SOLD!  1965 Camper Bus, Velvet Green, Dry and Solid Driver!

1965 Camper Bus, Clean and Dry Driver, Velvet Green!

Here we have a super solid and respectable old Camper that is the perfect mixture of nice looking and totally enjoyable as a Bus to use regularly.  It is an older restoration that shows some signs of use but still displays well and brings compliments too.

Some of the features include being a desirable original color of Velvet Green, upgraded 1600 dual port engine, extremely solid body with great floors and very dry undercarriage, fold-out table, rear seat/bed setup, icebox, a custom built-in toilet, Westfalia louvered windows, nice curtains for privacy, and it will even come with an original German woodslat roof rack.  A previous owner cut down the middle legs on the rack however but it is still fully functional.

The body has an older repaint in the original color of Velvet Green and looks very respectable for a driver.  There are some stone chips and tiny door ding type imperfections you'd expect to see on a driver but it is clean overall.  A tree branch fell on the driver's rear roof at one point and you can see the ding it left there in the numerous pictures as well.  The body is extremely solid with excellent floors, gutters, and rockers.  There are a couple small blisters showing on the long rocker but they are tiny.  The outriggers and jackpoints are very nice and solid and are still covered in factory undercoating.  This is one you could confidently jack up by the factory jack points without fear of them collapsing under the weight of the Bus.  An afternoons worth of detailing time would no doubt bring out the shine this Camper has in it.

The interior is clean and comfortable with newer seat covers, nice wood grain paneling, fresh linoleum flooring, and very functional plaid curtains.  There is the standard folding rear seat bed setup with storage below, rear cabinets setup, folding table, original icebox with storage drawer above, and it is missing the water pump which I believe can easily be sourced through RV supply stores.  A previous owner custom made his own toilet setup which would be great if you plan to Camp in remote locations.  The cab area is in good shape with a clean dash featuring an accessory lighter as well as a optional dash clock like was original fitment on Deluxe models.  The cab door panels have typical warping and could be replaced if that suits your taste.  The wood headliner paneling is in great shape and really adds a tasteful appeal to the interior.

Mechanically the Bus is fully turnkey and ready to enjoy.  It has received a very common upgrade of a 1600 dual port engine which runs well.  Some of its details include a 009 distributor and a Bosch blue coil otherwise it is stock down to the aircleaner assembly.  The stock 14 inch Bus wheels have nice white stripe radial tires with excellent tread as well. 

This is a very presentable, enjoyable, and affordable Camper.  Spring is here and it's time to Camp out.  Thanks!


*Please note that this Bus is located in El Cajon, California and that the custom license plates are not included in the sale.
