1959 Volkswagen 23 Window Deluxe Microbus

We found this bus in our very own state Portland, Oregon. This one had a battle but the locate guy ended up getting this bus. Puttling it out of a forest we brought his guy home and gave him a really good bath that was over due for 30 years. Once completeing that task we had a great client of ours buy it from us to do a full turnkey restoration. With it looking good from far it was far from good. With all the windows being in the bus it did alot of sweating and did a great deal of damage to the interior. Nothing we are not used to so we just rolled up our sleeves and started in.

This bus is now off to new adventures. It was sitting rotting away for 30 years and it got a new chance at life. Hope to see it in shows and on the road in the future.
