1961 21-Window VW Bus from Vintage VW Cars
From time to time I like to offer a vintage VW bus for sale (or two, or three.. I can't stop adding them to my collection, but I'm running out of room!). (Look below for the newly finished 23-Window Samba!!) So before you spend hours searching for a bus on Craigslist take a look at what I have available here. I am always on the look out for a good project or restored bus and I have been collecting, restoring and selling VW's for over 20 years.
VW microbuses are getting harder to find and that, combined with their desirability, is making them very collectible. If you are new to collecting classic VW buses let me know how I can help you find the right bus for you. And if you have any type of VW bus you'd like to sell in 2018 feel free to run it by me! 612-805-2428.
Right now is a perfect time to get your classic Kombi out for this seasons road trips. One of our last happy customers thought so too as she took home our beautiful 1973 Bay Window camper bus VW "Weekender".
I recently sold my own 1959 Double Door Panel van as well so if you love VW bus photos there is plenty to see here. But, if you don't picture yourself driving one of our buses check out a featured VW Bus on eBay in some of our featured bus auctions.
An old Volkswagen Type 2 microbus really brings out a nostalgic feeling in all of us and even if you didn't grow up with one they are easy to fall in love with. Now is a great time to buy an air-cooled VW van because the values are going up (While it is harder and harder to find a cheap VW bus your best bet is the selection of VW Bus auctions with no reserve below)
Sit back and enjoy the fine selection of vintage Volkswagen buses we have featured, buy your next classic Bus, then pack your camping gear and hit the road!
I have a unique opportunity for you - have a 1966 21 Window Bus finished the way you want it! I have a number of restoration projects going so I tried something new with a previous project - let the buyer have final say on finishing the bus. It was a fun experience for both myself and the new owner so I am doing another one.
The bus up for sale is a rare 1966 21-Window walk-through sunroof model with front bucket seats allowing you to walk from the front all the way to the back of the bus. All rust repair is finished so all that is left is some body work and choosing the interior and paint colors.
This cool '65 project Bus was recently sold to a new owner who will potentially bring her back to life! The engine is an H code engine that looks to be numbers matching. The bus starts and runs and shifts but will need work to be a daily driver, and the bus will need brakes. But it runs well enough to make it on to a transport. The emergency brake works.
Record sale prices on these split window VW Buses are helping a lot of these cool old buses to get restored and preserved. I had this in line to restore but I had fund two other Bus restorations. I have restoration contacts so if you wanted to make this a $50k+ Bus I can help. Worldwide shipping available. Solid frame! I have over 100 detailed photos for you to view. Check it out! Thanks for looking!!

The Midwest's best VW restorer Jeff Gagnon of Vintage VW restored this bus over a 5-year period from 2005-2010. After a complete rotisserie restoration with extreme care and love from a true VW enthusiast you can really see how well this very collectible bus turned out.
A new 1776cc engine was installed about 300 miles ago and the bus has about 1500 miles on it since the resto was finished. Originally Chestnut Brown over Sealing Wax Red, this bus was painted the '58 and later colors Beige Grey over Sealing Wax Red to really make that red pop.
