1962 VW Type II Bus-Fully Restored!

1962 VW Type II Bus


With the recent rise of collector car values I have found myself having less “fun”… For some reason when more $$ are involved things just seem more serious and some of the joy comes out of the hobby. This van brings back the word “JOY”…


Why do I say that? Take one short drive in this van and you will see looks of pure “JOY” on almost every bystanders face. You cant drive this thing with a frown on your face, it's honestly a rolling spectacle going down the road. People wave, cars honk and NOBODY cares that you are impeding traffic as you slowly motor thru town. Everywhere you stop people come out of the woodwork to talk, tell stories and take selfies. Doesn’t that sound like what driving a classic car should be about?


Now down to the nuts and bolts of this bus… It has been a several year labor of love for a local Porsche client of mine. The body had any needed rust issues addressed (I think these were rusty when new…) and a GORGEOUS combination of Porsche Signal Orange over Porsche Light Ivory two tone paint was laid down.  The paint on this bus is SPECTACULAR, with deep shine and a perfect color combination for a Porsche fanatic!


To make it even more sexy they added all of the Deluxe trim and features, an eagle eyed Type II fanatic would note that VW never offered an 11-window deluxe, but it sure looks amazing!


The interior is likewise stunning. It has been completely done from the headliner down to the correct rubber floor mats. My favorite feature: 7 seatbelts! For those of you who don’t know, I have 4 kids and am a lifelong car collector. The vast majority of my cars are 2-seaters, which means my kids don’t get to enjoy the hobby with me. What is more fun than piling the whole family in and heading to Dairy Queen on a hot summer day in this?


Mechanically the bus features a 1600dp motor that has been recently gone through and is dressed to match a correct 1962 1500. The engine runs beautifully and the bus shifts well. It’s no speed demon (would you want to go fast in this thing?) but it runs down the road wonderfully. Pop the windows and just cruise…


If you want to find “JOY” in the car world again, this is your perfect prescription! I promise that you will NEVER be ignored in this!
