Fresh out of a complete, fully detailed restoration, this 1965 Deluxe 13
window Microbus is a highly desirable rarity which affords the VW
enthusiast the ultimate opportunity to both enjoy the feel of a genuine,
vintage VW and invest in an appreciating collectible.
The beneficiary of an extensive top-notch restoration where every part was
completely rebuilt and detailed to the highest level possible, this 1965 13
window Deluxe is as close to the ultimate Volkswagen Type 2 as you can get.
After spending most of its life in the dry Texas sun, it was completely
disassembled, stripped to bare metal and sanded until its panels were
exceptionally straight. Once the body presented better than factory
surfaces and super tight panel alignment, a slick coat of correct Blue
White paint was applied throughout the interior, and its rust-free body was
coated in a correct Velvet Green and Blue White two-tone color scheme.
Under the rear hatch of this Deluxe you'll find a Kelly Huffman built and
significantly upgraded 1641 CC engine that utilizes a new OEM VW engine
case, an Engle 110 camshaft, a forged and counterweighted 69mm crankshaft,
and newly adjusted valves to both create a traditional Microbus feel and
provide improved performance characteristics. At the sides of the block,
dual 40 Weber IDF carburetors utilize a hex bar linkage to mix air from
reusable air filter elements with fuel supplied by new stainless fuel
lines. At the top of the motor, an aftermarket coil supplies a new 009
points distributor which sends power through fresh plug wires to new Bosch
plugs; and behind the motor, a fresh V-belt spins a new Euromax alternator
that, along with a new Interstate battery and new cables, is part of an
upgraded, modern 12 volt electrical system.
Since the Type 1 Beetle floorpan proved too weak for the Type 2
Transporter, Volkswagen engineered a new ladder chassis with unit-body
construction. At the front of the bus, rebuilt drum brakes sit at the edges
of a completely rebuilt and freshly painted independent suspension; and at
the back of the bus, a new Kelly Huffman built Freeway Flyer transmission
hangs over a spectacular ceramic coated EMPI header and ceramic coated EMPI
muffler. Power flows to the ground through original 14 inch steel wheels
which wear correct Silver White paint, new chrome hubcaps and new 185/75
Hankook whitewall radials. And massive, dent-free original floorpans
display smooth satin black paint above a host of newly rebuilt parts which
include a new drag link and tie rods, a new accelerator linkage, new
shifter bushings, a new rear shift coupler, a new steering box seal and a
new POR-15 sealed fuel tank.
Fully intact but badly in need of restoration, this buses original interior
was painstakingly brought back to life by Lenny Copp of West Coast Classic
Restoration in Fullerton, California. All three rows of original seats were
completely stripped, repainted and restored to their current state. Behind
the front seats, an original drink bar frame holds an original rubber top
molding; and above all three rows of seats, a custom cut headliner holds
new visors, new coat hooks and a new assist strap. In front of the driver,
a Koch restored steering wheel holds a restored horn button above an
original style ignition, and to the right of the driver, a correctly
painted shifter is topped by an original shift knob. At the front of the
van, an original dash is painted a slick coat of Blue White to match the
outside of the bus and hangs a new church key for the engine bay below
original rebuilt gauges, a correct radio delete, original dash knobs and a
fully functional Deluxe-exclusive VDO Kienzle clock. At the back of the
van, the German square-weave carpeted cargo area includes original 'jail
bars', new OEM German luggage bars, and a matching spare wheel and tire.
As one of the most enjoyable and desirable collector vehicles on the
market, this 1965 Deluxe Microbus just oozes the kind of personality that
can only be found in 60s era specialty cars. Call, click or visit
