VW MicroBus Limousine

|
This 60’s MicroBus limousine made a special appearance at the VW Bus Exhibition in Hanover earlier this month (October 5 to 9) to celebrate the Microbus’ 60th anniversary. We don’t know any specific details about the MicroBus stretched limo but it certainly goes down as one heck of a cool car in our books. Can you imagine what it would be like owning a vehicle like the MicroBus limo in 70’s; totally orgylicious to say the least… -More images after the jump

wow; I hope that thing has a small block hidden somewhere. My splitie is pretty slow as it is and adding an extea 1000 lb. of steel ain't gonna improve things.
Also, moving the center of preasure
another 10 feet ahead of the C of G should make the wake off of the Semis passing you(you passing semis probably not gonna hapen)real interesting. Plasitc pants anyone?

one of the 80's rock bands i think Van Hallen had a bus like this at the 1990 bugorama in orange county california. I have pics of it in my album of shows i've been at.

This Bus was started by Derrek Gregg in Lancaster, CA in the early 90's, he sold it off before finishing it. The new owner didn't do much with it and ended up trading it to Bob Koch (Koch's VW) in Santa Clarita for a restored Oval window bug. Once Bob had it he gave it the full treatment, finishing it off and took it to many VW shows in Southern and Northern California.In the late 90's Bob Koch sold it too Bob Van Hedst (BBT) in Belgium and that's where it is today. Once Bob had it at BBT he did some upgrades to the engine and a few minor repairs, but for the most parts it's the same as it was when it was here in California.

I have an original, non-stretch version of this beauty called the Hippie Limo! It is a 1965 Volkswagen Samba Microbus with a complete original restoration that includes skylight windows, a 5-foot open-air canvas sunroof, a period-perfect interior, and the one modern concession of a 1000-watt sound system. I use it for weddings, date nights, beer and wine tours, etc. in the Denver and Boulder, Colorado areas. Take a look at our vintage retro-mod Wayback machine at http://hippielimo.com. If nothing else, I guarantee it will make you smile!
