Looky what is on the Sacramento Craiglist car by owner section: a 1964 11-window VW Bus in good condition (especially considering what you usually see out there!). In case it’s taken down, here is a copy of the ad, and some photos:
“1964 11 window Volkswagen Bus. Professionally rebuilt 1907cc engine by specialist Gary Herrod, rebuilt in March 2014. Dual 36mm Dellortos with K&N filters, Scat forged crank and rods, 2qt oil sump and filter, new AS41 case. Rebuilt Rancho transaxle with taller gear ratio than stock. Dual German master cylinder installed. It is not cancered, and I have provided pictures of one of the dog-legs. There ARE a couple of pin-hole rust holes in rocker channels under the double doors and a bit on the driver’s side (also have included photo), there were pin holes in the front floor, but front and cargo floors have been POR-15’d (March 2014). I can provide before and after photos of this if you are interested, as proof that the floor is good.
I have owned this car for over 20 years, though it did sit for the last eight. The tires were new eight years ago (right before I parked it) and have fair tread, but they have been sitting so I can’t guarantee their life-span. Front seat has been re-upholstered, the rear seat is still original and in fair condition with small rips. It is clean – it was apparently in an accident and someone used Bondo in the rear but it really could have been addressed at the time without Bondo. The car is currently in old primer red. This Bus is registered and a daily driver.
This is an excellent prospect if you are ready to customize your own Bus the way you want it. It has a lot of potential, is solid, and already is in good working condition.
Please contact me via EMAIL ONLY. If there isn’t interest in the next couple of weeks, I will have it painted, interior installed, and windshields replaced (they are cracked) and the asking price will be raised. I would really prefer to sell local and don’t wish to ship it. Cash only.
Please contact me if you would like more photos of the Bus (specify what photos, please) or video of the Bus running if you would like to hear the engine. Or meet with me to view it in person.”

In other news, the SNORE Ridgecrest race last weekend was purported to be one of the roughest tracks in the history of that race. You can read race re-caps at the forum HERE.
