Going down the custom route when building a classic can be a daunting task, sure it would suit your tastes but the moment you have to make way for another project will it be an easy sell? This 1967 Volkswagen Bus Restomod we have today is a custom job done right and is built to turn heads as you drive by and win car shows with its tasteful upgrades.
The Volkswagen Bus and the Beetle will always go down as 60s icons, they represent all that was great and is demanded by collectors worldwide. Looking around and you would note that most Volkswagen buses sport two-tone color themes with both colors being lighter shades, it's what's perceived to work with the bodywork and the common route to go down. This 1967 Volkswagen Bus Restomod flips the script and sports a unique black and gold exterior that just works so well when you look at it. The body is in great shape with the can reportedly still sporting safari windows for that original look and feel. Matching the cool exterior is two-tone aftermarket wheels that sport Porsche center caps and gives viewers a treat for what's to come. The interior of this 1967 Volkswagen Bus Restomod continues the black and gold theme and also sports a diamond stitched interior with black leather and gold piping for added effect. Make your way to the back and your passengers are treated to a table installed that folds up and is placed between the two rear bench seats. To top this whole affair, this van also reportedly has seen an aftermarket A/C installed to cool the cabin down and a stereo installed to pump out peace, love, and great music.
Keeping aside the uber-cool paintwork and the lovely interior, the engine bay is where the real party trick resides. Powering this 1967 Volkswagen Bus Restomod is not a Volkswagen powertrain but a bigger and better 2.0L 4 cylinder air cooled flat head Porsche motor. The Porsche motor still retains its air-cooled engine format but helps this classic Volkswagen Bus to push out more performance and is reported to have run less than 100 miles since the engine swap. Power is sent to the rear wheels of this Bus though a four-speed manual transmission.
