This 1965 Volkswagen Microbus De Luxe is the enduring icon that you've always dreamed of having. It has been restored less than 1,000 miles ago to be the bright 13-window VW Bus have the cool-cruising vibe inside and out that will make going to the Sunday car show feel like a vintage road trip.

The two-tone Velvet Green and Blue White is the kind paint you'd expect from the factory in the '60s. In fact, this is the car's original color, and we have the VW Certificate to prove it! But it has the telltale luster that lets you know there has been a solid modern investment. It's a truly coordinating two-tone with the bumpers and steel wheels painted the Blue White. The wheel covers, side mirrors, bezels, and De Luxe's bumper trim are all part of a solid investment in the brightwork. And of course, we all love the large polished VW emblem that highlights the iconic the dipping "V" front end. But what really steals the show is the De Luxe's trim line that encircles the whole vehicle and has a minty green streak in the middle that goes nicely with this classic's colors. So while these are known for their robust simplicity, the details on this nicely restored example remind us how artful VW really was.

The interiors were not often too vibrant from VW, and the original gray upholstery is not what your nostalgia expects. That's why the restoration not only made everything feel fresh, but also upgraded this to a Como Green and Phosphor two-tone. It's a detail-oriented package, so you get the correct dual-spoke steering wheel with Wolfsburg crest, single VDO gauge, and the De Luxe's correct clock in front of the passenger. The number of windows has a direct correlation to the value of a classic VW Bus, and you instantly understand why as you look over the rear. The upgraded two-tone seats and side panels really seem to glow thanks to all the light let in by this 13-window setup. Of course, even with a show-worthy Bus, you want it to be useful. That's why you have robust black carpeting, two full rows of rear seats, dual dome lights, and bars protecting the windows in the cargo area.

The engine bay is ultra-tidy, and it's a reminder this was restored less than 1,000 miles ago. So we know you'll even be showing off this 1200cc motor. In fact, as you look at the undercarriage photos, this reminds you of the investment in quality over every inch of this Volkswagen. And while this is ultra-clean, it's also truly made for driving. You've got fresh belts, wires, and other supporting components, and this is now a 12-volt system with electric ignition. So it fires up easily and runs nicely. Plus, it's linked to the sturdy and versatile four-speed manual transmission, which allows you to get the most out of the motor. It's an unbeatable package that provides that hypnotic air-cooled soundtrack we all love.

Complete with maintenance records, this is the premium Volkswagen Type 2 that has the crisp and clean look of something truly special. So if you like a classic that commands attention, call today!
