxe Bus that was never abused and has seen quality work by a respected and talented Volkswagen collector and restorer who has been heavily involved with them for over 40 years. Don't waste your time and life energy on projects, treat yourself to a wise purchase and a solid value in this Bus. Thanks!
