1963 Mouse Grey Standard Microbus, OG Paint!   Price: Sale Pending
1963 Mouse Grey and Pearl White Standard Microbus, Beautiful Patina Original Paint!

This beautifully patinaed early 1963 Standard Microbus originally came from the desert climate of Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The many years it spent there created the lovable patina that the original Mouse Grey and Pearl White paint show today.

The Bus is a road warrior and features an impressive 1776cc dual Weber carb engine, brand new radial tires, recent brake work, and it was just driven all the way from Seattle, Washington to Lake Havasu City, Arizona, where it is currently attending the Buses By The Bridge event.  The Bus has enough power and torque on hand that the owner didn't have to downshift on any hills along the way.  Quite a statement if you're familiar with how "challenged" old stock Buses are when they have stock power plants!

The body is well above average, remarkably straight, impressively dry, and the patina is really gorgeous from every angle.  All of the doors, doglegs, slash cut bumpers, decklid, church key decklid, and apron are correct for the Bus.  Sounds silly to mention those things but if you look closely at all the Buses out there, it's really crazy how few have the right metal, doors, and parts.  The Bus is remarkably dry and did have some typical welding on the cargo rocker, the short rocker, the outer edge of the cargo floor, and an outrigger, too.  All are functional repairs and the Bus is fully enjoyable!  The underside is nice and dry, just what you'd hope to find for a real desert climate Bus.  The pics really speak for themselves. 

The interior is original, a tad ratty, and would be fun for a new owner to bring up to the next level.  The front and rear seats are in ratty original upholstery, there are original floor mats in fair to good shape, and the dash is also original paint and pretty nice.

Mechanically this Bus is turnkey with the professionally-built $6,000 1776cc engine from Aircooled Engineering.  It includes dual Weber 40IDF carbs, high torque cam, filter style oil pump, a Kennedy clutch, and a 12 volt alternator, too.  The engine has about 5,000 miles on it and the trans is in good working order, too.  All electrical works with the exception of the high beam indicator bulb and the emergency flasher.

Overall this is a beautiful early Bus for patina lovers in the cool and less-often-seen colors of Mouse Grey and Pearl White.  If you're seeking a rocking early Bus that you can enjoy immediately and bring to a higher level over time, you should have a good look at this one.  Thanks!

Sale Pending

The Bus is currently at the Buses By The Bridge event in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.  If you act in the next couple days, he can deliver it to the port in Houston or Los Angeles for you.  If it hasn't sold, he will be driving it to Colorado Springs and will be there for over a week, and the Bus will be stored there in Colorado after.
