1960 Mango Walkthru Bus, Very Pretty!   Price: $62,500
1960 Mango Walkthru, 6 Popouts, Safaris, Stunning!

Here's a beautiful Mango Green and Seagull Grey 1960 that is exceptionally nice inside, outside, and on the underside, too.  It was previously on display inside a glass display case inside a new Volkswagen dealership showroom in Florida before the current owner brought it to his vacation home in Martha's Vineyard.  It has been driven approximately 1500 miles since completion, mostly touring around during the Summer months and getting ice cream with the grandkids. 

Some of the many features to note include the exceptional paint and body, the Walkthru seating complete with the short middle seat, desirable 6 popout windows with long spoon latches, safari windshields, excellent Caramel interior, awesome mohair headliner that is nice and tight, stock stale air 40hp engine, and the Firestone 6.40-15 bias ply wide white wall tires that really bring back the era.

The body and paint are beautiful, way above average, and most anyone who loves Volkswagens would be proud to have an early Bus this pretty.  Details to note include the correct icepick handle cab doors, correct high hinge cargo doors, proper decklid and church key apron, slash cut bumpers, bullet turn signals, and round glass taillights, too.  A look underneath shows that it was nicely painted, detailed, including all suspension having been removed for service/restoration/painting/detailing at the time of the build.  A lot of effort and time went into making this Bus exceptional.

The interior is a highlight, absolutely beautiful, and high quality.  The cloth mohair headliner is nice and snug, the Caramel panels are excellent, and the seats are stunning with the seams all lining up wonderfully on the seat edges, a detail that is so often missed.  Other details to note include the accessory aluminum coat hooks, Caramel upholstery liner inside the parcel tray, color-matched rear luggage shelf pressboard panel, and the spare wheel complete with factory-style cover.  Most guys only dream of having this nice and thoroughly done of an interior in their early Bus!

Mechanically the Bus is bone stock with a very clean 1200cc stale air 40hp engine that also dates to 1960, a stock reduction box transaxle, stock suspension and brakes, and great tread left on the Firestone bias ply tires which are mounted on tastefully two-toned 15 inch Bus wheels.  It starts right up, runs nicely, and I can share a few videos of the Bus with seriously interested parties, too. 

Here's your chance to own an exceptionally clean and enjoyable early Bus with several desirable features and for a whole lot less than what it would cost you to have one professionally built to the same level!  Those who have been through the process in recent times can confirm that fact.  Thanks!


Please note this Mango is located in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts.
