1962 Volkswagen 23 Window Deluxe Microbus 

If you're looking for a bus that you can just sit inside the bus, turn the key and drive, then this is the bus for you. It has been completely gone through for electric and brakes, all new brakes, soft lines and hard lines, all new door seals, new window rubber. Inside new front door panels from Clara installed, new front seat cover from Lenny. Front LH and RH floor sections have been welded in and paint blended so you don’t have to worry about your wallet or phone falling through while you are driving. Lots of OG paint on the interior of the bus. Solid cargo floors.

This bus just arrived at our shop. It is from a new customer who had it at another shop and had a bad experience. It is stories you hear all the time. Client takes it to a restoration shop, the vehicle never gets worked on, and they ask for money. After two years you finally decide your DONE and you pull the project! I feel really bad for the clients when I hear these stories. Look forward to turning the experience from terrible to excellent.  

This 1956 Coral Red Oval bug is finished and heading back home to the (I hope to be proud) owner of this incredible oval bug. As we heard more and more stories of their adventures from this being his car in high school to going on their first date with his wife in this exact bug, to their kids growing up riding in the back. To him having to remove the passenger seat and sit in the back seat because he broke his leg but still had to go to work. Amazing we were able to be a part in this build and we are very sad it is leaving our shop.

Here is a true time capsule with the customers bus sitting his barn for 30+ years. We got the call to do a survivor restoration and came out great. Can't wait until he gets it on the road completely reassembled. 

This came out beautiful. With a slight custom suspension, with an upgrade to disc brakes. Also a complete interior dynomat that really cut the noise from the upgraded motor that really moves up those hills when you need :) Stock 15 inch rims with some white wall tires. 

Original paint Sea blue 1965 Volkswagen 11 window walk-thru bus that is running and driving with all new brake components. All new hard lines, soft lines ,master cylinder, brake shoes and bearings. Would make a great project for someone who wants to putt around town and fix it up at the same time. Does come with front, middle, and a rear seats which is a bonus for a VW bus. It has good frame rails but will need the normal lower 6-12 inch replaced if you wanted it to be a solid bus. The cargo floors need to be replaced for the seat mounts are rusty and barely holding the seats in.

A nice Westfalia subhatch bus that has seen to many bad restorations. With rust everywhere we will do the rust repair the right way. 

What your looking at is a original 23 window microbus that has been sitting in a Washington forest for many many years just rotting away. We are happy we were the ones to get the challange of getting this 23 window back on the road and save it from being parted out. Yes this bus needed hundreds of hours in metal work but Silver Lining did it. First we owe it to the new owner of this bus. He was the one that trusted us to bring this gem back to life. He is a proud owner of a 63 15 window bus and wanted to add to his collection.

Here is a seamed gate 1959 Double Cab project that is for sale. It was started by another gentleman and now it is at our shop. If you are looking for a bullet nose pre 61 double cab you know they are a little rarer to find. WIth it being a solid project we would be able to start on the metal work right away because the bus was already blasted. There is no secrets with this bus. Frame is solid. Need to buy the metal and start welding. We would sell this as is without a restoration if your interested. Please give us a call.
