1964 Mercedes-Benz 0319 Minibus

A highly original and genuine compact bus; a delight to behold and just the job for the school run or 'jolly boys' outing to Le Mans

Dating 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. The 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.

The 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. We 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”….
