Very well restored 13 window Series 1 transporter. The vintage VW buses took the collector car market by storm a few years ago with several selling well into the 6 figure range at auction. It was no fluke, still today they are highly desirable and some hitting $200,000. Yes, they made lots and lots of them, but most were work horses driven until they died or rotted away. They are so popular today because so many people can relate to them. They have their own sub culture in the collector car world.
EXTERIOR: Last year of the "V" design front end. Known as a 13 window for obvious reason. It is also decked out with a roof rack and a rare original ladder that was restored. Very cute looking in two tone red and white. The body and paint were professionally restored. It's smooth all over, even at the corners and along the bottoms. Panels fit real nice. Very nice quality paint job, it's buffed very smooth and glossy. Jambs are painted slick. The bumpers were painted just as glossy. Exterior trim has been replaced including the antenna, turn signal and headlight units, mirrors, handles and taillights. The rims were repainted and the hubcaps look new. The tires look new. All the glass looks like it's in excellent shape. I think they replaced all the rubber gaskets and weatherstrips. The rear hatch opens to a storage shelf.
INTERIOR: This one has the pass through seating. Upfront there is an aisle between the seats, 2nd row is a narrower 2 seater, 3rd row is a full bench. No need to climb over seats. It's in great shape inside. All the metal has been painted white like the outside. The seats have firm cushion and are all upholstered to match in vintage material. The side panels look new and match the seats. The headliner is all new white perforated material, new visors. There are seat belts for the front. New rubber mats on the floor. Everything looks new- rear deck panel, tire cover, firewall panel, rubber under the seats, even the screws. It has the overhead ventilator that allows air to come in from outside just above the windshield and through vent on ceiling.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It looks detailed. 1200 cc- 40 hp, 4 cylinder. The motor and all the components look new. It must be freshly restored. There is some extra chrome trim. The distributor and carburetor look new. It looks complete and proper, the heat tubes are hooked up. The engine bay is all clean metal painted real nicely.
UNDERSIDE: Floors and frame look solid, painted black. 4 new shocks. Bottom of the motor is clean. It has the heat tube going from the motor to the front.
We acquired this from a long time customer/ collector that only owned quality. He kept this at his vacation home in the resort area of Door County Wi. It's cute but also functional. Ready to be driven and enjoyed. You will have fun, people love these. All you will get are happy comments.
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
