A comprehensive rotisserie restoration completed on this 1959 Volkswagen 23-Window Executive Microbus, rendering it in sensational condition backed by modest drivability upgrades. Officially known as a Type 2 Transporter and most commonly and lovingly known as the Bus, Volkswagen’s all-purpose utility van capitalized on the growing worldwide popularity of the Beetle.
Originally equipped with a 25 horsepower engine, it has since been upgraded to a 2110cc / 125hp that will easily keep up with modern-day traffic. An external oil cooler was added to keep the oil cool in hotter climates and prolongs engine life and reliability. Disc brakes were added as well to increase stopping power. The original radio is still in the dash and a modern one is hidden. The speedometer reads 70,215 miles and that is believed to be original to the chassis.
This Bus is the rare and highly desirable 7 passenger, German-built, Executive version with the short bench seat in the middle to allow passengers to walk from the front to the back with ease. Rear window guards and chrome trim vents also came on this model.
This VW has spent most of it's restored life on the beaches of Hawaii, and just recently came back home to Colorado. Overall it is a stunning piece of history with all the original glass, in the original paint combination, and runs and drives excellent. CALL TODAY 720-465-5104
