A full mechanical overhaul including a full engine service
Runs on original 1500TP, new carburettor, vacuum advance distributor and no poor after-market components.
15” steel wheels, stainless steel hubcaps; UK headlights, rims, fish eyes, rear lights, German steering box, new heat exchangers and heat tubes, silencer, manifolds, tin-ware, fan housing, full braking system, all cylinders, shoes, hoses, callipers, brake lines, fuel lines, clutch, cables, stub axels and so the list goes on & on .. literally into thousands of £££’s
The not so good bits are that although fully secure, the cargo door locking needs slight attention and the replacement passenger door window frame patiently awaits its paint cover.
In recognition of her birthplace a new interior in ivory and ‘Original Brazilian Coffee-Bean Sacks’ livery is now a delightful space and to further enhance the driving experience, taking pride of place ‘up-front’ is a resplendently restored ‘OS’ German steering wheel that has been professionally recoated in resin with contrasting horn button and retaining every single original etched glass.
Two upholstered benches have been installed to offer the perfect opportunity to enter the lucrative wedding / prom business whilst keeping the option of still enjoying her as originally intended for holidays and day’s out.
The interior need completing with curtains, (material included) a headlining and a bit of tlc to finish, leaving open the prospect for you to design a completely bespoke interior of your dreams.
To sum up ... this bus is unspoiled and ready to home a new mobile business; Gin Palace, Ice Cream, Calpirinha & Cachaça Bar or of course Coffee.
Also included is a breathable waterproof cover that has door and engine lid zipped panels for ease of access
Would suit a fettler, ( Haynes manual supplied) enthusiast, collector, an entrepreneur, or someone who simply wants to drive away and enjoy a wonderful memory creator.
