SOLD!  1959 23 Window Bus!

1959 23 Window Deluxe Microbus, Restored!

Here we have a beautiful Sealing Wax Red and Light Beige Grey 23 Window Sunroof Deluxe Microbus with very few miles since completion of the restoration.  It is very pretty throughout, complete, and ready to enjoy.

Some of its many features include very nice original safari windows, great running stock 1192cc 36hp engine, all 3 rows of seats, factory accessory ambulance fan, being a desirable 6 popout window model with long spoon popout latches, and being as detailed and pretty on the underside as it is up top.

The paint and body are excellent, far above average, and even the floors and belly pans are beautifully painted in Sealing Wax Red.  The body was finished very well and the "no shortcut" approach is very apparent.  All of the window and body rubber has been replaced with new as well.  Some of the cool details include bullet turn signals, round glass taillights, fully polished Deluxe aluminum trim, icepick style door handles, and the bumpers are European style blades with the longer European spec aluminum trim which is rarely seen here in the States.   

The interior is completely refreshed with new styled-after-original interior panels, seat covers, headliner, and black rubber floor mats.  They are well done, comfortable, and very respectable as they are but the Bus could also be seen as deserving of more faithful to original materials such as what are offered by Octavio's or Lenny of West Coast Classics.  That kind of detail could help the Bus be brought up to the next level and the max of its potential if that were desired.  The dash is beautiful with a correct 70mph clear needle speedometer, original radio block off plate, and the correct early Deluxe clock in place as well. 

Mechanically the Bus has fully rebuilt stock mechanicals including a very nice 36hp engine featuring a correct single tip muffler, rebuilt transaxle, stock 6 volt electrical system, all new brakes throughout, a completely rebuilt and detailed front beam, and as new radial white stripe tires.  The Bus runs very well and is a pleasure to drive.
