1957 Standard Microbus, Performance Upgrades!   Price: $65,000
1957 Standard Microbus, Quality Performance Upgrades, Magazine Featured Bus!

Here is a super solid, great looking, and very enjoyable early 1957 Palm Green over Sand Green Standard Microbus.

This Bus was featured in HotVW's, Ultra VW's, VW Tech Magazine, and there are several performance upgrades and features to note including:

*Early 1957 Bus with Bubble Taillights and Brakelight Decklid
*Fresh 2110cc Engine with Dual 40mm Carburetors
*Rancho Pro Street Transaxle
*Saco 4 Wheel Disc Brakes
*CB Performance Narrowed Beam with Dropped Spindles
*All 3 Rows of Seats
*Safari Windows from Creative Engineering
*Interior from West Coast Classics
*Reproduction Porsche Fuchs Alloy Wheels with Continental Tires
*12 Volt Electrical System
*Birth Certificate from Volkswagen is also included

The body is in nice shape, looks great, and was painted in the original colors of L311/L312, Palm Green over Sand Green. You'll note the pressed bumpers, brakelight decklid, bubble taillights, and bullet turn signals as well. You can see that it is super solid with beautiful and dry floors, too.

The interior features all 3 rows of seats, beautiful and faithful Soft Green paneling and upholstery, a mohair headliner, black rubber mats, and a beautiful dash as well. The interior was supplied from West Coast Classics in Southern California.

Mechanically the Bus is fully turnkey and ready to enjoy. There has been a lot of money invested in high quality and brand name components throughout including:

*2110cc Engine, AS41 magnesium case, fully dynamically balanced, CB Performance 82mm Crankshaft, AA brand 90.5mm Pistons and Cylinders, mildly ported 40mm X 35.5mm big valve cylinder heads, ratio rockers, Bugpack camshaft, large Type 4 oil cooler, CSP 1.5" heater boxes, Vintage Speed stainless steel muffler, Decade dual 40mm carburetors, and a 75 amp alternator, too. Engine tins have been powder coated for a lasting finish.

*Transaxle is a Rancho Pro Street with 4:12 ring and pinion. Saco disc brakes on rear as well.

*Front End is a CB Performance 2 inch narrowed beam with 3.5 inch dropped spindles and Saco cross-drilled disc brakes.

*Wheels are Reproduction Porsche Fuchs Alloys, 15 X 5 Front, 15 X 6 deep Rear. Tires are Continental 175/55/15 Front, 195/60/15 Rear.

This Bus is nicer than most you'll see from the same era and you would have a very difficult time attempting to build another as nice with the same quality features it has to offer for the price! Thanks!

$65,000 US Dollars
