1965 13 Window Walkthru

1965 13 Window Walkthru Deluxe, Sea Blue and Blue White, Nice Mild Custom!

Here's a very respectable, stylish, and fresh 13 Window Deluxe that will suit those who are seeking a very clean driver Bus. 

Some of the many features include safari windows, lowered suspension, 4 wheel disc brakes, Porsche Fuch's style wheels, all of the correct seats in Mesh Grey/Salt and Pepper upholstery, being a desirable factory 6 popout window Bus, a powerful 1960cc dual carbed engine, and much more. 

The body is in very good condition, freshly refinished in the original colors of Sea Blue and Blue White, and started as a very dry and straight California Bus.  It's exceptionally dry and only needed minor welding including the front floor corner wedges, the cargo rocker and outer edge, and the battery tray.  It's hard to find early Buses these days that need such a small amount of welding.  All of the body components are correct including doors, beltline and rocker Deluxe trim, bumpers with trim, church key decklid, apron, etc.  The underside is clean, very solid, and has been sprayed black for a nice sterile appearance.

The interior is very nice, fresh, super clean, and faithful to the original design from the pinpoint vinyl headliner, Mesh Grey/Salt and Pepper paneling and seat upholstery, and the original floor mats, too.  Other details to note include the correct early seats throughout, uncut original dash, original radio blockoff plate, correct Deluxe clock, rear seat luggage bar, and jailbars in the rear windows, too.

Mechanically the Bus features a fresh high performance 1960cc dual carbed engine that has a new case, stroker crank, big bore pistons and cylinders, ported and polished big valve heads, a 009 distributor, and a spendy A1 ceramic coated sidewinder exhaust system.  The engine runs nicely, has plenty of power, and produces good torque as well.  The Bus also has a properly lowered suspension with an adjustable beam, dropped spindles, a straight axle transmission, and Wilwood disc brakes at all 4 corners.  The wheels are clean Porsche Fuch's style replicas and the tires are nearly new.  The electrical system has also been converted to 12 volts for added reliability, quicker starting, and brighter lights, too. 

This is a good Bus for someone looking for a clean, solid, complete, and respectable example that is nice enough to be proud of and not too nice to drive.  It's hard to beat this one with its features in the current sea of junk Buses on the market.  Thanks!
