You want some thing more rare than a 23 or 21 window? Well here it is. This is a one of a kind optioned
85k original mile 1967 double door camper.

1967 Double factory door camper. 4 year restoration. Only 80k absolutely original miles. I bought this van from the second owner here in the Pacific North West. This bus was originally delivered to Hawaii. The low original mileage is due to the van being on a small island for many years. The van has its factory M Code plate which verifies the factory options and delivery destination. This is a factory ordered double door camper (I have documentation). Most campers ordered in the states went to Sundial, Riviera, EZ Camper for there camping conversion. Any camper delivered to Hawaii was installed by the VW dealership making this a super rare bus with its rare options. The camper kit was factory dealer installed at the VW dealership it was purchased at new in Hawaii. The bus had minimal rust due to being garaged most of its life and being ordered with undercoating which is still in excellent condition. All metal work was professionally done using correct replacement panels. This bus has been fully restored. New 1641 engine. New free way flyer transmission, IRS (no reduction boxes), dual carbs. This bus was stripped down to a bare shell, media blasted inside and out and professionally repainted inside and out including the engine bay using factory early VW bus colors of Sand Green and Palm Green correct single stage paint. Over 80 hours into the restored camping windows alone. 17 inch Escra Raider wheels. The one of a kind interior took me a year working on it off and on to complete. I used the same factory interior panels and colors as would be found in a 64 deluxe. All interior and exterior colors are factory VW paint codes and reproduction interior upholstery finishes. There is less than 750 miles on the complete restoration.

Motor- Less than 750 miles on rebuilt motor. Rebuilt 1641 dual port. Big valve heads, rebuilt dual Kadron carbs, dual high performance air cleaners, new muffler, dual Empi intakes, new fuel and vac lines, new fuel pump, and alternator. The engine bay is spotless as seen in the pictures and was media blasted and professionally repainted as was the rest of the bus. The motor is finely tuned and runs like a sewing machine.

Transmission- Less than 750 miles on rebuilt big nut freeway flyer transmission. (for those of you who don't know, a freeway flyer is a transmission geared higher) These transmissions are a great improvement over stock transmissions and allow you to cruise at highway speeds with ease and comfort. The IRS coupled with the  freeway flyer transmission and higher horse power motor gives you a bus that drives and handles more like a car. The IRS was professionally installed, (The reduction boxes have been removed). New axles and shift bushing. The transmission shifts crisp and precise.

Paint & Body- This bus was completely disassembled and stripped down to a bare shell. The entire bus was media blasted to bare metal in side and out including the engine bay. The bus had dealer installed under coating, so the under carriage and belly pans were in excellent condition and needed no rust repair. The rust repair includes, lower 3 inches of nose, all four cargo door inner and outer lower section, both left and right lower rockers, front floor corners, battery tray on right side. All metal work was done using the finest metal replacement panels and professionally installed by a well know body shop. This bus is completely 100% RUST FREE. The under carriage is spotless. The bus was painted using factory paint colors of Sand Green (L-311), and Palm Green (L-312), these are factory 1955 to 1958  VW bus colors. The paint is over 3 years old and shows no blemishes coming through the paint. The bus was painted using the correct single stage PPG paint finish. A lot of thought and detail went into picking the interior and exterior colors paying tribute to factory correct 1955 to 1964 finishes. The bus was painted completely inside and out including but not limited to the engine bay. The paint looks absolutely gorgeous. The panels are arrow strait and have little to no filler. High end Safari front windows, the frames were completely disassembled and painted the body color. The Hehr windows were completely disassembled, rebuilt and fully polished. The Hehr windows have over 80 hours invested in them alone in polishing and rebuilding them. Both front and rear bumpers are perfect with no dings or previous damage. Both bumpers were completely disassembled and repainted. The factory under coating is still in excellent condition. All new door and window rubber seals through out ect. All new lenses. Dash is uncut and in perfection condition. DYNA Mat was used through out  the entire bus including the entire roof, behind all door panels, floor and engine bay area and doubled up in certain areas. Creative Engineering Safari windows. New door handles, locks, ect. The paint has never been polished and only washed a hand full of times. Hundreds of hours went into the paint and body work alone....

Interior- A lot of time and thought went into the interior design. My goal was to keep all interior colors and finishes correct using interior color and finishes from 1964 options. All interior door panels were ordered from TMI. The colors I picked are factory 1964 colors ordered with standard and deluxe buses. The interior option code is 292 (Basalt Grey and Silver Beige). I chose not install deluxe chrome interior trim as I thought the minimalist look was the way to go and fit my design concept better. All seats, jump seat, and Z bed were completely disassembled. The front seat frames were sand blasted and repainted. All seats were reupholstered by a high end hot rod shop, done to the highest standards. Note, these are not the cheap TMI seat covers, these are custom made by a professional upholstery shop. All vinyl was ordered from TMI to ensure colors are factory correct for 1964. The rear Z-bed springs were replaced with a memory foam padding. All seats have custom memory foam type padding, not the cheap and uncomfortable TMI coconut fiber padding. The goal was to make the seats comfortable to drive on long road trips. The complete headliner and lower half of the interior panels were custom made out of Baltic Birch wood. All panels were carefully hand picked for the desired grain and color. All interior Birch wood was professional cut out using factory templates. Every panel and trim piece received 5 coats of clear varnish. The panels were completely wet sanded in between coats. Needless to say this took an untold amount of hours..... A lot of planning went into installing the headliner making sure no screws were visible. All interior lights and electrical work perfect. New front mat, and wheel well cover mats. All cabinets are original to the bus when ordered new and have the correct 1967 date codes stamped on the ID tag. I used a high end birch wood flooring throughout the cargo area. All cabinets were reinforced with metal brackets to ensure they last another 40 years. All interior cabinets are lined with carpet. All interior brackets, interior hardware, Z bed brackets ect were sand blasted and repainted. All inside window trim was custom fitted.  Plenty of storage under jump seat, z bed, closets ect. I went out of my way to try to hide mounting screws on interior trim and panels, this attention to detail is what sets this van apart from other restorations. I have over $7,000 invested in the interior alone. There is much more work that I did to the interior, I tried to list all the high lights.

