***NO PAINT WORK EVER! NO BONDO! NO WRECKS! 99% RUST FREE, 100% ORIGINAL PAINT! GARAGED SURVIVOR....

RARE- 1964 Mouse Grey, Standard Micro Bus Walk Through w/ 100% OG Paint.... No Really this Bus has 100% OG paint.... Never restored, resprayed or touched up in any way. Professionally installed IRS, (no reduction boxes), narrowed front beam by Wagens West. The interior is OG including headliner, all interior panels and Saphire 1 radio. The headliner is almost perfect. The seats upholstery is the only thing that has been redone recently. Rebuilt 1600cc dual port, freeway flyer transmission. Safari windows, factory 6 pop out windows. The narrowed front beam was built by a well known local VW shop (Wagens West). The bus rides and handles awesome with the narrowed front beam and is a HUGE improvement over the stock suspension. I have never seen a split window van that has 100% og paint in this kind of original condition. Thousands of dollars and hundreds of man hours went into the preservation of this bus....

Engine/Transmission- Rebuilt 1600cc dual port. Rebuilt carb, new alternator, fuel and vac lines. Empi header style exhaust. New Optima battery. IRS (no reduction boxes.) Rebuilt freeway flyer transmission, new rear axles. The motor is finely tuned and runs perfect.

Paint/Body- This bus was garaged for a majority of its life. 100% original paint, NO REALLY 100% ORIGINAL PAINT......Very rare and desirable Mouse Grey and Pearl White. NO PAINT WORK EVER.. I had the original paint professionally polished. I took the van to a professional detail shop. They spent over 8 hours polishing the paint to a beautiful finish. I have never seen another split window bus with original paint in this kind of condition ever...The body is super strait with only a few small dents. The nose is absolutely perfect with not even a ding. Under carriage, frame, jack points, nose, floors, dog legs, inner rockers, all doors, and gutters are completely rust free, (the bus is 99% rust free). During the preservation of this bus I decided to replace the outer 14 inch section of the cargo floor, both inner lower cargo door sections were replaced with out disturbing any of the og paint. Both front floor corners were replaced. None of the og paint was damaged during the metal work. Only Funky Green (Gerson) replacement panels were used. I have documented all the metal work with several pictures on the photo bucket link above. Both front and rear bumpers were completely disassembled, sand blasted and repainted. The entire interior was removed and 3 coats of POR were put any were there was surface rust including inside of the front doors and areas behind were the interior panels go (see pictures). What sets this bus apart from other buses is all the amount of work, detail, and labor that went into areas of the bus you will never see, (No corners were cut). Hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars have been invested in the preservation of this bus.

Interior- The interior is in excellent original condition. All interior door and kick panels were removed, cleaned and are 100% original to the bus. All door panels were re glued where needed. I pressed all interior panels for a week to remove warping. I did this buy sandwiching the interior panels in between two pieces of plywood and placing several hundred pounds of weight on them. The back sides of the panels were slightly sponged with water to help flatten them out. All the original interior panels are in excellent condition. Original front kick panels. Original and hard to find rear seat kick panel. The dash is perfect and uncut. Original Saphire 1 radio by Bendix. I installed new wheel well mats as the old ones were to far gone to save. All interior dome, dash lights, electrical work as they should. The original head liner is almost perfect.

Suspension/Brakes- New narrowed Wagens West front beam (all new ball joints, tie rod ends ect). professionally installed IRS. Nothing was cut, every thing is bolt on. New brakes soft and hard lines. Repacked wheel bearings. (The bus handles and drives like a car)

Other- New hub caps with white VW centers, hard to find deluxe style beauty rings. The rims were sand blasted and painted. New Pirelli p-400 tires front and rear, reproduction luggage rack, matching size spare tire. Brand new front shocks, fresh tune up.

