Vehicle Overview

1959 VOLKSWAGEN TRANSPORTER TYPE 2 "DELUXE MICROBUS" ~ "23 WINDOW SAMBA BUS" ~ 1192cc H4 ~ 4-SPEED MANUAL ~ CONCOURS QUALITY RESTORATION ~ ONE OF THE BEST IN THE WORLD! ~ 1959 VW 23 WINDOW SAMBA BUS

 

 

 

 

THIS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING VOLKSWAGEN IS A 1959 23 WINDOW SAMBA BUS. THE 23 WINDOW SAMBA BUS WAS ORIGINALLY MARKETED TO TOUR THE ALPS, AND WAS CALLED THE 'ALPINE BUS' IN OTHER WORLD MARKETS.  ITS MOST NOTABLE CHARACTERISTIC IS THE 8 SKYLIGHT WINDOWS THAT SURROUND A HUGE PANORAMIC SUNROOF, WHICH WOULD CERTAINLY PROVIDE AN AMAZING VIEW OF ANY ELEVATED SCENERY!

NO EXPENSE WAS SPARED IN THE CONCOURS QUALITY FRAME OFF RESTORATION, WHICH WAS PERFORMED BY ISP WEST OF CARSON, CA. THE NUMEROUS 'BEST IN CLASS' AND 'BEST OF SHOW' ACCOLADES ARE SOUND TESTAMENT TO THAT FACT. 95% OF THE PARTS ON THIS VAN ARE NEW OLD STOCK PARTS THAT WERE IMPORTED FROM AROUND THE WORLD, SOME NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND OR DUPLICATE, INCLUDING A NEW OLD STOCK 1192 CC AIR COOLED FLAT 4 THAT MAKES ABOUT 36 HORSEPOWER. THE THREE TONE PAINT SCHEME IS PERFECT, EVEN INTO THE TIGHTEST CORNERS OF THE PAN. FINISHED IN SEALING WAX RED AND CHESTNUT BROWN WITH AN IVORY CAP, THIS VW SURE IS AN EYE CATCHER. NOTHING WAS OVERLOOKED, DOWN TO THE VW STAMPED HEADLAMPS, ORIGINAL GERMAN SIDE VIEW MIRRORS AND CHROME LINING ON THE SIDE VENTS. EVERYTHING IS POLISHED TO A MIRROR SHINE AND LOOKS BETTER THAN NEW.

WEST COAST CLASSIC RESTORATION FINISHED THE INTERIOR TO THE SAME EXACTING STANDARSDS AS THE REST OF THE VEHICLE. UP FRONT, YOU'LL NOTICE A SPEEDOMETER WITH TRIP METER, A BLAUPUNKT STEREO AND A CLOCK. THE THICK WEAVE COCO FLOOR MAT IS A NICE TOUCH, AND ADDS A BIT OF CONTRAST TO THE BLACK RUBBER MATS THAT LINE THE FLOOR BOARD. THE STEERING WHEEL, SHIFTER BALL AND PARKING BRAKE HANDLE ARE ALL A MATCHING IVORY, AND THE SHIFT PATTERN IS EVEN ENGRAVED ON THE SHIFTER. THE SLIDING CANVAS SUNROOF WORKS PERFECTLY. THE DETAIL EVEN EXTENDS TO THE HEADLINER, WHICH IS THE CORRECT COLOR AND MATERIAL FOR THE YEAR. THE COAT HANGERS AND ORIGINAL LUGGAGE BARS ARE ALSO IN PLACE.

THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT IS JUST AS SPOTLESS AS THE REST OF THE VEHICLE, AND THE ORIGINAL SERIAL NUMBER PLATE IS IN PLACE TO THE RIGHT OF THE ENGINE.
