The Bus has been a fixture in the Southern California VW scene for several years now
and it's unique paint colors and fantastic accessories have always been a crowd pleaser.


One of the coolest parts about this Bus is that it has really become more than just "another Bus" at the shows.
Toys and models and T-shirts, posters and stickers and even a hand made model by the German artist Kunze have been made!


This is the Kunze model... hand built by a wonderful German craftsman that has become an icon in the
European scene for many years.

In the back is all restored as original in grey...cab divider is in place between cab and cargo.
A custom shelf has been built along the long wall that has storage below and doubles as a bed for sleeping if needed.
No modifications have been made to the Bus to install this, so it is easily removed, but it is well built and
wonderfully practical.


Check out the KDF style logo hubcaps and the hand lettered weight markings on the wheel arch.
The "model" here is none other than Cal Look legend Ron Fleming (who is not included in the sale)


Sit up straight Ron!


Full length roof rack and very rare front and rear "Hurst" bumpers really give it a unique look.


Very nice paintwork...super smooth and solid body.
