1968 Deluxe Bus Superb!

1968 Deluxe Bus, Titian Red and Cloud White, Stunning Rotisserie Restoration!

Without a doubt, this has to be one of the nicest restored Bay Window generation Buses I'ver ever seen before.  The Bus was fully rotisserie restored with everything being taken apart, refinished, restored, painted, powder coated, polished, replated, etc.  The results are stunning, the underside is as nicely detailed as the top side, the floors are superb, interior is beautiful, the 1600cc engine rebuilt and highly detailed, the reflection and straightness of the body is way above average, and I simply don't recall ever having seen one brought to this level of thoroughness and detail ever before.  This Bus is far more than just your typical quickie repaint and seat covers!

The body and paint are stellar, super straight, high gloss, and are refinished in the correct 1968 Deluxe scheme of Titian Red with a Cloud White roof.  Details to note include the chrome Deluxe body trim, beautifully refinished bumpers, all new blinker and reflector lenses, all new window and body rubber, just a very thorough job.  Even the underside of this Bus is as clean and nicely painted as the top side. The insides of the wheel wells are as good as it gets and are testimony to how good of a Bus this is.

The interior is also very faithfully and superbly refinished in the proper two-toned grey basket weave pattern material.  The headliner is gorgeous, tight, and accurate.  The interior panels are usually wobbly, distorted, and shrunken after so many years but these are excellent, straight as can be, and really set the interior off well.  The seats are correct, highly detailed, and the upholstery fits very nicely.  Well above the norm for what we see on the average Bus!  Other details to note include the beautiful dash pad, original Sapphire radio, super nice stock steering wheel, absolutely A+ floors that are as nicely painted as the outside of the Bus, the spotless floor mats, detailed and replated hardware all over the place, and the often overlooked front door panel air vents are in place, too.  

Mechanically this 1968 is all stock, features a nicely detailed and rebuilt 1600cc engine, stock IRS transaxle, all stock suspension that has been disassembled, serviced, repainted/powdercoated/replated as necessary, and it has a factory 12 volt system, too.  The wheels are correct 14 inch Bus smoothies that have a fresh set of white stripe radial tires and stock chrome hubcaps, too.  

If you would like to own one of the cleanest, freshest, and most thoroughly restored Bay Window Buses around, this Bus is a must see.  I simply couldn't point you towards a nicer one than this.  Thanks!


Please note that this 1968 is located in Orange County, California.
