1964 Mercedes-Benz 0319 Minibus
original and genuine compact bus; a delight to behold and just the job for the
school run or 'jolly boys' outing to Le Mans
from 1964, this fabulous 0 319D bus has been sitting in a private collection for
some time in South Wales with occasional outings for PR, Weddings and TV work.
Finished in green and white, one of the four period two-tone colour schemes
available when new (according to the period brochure included), the interior has
seating for 13 including the driver with side entrance (with wonderful automatic
doors) and a useful boot area at the back.
original 55hp diesel engine looks to have been changed for a more powerful
two-litre diesel, although perhaps a modern Mercedes Sprinter diesel engine
might be the way to go, potential future use depending of course. The bus looks
to be very sound throughout, both cosmetically and internally.
history file includes the charming period sales brochure, original service book
with two stamps dating from 1967 and 1968, a comprehensive parts catalogue,
partial V5 and a selection of sundry invoices showing that a new temperature
gauge and fuel gauge were fitted in 2012 and a lube service plus repairs to the
braking system in 2011. There are eight old MOT certificates on file, the last
expiring in August 2018 which showed no advisories for that or the previous
couple of years.
love this bus and note that the few others that have sold across Europe recently
have all made six figures. “Have your tickets ready please”….For
