I usually don’t get too fired up about restored VW vans. They aren’t really sporting in nature and just not that interesting to me. Then the fellow down the street started to restore one. It was a fascinating process to behold, every time I left the house I had to stop and chat him up. Little by little he made his way through the arduous process of rebuilding one of these vans. His finished product is a thing of beauty, much like this 1964 Kombi.

I have not seen one of these in as long as I can remember and I am certain it was nowhere near this nice. Kudos to the seller on a fantastic restoration, pictures, and description.
Bidding currently sits at $17,750 with no reserve, this van will sell. $20k seems reasonable but I would not be surprised if this van fetched more.
