SOLD!  1955 Wolfsburg Standard Microbus, Original Paint!

1955 Wolfsburg Standard Microbus, Original Palm Green over Sand Green Paint!

This is a very solid and presentable early Bus that is still displaying the majority of its original Palm Green and Sand Green paint.  It has been recently refreshed mechanically and is ready to cruise and enjoy.

Some of the many features include pressed bumpers, brakelight decklid, original bubble taillights, original reflectors, and safari windows.  Other cool Wolfsburg Bus features include the tubular transaxle hanger, seamed doglegs, single position rear hatch, and most of the original dual logoed sekurit glass. 

The body is in good shape and displays the vast majority of the original paint.  There have been some touchups around to keep the appearance consistent and nice.  There is surprisingly little rust for a 55 year old Bus.  The front floor corners have some perforation and thinned metal which could be dealt with at some point in the future.  The undercarriage is very nice, dry, solid, and will likely impress you.  There are a few flaws on the body worth mentioning including a dent in the cargo rocker, a small puncture hole in the front of the roof, and a small hole cut in the passengers corner near the battery.  The paint has a super cool fade to it making this one great for early Bus and patina lovers out there. 

The interior is mostly original with original Sand Green paint, original Soft Green interior panels, and reupholstered correct flat backrest front seat.  A peek beneath the floor mats shows impressively solid original floors plenty good for here in California and only requiring a small amount of work to pass a European inspection.  The dash is very nice, uncut, and still has the original radio block off plate in place as well as the original clear needle and green faced 70mph speedometer. 

Mechanically the Bus was recently serviced and refreshed by the guys at Kustom Coach Werks in Grand Junction, Colorado.  They gave the Bus a complete brake job, new Firestone 6.40-15 bias ply tires which are mounted on nice original paint rims, as well as going through the 36hp engine to get it dialed in and pretty.  The Bus is a full driver and is a well-received regular attendee at local Southern California VW shows.

This is a great opportunity to land a very respectable ,fully enjoyable, and very early original paint Bus for a very reasonable price.  Thanks!
