Here is your chance to own a very original 1968 Arizona Yellow Deluxe Van , This is a rare color combo that was only for 1968 . I purchased this great Vw bus from the second owner . Who told me the original owners owned this vehicle till just last year . I do not have records of these things, but the previous owner was a very honest person, so I believe her.. She had told me stories of how all the original owners children learned to drive in this vehicle and was loved by the original owners for over 40 years .
When I purchased the vehicle it was ready for some overhauling . I went through all the braking system, starting with all brake lines , wheel cylinders , brake shoes ,and had all the brake drums turned .
The body of this van is pretty amazing still retaining 95% of its Original Paint . It has had a couple touch ups over the years but is a very solid driver . Yes it does have a little paint fading ,couple dings here and there .But overall has pretty strong paint . I honestly love the way it looks and is nice enough to turn heads and not so nice your afraid to leave it in a parking lot .
The front and rear floors did have replacement pieces welded in and floors resprayed the original color . The rocker panels and good and solid , and is in overall good condition .
The motor is a rebuilt 1600cc with a new alternator, new carb and distributor . the transmission was also gone through at the time of the motor rebuild . So if i had to describe how this bus runs and drives down the road . All I would say is Amazing ! It truly drives like and brand new Vw bus.
The interior is 100% Original, all seat covers , door panels , mats ,and headliner . and are in surprisingly good condition . The tires are brand new with less than 100 miles on them . Also a brand new roof rack was added . And looks great .
If you are looking for a Vw Bus in very good Original Condition with loads of character don't pass this one up . It drives so great who ever wins this auction will not be disappointed ..

Volkswagen dug into its commercial vehicle fleet for its latest Geneva Motor Show concept, blending the versatile body of the T5 MultiVan with a luxuriously appointed interior, 4Motion all-wheel drive and a thrifty diesel powertrain.

That 177-horsepower diesel engine routes its power to the AWD system through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Based on that alone, we'd expect the Multivan Alltrack's behind-the-wheel experience to be somewhat familiar. That all-wheel-drive system and van body contribute to the 21-degree approach and 15-degree departure angles of this soft-roading MultiVan.
What wouldn't be familiar is its exquisite cabin. Volkswagen opted for a nautical theme for the concept's interior, featuring grey-blue leather seats from Poltrona Frau and a floor finished in real wood. The dark wood trim can also be found throughout the interior, running below the windows and on the dash.
Volkswagen is in New York this week showing off its new Jetta and Golf TDI SportWagen concept. But in less than a week, the German automaker will be off to China for the Beijing Motor Show, where it will showcase the revised Touareg you see here.

A subtle update on the Touareg that's been on the market in its current form for four years now, the facelifted model features reworked styling front and rear, an updated interior and a host of new technologies to keep it current in the highly competitive SUV market. Among those new features are larger bi-xenon headlights, coasting function, Google Maps integration and a post-collision braking system designed to prevent a second crash.
VW will offer the new Touareg with a variety of engines around the world, but in North America it'll carry over the same six-cylinder powertrain options as the outgoing model: a 3.6-liter V6 with 280 horsepower, a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 with 240 hp (though torque isn't listed, we'd expect around 406 pound-feet, same as last year) and a hybrid that marries a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 to an electric motor that combine to deliver 380 hp.
Hedge fund managers have been suing Porsche for years now, alleging that the car company lied about its intentions during its failed attempt to take over Volkswagen, a gambit that caused them billion in losses. Over the same period, authorities in Stuttgart built a criminal case against former CEO Wendelin Wiedeking (above, left) and Chief Financial Officer Holger Härter (right), filing charges in December 2012. When those fund plaintiffs lost their most recent court case, one of the dimming lights in the dark and receding tunnel was that the criminal investigation might unearth more evidence about Porsche's actions that could help the plaintiffs in pending litigation.
Bloomberg reports that another light has gone out, though, with a Stuttgart court dismissing the market manipulation case before going to trial because, as a court spokesperson said, "there wasn't enough evidence backing up the charges." When prosecutors get the files back from the court, they have a week to decide to refile, but unless they've been sandbagging evidence that could bolster the case, the only lights at the end of the tunnel will be those welcoming Wiedeking and Härter back to the world of legally unencumbered men.