100% original paint survivor Mouse Grey walk through standard. This is a rare bus to begin with. Super rare to find one in this kind of original condition. I spent countless hours preserving this rare bus. I have regretfully decided to sell this bus out of my personal collection. There are many things I have done to this bus I have not listed as there is to much to list. With the updated 1600 dual port motor, freeway flyer transmission, IRS, suspension and brake work this bus runs and drives more like a car than a bus. The additional power from the upgraded motor and higher geared transmission make this bus perfect for highway and long distance driving. No expense or man hours were spared on this preservation. This is a no story's bus with no hidden problems like so many other "restored buses" on the market today. This would be the perfect center piece in any VW collection. Although I tried to be thorough in the description, I know there is much I left out. This is one of the finest unrestored split window buses in the country.... Call or email with additional questions.
I can have this bus shipped to your front door at whole sale cost

Chrysler slows minivan production, hasn't built VW Routan this year

Wed, 13 Mar 2013

Chrysler has slowed production of its Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans this week, Automotive News reports. The Windsor, Ontario plant will cut its three shifts from eight hours each to four hours each in an effort "to align production with market demand," a Chrysler spokesperson told AN. Chrysler also builds the closely related Routan minivan for Volkswagen at its Ontario facility, but has not built a single example thus far in 2013.
Sales of Chrysler's minivans fell 15 percent for the first two months of 2013, and a large part of that has to do with the 26-percent drop of the Grand Caravan alone (the T&C was only down by one percent). According to Automotive News data, as of March 1, Chrysler had an unsold inventory of 24,713 Town and Country models and 18,547 Grand Caravans - a 69- and 43-day supply, respectively.
"No sense running full speed now, then have a lot of vehicles sitting around a few months down the line," Chrysler spokeswoman Jodi Tinson told AN. Full production is expected to resume again on March 18.

VW joins Daimler's protest of new A/C refrigerant as EU deadline for compliance passes

Sun, 06 Jan 2013

The case of Dupont and Honeywell's refrigerant R-1234yf is doing the exact opposite of keeping things cool. The two chemical companies have spent years and hundreds of millions of dollars developing R-1234yf to replace R-134a, the new refrigerant shown to be 99.7-percent kinder to the environment than the one it is meant to succeed. Part of that development has been years of testing by governments, outside safety agencies and automakers to approve the chemical for use in cars. It passed the protocols necessary for the European Union to declare that new and significantly revised cars from 2013 onward needed to use R-1234yf, and mandated that every car as of 2017 must use it.
Enter Daimler AG. The automaker created a head-on collision test with a B-Class at their Sindelfingen test track that would lead to the pressurized refrigerant being sprayed on the engine. The result in 20 out of 20 test was that the refrigerant burst into flames as soon as it hit the hot engine, while Daimler says that R-134a does not catch fire in the same test. Another unexpected result of the R-1234yf test was the release of hydrogen flouride, a chemical far more deadly to humans than hydrogen cyanide, emitted in such amounts that it that turned the windshield white as it began to eat into the glass.
Said a Daimler engineer in a Reuters piece, "It was scarcely believable. The most complicated lab tests conducted using the most sensitive measuring instruments around found nothing and all we do is drive a car around a couple of times, open a tiny hole in the refrigerant line and the next thing you know the car is on fire." So Daimler said it wouldn't use the refrigerant, and it recalled the cars it had already shipped with R-1234yf.

VW recalling 2.64M vehicles worldwide over engine, light issues

Thu, 14 Nov 2013

Volkswagen is staging a massive, worldwide recall that's already grown from 1.68 million to 2.64 million vehicles and covers three different issues across a number of vehicles. We already reported on 61,000 Tiguans getting recalled over lighting issues - that was just in the US. Globally, however, VW will be recalling 800,000 Tiguans, according to Automotive News, with the focus on CUVs built between 2008 and 2011. The issue with the Tiguan relates to a simple fuse swap, so this is rather unremarkable, aside from the sheer number of vehicles being fixed. The real, troubling issues relate to gearboxes and pickups.
239,000 Amarok pickups (pictured right) are being recalled over fuel leaks, while 1.6 million vehicles are being recalled to swap the synthetic oil in dual-clutch transmissions with mineral oil. Now, the transmission issue is one for the global Volkswagen Group to address, not just the VW brand - vehicles from Audi, Škoda and Seat use the same seven-speed DSG and are covered under the recall, as well.
Why the switch from synthetic to mineral oil? Apparently, using the synthetic oil in a DSG and then subjecting it to stop-and-go conditions or heavy loads in a hot and humid climate can lead to electronic malfunctions, according to a Volkswagen press release. The switch, from the sounds of it, is largely a preventative measure.
