Description

Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale August 17th - 19th, 2017 at Russo and Steele\'s 17th Annual Monterey, California Auction. Please contact us for more information. This factory 23 Window Deluxe Microbus was purchased new in Wuerzberg, Germany on September 19th, 1962 and was shipped to the United States on May 5th, 1969 by a US military sergeant who was a VW enthusiast. He owned, used and loved this bus until sometime in the 80s when it was sold to another VW enthusiast who planned to restore it but that process really never began. In 2012 a 3 year old nut-and-bolt concourse style restoration began and has since been restored to a high level. All original parts used on this restoration are either NOS new original stock, rebuilt, re-chromed, re-painted, or polished to a high standard. 1963 was the last year VW produced the 23 Window Microbus and has always been held in high regard among VW enthusiasts around the world as the top of the line model known as the Sondermodell, meaning Special Edition in German and more commonly known as the Samba! Every possible effort was made during this restoration to outline every detail from the Sigla glass to the last KMAX bolt.
