1962 Standard Microbus

1962 Standard Microbus in Original Turkis and Blue White Paint!

This super dry Southern California Bus was recently revived after spending more than 20 years off the road.  It is rock solid, very complete, looks cool with a little fade and patina, has been mechanically serviced and refreshed, and is ready to enjoy.

Some of the many features include mostly original Turkis and Blue White paint, completely and professionally refreshed interior, 6 factory popout windows, a stock stale air 40hp engine, new bias ply tires, a brand new wiring harness, 12 volt electrical conversion, and a new reproduction Westfalia style wood slat roof rack, too. 

The body is clean and very solid and displays the majority of the original Turkis and Blue White paint.  The cargo rocker was replaced and some paint blending was done to keep the patinaed appearance uniform.  The Bus is now looking good and very dry up top and underneath, too.  A peak at the underside of the front wheel well tubs shows really clean original Turkis paint.  All of the doors, church key decklid, apron, slash cut bumpers, and 15 inch slotted Bus wheels are correct for the Bus.

The interior is very nice and was just completely and professionally refreshed with a new mohair headliner, new Como Green/Phosphor interior panels, new pleated seat upholstery, new black rubber floor mats, and topped off with early Deluxe-style aluminum coat hooks as well.  The middle seat is technically out of a later Bus but still looks nice and matches beautifully.  Additionally the original front and rear floors were cleaned and resprayed to keep the interior sterile and presentable.

Mechanically the Bus has a era-correct and good running stale air 40hp engine, a stock and good shifting reduction box transaxle, recently rebuilt braking system, a brand new wiring harness, new and spendy bias ply tires, and the electrical system has been converted to 12 volts for faster starting, added reliability, and brighter lights as well.  It is a nice and impressively stock driver that is ready for action.

This is a very presentable and enjoyable early Bus with a great look and a great price-to-value ratio for somebody looking for a good and respectable Bus that is ready to enjoy.  Thanks!


Please note that this Bus is located in Orange County, California and the custom license plate and frame are not included in the sale.
