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 ..

This was bound to happen. Volkswagen's relentless drive for big volume has the brand mining seemingly every niche it can find for additional sales worldwide. And with its CLS Shooting Brake, fellow countryman Mercedes-Benz has already shown that a wagon based off of a "four-door coupe" can look dead sexy and command extra dollars. So it follows that the Volkswagen CC (whose existence is all but directly attributable to the success of the original CLS sedan) will also get a load-lugging variant. That's according to the UK's Autocar, which notes that the five-door will come in the CC's next generation.

According to the report, the next CC will be available in front and all-wheel drive variants with the usual assortment of gas and diesel four-cylinders found in the Wolfsburg empire, with the possibility of a gas plug-in hybrid model, too. The rakish estate will ride atop VW's MQB architecture, a shorter variant of which is also found underneath the new Golf. The scalable chassis is set to spread like kudzu throughout the company's lineup, but the CC probably won't happen until after the launch of the next European-market Passat in 2015.
Will we get it in North America? Hard to say. Volkswagen sells the standard CC saloon here, but not in particularly large numbers, and when the company moved to a North American-specific Passat, it dumped the wagon variant. The traditional VW estate apparently continues to pick up sales momentum abroad, however, making the CC Shooting Brake a seemingly natural fit for buyers who still want the utility of a two-box form but can afford to sacrifice a bit of cargo room in the name of style.
Meet the Volkswagen baby CC. Okay, that's not really it's name (VW calls it the New Midsize Coupe Concept), but this sleek, four-door coupe draws more than a little inspiration from the CC while riding on VW's MQB platform.

It's a looker, we think, and is an eye-pleasing departure from the bland styling of the current Jetta. The sleeker front end is complemented by a wider body overall (it's wider than a Passat), while the more sporting roofline and the sharp rear fascia gives the New Midsize Coupe a decidedly sporting character. LED head- and taillights add a bit more personality to this already stylish design.
Thanks to its 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder, it should get along rather sportingly, as well. The run to 62 miles per hour takes just 6.5 seconds thanks to the 217 horsepower on offer. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is also fitted, and contributes to an estimated 37 miles per gallon.
Ahead of its official unveiling at next week's Detroit Auto Show, Volkswagen has released some preliminary details and images of its Passat Performance Concept - a car that, as its name suggests, adds a little more spice to the automaker's midsize sedan formula. VW makes no mention of any production intent for this road-ready-looking sedan, simply stating that the Performance Concept is a way to "explore this practical four-door's sportier side."
It certainly doesn't look too sporty, the only visual upgrades being larger 19-inch wheels, dual exhaust, bi-xenon headlamps with VW's Advanced Front Lighting system, LED taillmaps and carbon-look mirror caps. Inside, there are carbon interior accents and two-tone leather upholstery. But no matter, the real upgrades for this mightier Passat are found below the sheetmetal.
Powering the Performance Concept is a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, churning out 250 horsepower and sending its grunt to the ground via a six-speed automatic transmission. For reference, that's 80 more horsepower than the Passat's base 2.5-liter inline-five, but 20 horsepower less than the potent 3.6-liter VR6. As for other performance upgrades, Volkswagen has fitted the car with a lowered sport suspension and revamped electronic steering, which should indeed add a bit more dynamic feedback to the already nice-driving sedan.
