The Micro Bus was powered by a 1,500-cubic-centimeter, overhead-valve, horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine that could produce an adequate 40 horsepower. It rode on a 94.5-inch wheelbase, was suspended by a semi-elliptic leaf-spring suspension with shocks and coil springs, and had four-wheel drum brakes. The rarest variant, the 21-Window Micro Bus, is in many ways considered the ultimate example. It was delivered new to Rome, Italy, and it still wears its original Rome license plate, 822241, which was first registered on April 1, 1965. This example is finished in a two-tone color scheme of red and white, and the interior is finished in matching red and white vinyl with red carpeting.
