This sweet 1964 Double Cab is located in the state of Florida.
Its been there for less than a year and came from Southern California
where it had spent most of its life.
It is a very clean and very solid example that is wildly cool.
The truck overall is very stock in appearance with the exception of the
suspension drop and the 17" smoothie wheels.
Really a great look and a very desirable truck.
One of the great things about this example is the history and all the
receipts for work done over the years.
This receipt for the suspension and mechanicals totals over $5000 and
this work is less than a year old
and the mileage put on it is very minimal.
Narrowed beam, disc brakes all the way around, drop spindles, all the
hardware, new tires and more.
This, along with the 17" smoothies and tires, the new canvas tilt
shipped here from England...the list goes on and on.
A lot of money has been spent on this truck recently and it is
seriously well dialed in and ready for use.
There is old registration slips that track ownership back a long way.
This receipt dates back to 1970!
The Bus was original sold in Santa Barbara California...
The whole history is here.
OK...the paperwork is cool...but how about the hardware...
The paint and body is not flawless but it is very nice.
Small details show minimal wear.
The underside is very solid.
The big 17" wheels tuck in ever so nicely.

The wheels are simply awesome.

The canvas tilt and canopy is a great addition to the truck.
There are some minor paint inconsistancies here and there...paint on

A very desirable model, very solid, with known history
and a mild style modification with the drop and wheels.
A very nice Bus indeed!
