This bus started itís life on 9/15/1960 as a wax red fire truck in Germany and was imported to the US in 1988. The siren and emergency light switch remains on the dash with the fire truck door cards. The owner at the time documented everything that was done to the bus and even when and where fuel was purchased while in Germany. The owner imported It to the Houston Texas Port and then was delivered to Colorado. The same owner had rust repairs completed and it was painted in the two tone paint that itís in now. From there it traveled to Hawaii and then back to the 48.

While I had it in Texas I had motor trouble and the motor that was in it locked up. On 1/10/2020 a new motor was installed and the old motor remains with the bus for extra parts or a future rebuild. The bus was rewired with modern fuses and relays and the person did an amazing job. My goal was to bring the bus back to its fire truck state but it also makes a awesome beach cruiser.

Ive owned Volkswagens for the last 15 years and this drives like a new car. Itís the best driving volkswagen Iíve ever been in.
