For Sale 1966 VW Deluxe 13 Window OG Paint
Buy Classic Volks – Volkswagen 13 Window Deluxe Bus for sale at Auburn, California, USA. Very good condition on Original Paint Blue and white combination. This is the last thing I want to do is part with this bus but Im in the middle of opening and new business and need the money more than the bus.
Volkswagen Type 2
|Color||Sea Blue and Cumulus White|
Up for grabs is my 66 13 window deluxe all original paint. This bus started life as a bench seat model but at some point in its life the bulk head was removed and bucket seats were added. When I purchased the bus fixing this was my first order of business. I sourced out a nice donor walk thru section then located a set of correct walk thru seats. So now the bus is a walk thru model instead of the bench seat style it started off as. Please note that the M Code tag was missing when I purchased the bus and I haven’t had a reproduction one made yet. All other vins# are present.
The walk thru conversion is about 90% complete it still needs paint blending to tie it all together.
The body of the bus is in great condition as a matter of fact the only rust I found was on the cargo floor by the middle seat brackets and it very very minor. As far as straight goes it very nice it does have some scratches here and there and some chips like you would expect from and 47 years old automobile. The only thing on the body I would repair and planned on doing was the left rear corner it was hit at some point and was pounded back out it does look presentable but would look better if properly repaired. The rear engine door and apron was also damaged at this time I do have a OG paint engine door that will be included with the sale but I haven’t sourced a replacement for the apron yet. Now the to touch base on the roof. The way I understand it was that the bus had been parked agisnt the side of a house in the snow country at some point the snow had slid off the roof of the house and onto the roof of the bus crushing the center of it. When I purchased the bus the PO had pushed must of the dents back out there is still more work that could be done to make it look even better but I have not done anything with it since I have owned it. My plans for the roof was to convert it to a 21 window and I have already purchased the conversion kit from VW sunroofs .com at a cost of 5k. This is not included with the sale of the bus but is available separately. I can also assist with the install of this conversion and paint work as well if desired.
The drive train of the bus is 100% new less than 1500 miles since I complete it 3 weeks ago.
top of the line built 2275 with huge heads 44 idfs and A1 exhaust over 7k in just the engine. Built by OLD SPEED. Its set up with a external oil cooler all braided lines with AN fittings and also uses a remote oil filter. The fuel system is a CB performance rotary electric fuel pump with a dedicated power line ran to the dash of the bus through the frame rails.

The rear brakes are Wilwoods again red powder coated like the front and are set up with ebrakes and have crossed drilled rotors.

Tires in the front are brand new 165 45 15 federals
Tires in the rear are brand new 205 65 15 conti pro contacts
The interior of the bus is pretty basic. I had the two front walk thru seats redone in mesh gray material with new padding and as far as rear seating goes I have a original 2/3 middle seat in mesh gray but its not included with the bus at this price but can be purchased separately. The rear seat is the original seat from the bus and is in decent shape and has its deluxe trim still intact. I have recently purchased middle and rear seat kick panels from Camping box done in the correct color for the bus but again they are not included with the bus at this price but will be available separately.
I’m sure there is more that I could touch base on here and I will update the ad with any new information that I come up with.
If your interested in the bus please give me a call and please make sure your ready to buy as I don’t have the time to deal with dreamers!I have clean title in my name in hand and ready for transfer. I have listed some of my other cars for sale on other sites and if any of them sell first I will pull the ad for this bus and keep it as I have no desire to see it go anyway.
