Texas Classic Cars Of Dallas is proud to showcase this nicely restored 1971 VW Bus. This Volkswagen bus has been restored but it still holds tons of potential. The 4 Cylinder engine runs strong and moves this bus with ease, the transmission shifts through gears with ease. This is a very solid bus , the suspension rides great and smooth. The bus was recently repainted with an aftermarket paint to the close match to Elm Green . There is no body damage to any part of the bus , the front end has never been worked on like many other VW buses out on the market& the sliding door opens and closes with ease . The paint job looks like a quality paint job, and All the chrome shines and looks like new , back to the 70s , this is a good looking and solid VW bus. Interior has new upholstery. The headliner was also re done in white vinyl that looks great. The front seats & rear seats have new covers on them that look mint and match the bus in green and white.
By the era of the 1969-1971 Volkswagen Bus, VW's lovable, adaptable rear-engine box had become an iconic on America's highways and in its driveways. The Volkswagen Bus had gained acceptance among suburban families, car poolers, and of course, counterculture types. The passenger-carrying Station Wagon model of the Volkswagen Bus had long been a favorite of the young and young-at-heart, and "hippy vans" painted up in psychedelic designs were a fixture of the 1960s. Still today , these VW buses are becoming more and more sought after. The Volkswagen Bus's stopping ability got a boost for 1971 with the introduction of front discs and a 20-percent increase in the lining thickness of the rear drums. VW also installed a regulator in the rear brake circuit that functioned like an early anti-lock system to help prevent premature wheel locking in hard stops. Wheel width also increased by half-an inch, to 5.5 inches.
The Microbus; 9 Passenger, also known as an "11 window bus, was essentially a Kombi with a much nicer interior (vinyl or cloth instead of the grey masonite) and 2-tone exterior paint choices. Like the Kombi, the rear seats could be removed, but the Microbus was primarily designed to carry passengers, not cargo. The 9-passenger Microbus has a "bulkhead" front bench seat and the middle and rear seats are also full bench seats, enabling 9 people to travel in style! We are not sure how long ago this VW was restored, but it looks like it was not that long ago. The overall condition is very good.
