Description

Lot #674.2 - This is the one of the greatest pieces of VW collectibility. This original California 23 window was recently restored and updated with features that make it a pleasure to drive. Upgraded to a 1600cc dual port engine with 12-volt electronics, rebuilt transmission, front disc brakes added for safety and bettering stopping, new tires and wheels, correct 100% wool headliner and German square weave carpet throughout. All new rubber seals, safari windows, pop out windows, interior chrome latches, handles and Hartz clot slide back roof skin. The list goes on and on. The attention to detail is obvious when you look at this bus. All new polished trim makes this Sealing Wax Red over black Samba bus stand out from the crowd. Lowered with the right California stance. One of the most sought after collectible VW's and considered by many as the "Holy Grail" of Volkswagen.
