***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

A keen angler recently went to Polish tuner Carlex Design (the same folks who did that steampunk Mini Countryman a while back) for a revamp of his Volkswagen Multivan. What resulted is perhaps the most striking - yet fishing-unfriendly - interior we've ever seen in a van. Below the shoulder line, if a surface isn't covered in cross-stitched Alcantara, then it's covered in cross-stitched leather. Even the steering wheel airbag boss. And the seat supports. And the cupholders.
The brown hue of the Multivan's interior is called Criollo, named for an especially fine specimen of cocoa. The finishing touch on the overhaul is a fileting knife that Carlex made for the owner. We imagine he'll use the knife for the marine life, but keep his van far away from it.
The Volkswagen booth at this year's Chicago Auto Show was filled with various special edition models of the Beetle and GTI. In addition to the GTI Wolfsburg Edition, the Volkswagen GTI Driver's Edition helps to wrap up the 2013 model year as VW readies the all-new MkVII Golf next year.
Only 3,000 of the GTI Driver's Edition models will be produced in four-door body style only, and the available color palette will be limited to just Candy White, Carbon Steel Gray and Deep Black. The package will come standard with the GTI's Sunroof and Navigation package, and it will add unique features such as the 18-inch "Laguna" wheels, a golf-ball shift knob, partial leather seats and red-stitching on the carpeted floor mats. Buyers of this package will also get a certificate of authenticity and some GTI swag such as a hat, keychain and parking sign.
Starting price for the 2013 Volkswagen GTI Driver's Edition is $29,695 with the six-speed manual and $30,795 if you choose the DSG - both prices exclude destination charges.
Usually automakers announce changes to their lineup individually on a vehicle-by-vehicle basis, but sometimes it all comes at once - especially when the changes are ones we either expected or might not otherwise notice. That's the path Volkswagen has gone with changes to its US lineup for 2015.
The biggest change is what we already knew: that the new Golf arrives for the 2015 model year, bringing with it the new GTI, Golf R, e-Golf and Golf SportWagen (to replace the previous Jetta wagon). But there are some new details as well.
For starters, Volkswagen has finally confirmed that both the Eos and the Routan - both long rumored to be on their way out - will be exiting this year. The Eos hardtop convertible, pictured above, will linger for one last year, its Sport trim replaced by a new Final Edition with 18-inch wheels, two-tone leather interior and enhanced equipment.