Brakes & Suspension- New brake wheel cylinders front and rear. All new soft and hard brake lines, new shoes, all drums were turned, new dual circuit master cylinder. All wheel bearings were replaced or repacked. The brakes have been finely tuned and work excellent. New steering box, KYB performance gas shocks front and rear. IRS rear suspension, (no reduction boxes). The van steers tight, and handles awesome.

Other- 1967 was the first year of 12 volt. Brand new Escra Raider 17 inch wheels, brand new tires. The rear tires are slightly bigger and wider than the fronts to give the van a aggressive stance. Optima battery. Rare VW Rack completely sand blasted and repainted to body color. The rack is worth a $1000 alone. Pivoting safari wiper hinges. The bus has its original M-Code plate. New reproduction seat belts up front. Rebuilt and restored gas tank with new sending unit. Over $500 in Dyna Mat sound deadening material was used through out the entire bus shell. Rare set of factory tools and jack.

My design concept was based on a "what VW should have built concept".  My goal was to build a "greatest hits vw bus" using popular interior and exterior colors, finishes and materials staying true to factory original look and details specific to the era. The drive train was upgraded for reliability, drivibility, comfort, and safety. Only factory correct VW finishes and parts were used during the restoration. The attention to detail is what sets this van apart from other restorations. No expense or untold hours of labor were spared in this one of a kind build. This 4 year restoration was a labor of love. More rare than a 23 or 21 window and much more usable. This van can be used, and was purpose built to tour the country in comfort and style. I have only taken the van to a couple non VW shows and it took home 1rst in its class both times. I originally built this van to keep. Only selling to purchase another collector car. One of the finest restored split window buses in the country. 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.  Feel free to call with any questions.

I can have this bus shipped to your front door at whole sale cost

VW midsize crossover production headed for Chattanooga

Fri, 10 Jan 2014

Potential labor woes aside, it looks like Volkswagen's Chattanooga, TN factory must have done something that impressed the bosses in Germany, because it sounds like the three-year-old factory is set to score a second model.
The factory currently builds the Passat, and has been in the running alongside VW's Puebla, Mexico factory to build a new crossover vehicle, likely based on the CrossBlue Concept. According to Bloomberg, a pair of unnamed sources have confirmed that Chattanooga is the favorite ahead of an official announcement.
When last we heard about the CrossBlue Concept, word was that a production decision had been delayed over concerns about the three-row CUV's business case. That August 2013 story claimed that a decision regarding the CrossBlue would be pushed back until early in 2014, which means we're ripe for some sort of news, whether good or bad.

Volkswagen Group names Paefgen head of classics program

Tue, 04 Oct 2011

You may remember the name Franz-Josef Paefgen. Until recently, the German engineer and executive was head of both Bentley and Bugatti. Before that he was chief executive of Audi, after working for several years at Ford. He technically "retired" earlier this year, but like the cars he helped create, an executive like Paefgen could never really retire. So it should come as little surprise that the Volkswagen Group has named Dr. Paefgen head of its Classic program.
In his new capacity, Paefgen will oversee the historic automobile activities of the entire VW Group, including those of Volkswagen, Seat, Skoda, Audi, Lamborghini, and of course Bentley and Bugatti. It strikes us as a suitable semi-retirement for the man responsible in no small part for the Bugatti Veyron and Bentley Mulsanne, to name just two, and who was decorated in 2006 by the ACO as the "Spirit of Le Mans" for his contribution to endurance racing. Read the official announcement after the break.

Updated J.D. Power APEAL study shines on VW Group, Chevy

Wed, 24 Jul 2013

J.D. Power has just revealed the results of its 2013 APEAL Study, which looks at which brands have the most appealing cars based on sales figures, dealer inventory, brand loyalty, transaction and trade-in prices. The study was revamped for 2013, and places a larger focus on the new tech and infotainment options available to customers. All told, study participants gauged their vehicles on 77 different attributes, delivering a score out of a 1,000 points.
The Volkswagen Group had the greatest success of any corporation, topping the APEAL rankings with the Audi Allroad, Porsche Boxster, Porsche Cayenne, VW GTI and Passat. Chevrolet had the highest number of awards for a single brand, though, with the Avalanche, Sonic and Volt all taking home a prize.
The best brand overall was Porsche, which scored 884 out of a possible 1,000 points. The top Japanese brand was Lexus with a score of 847, while the top American brand was Cadillac, at 841. The best mainstream brand was Ram, which received a very respectable 817. The industry average for this year's study was 795, with 16 brands, all of which were mainstream, falling below the average.
