1963 VW Transporter Panel Bus - Walk-Thru
Vehicle Description

1963 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon

This is a great running, driving, walk-through panel Bus that has a couple small spots of rust in the front floor area that really aren’t that bad. This Bus is going to need a little metal work around the wheels as someone opened up the wheel wells for larger tires at some point. The panels are all available to be able to repair what was cut.

There is some damage to the driver side a-pillar that will need to be straightened out. The driver’s door was replaced and opens and closes, but the lower hinge plate is tweeked on the a-pillar. The nose has some damage by the driver’s headlight, but is repairable. The impact was fairly light and the pillar isn’t pushed in very much. The side door for entry doors both work great and latch easily and solid.

It has a 1300cc engine with a 009 distributor, new carburetor, Bosch blue coil, new wires, and new muffler. The tires are all new, the seats have been reupholstered, it has new door panels, kick panels, and rear hatch panel. The new tires are mounted on original rims that were sand blasted and painted.

This bus has been well preserved and has been in a garage for several years. Even the steering wheel is in pretty good shape! This would make a great restoration or camper conversion with the walk-through. This van still has some nice patina on it and the logo on the side might come back with a little elbow grease if that’s the look you are going for. This would make for an excellent restoration, camper conversion (since it’s a walk-through), or drive it like it is! Runs and drives great and is ready to jump in and cruise as it is! With a little work this beauty could be worth twice as much as I am asking. Happy Bidding!
