Description
Lot #746 - This Resto-Mod VW original 21-Window Samba Microbus is finished in its original Lotus White color, a very limited-production factory color. The bus was a "barn-find," originally from California, that underwent a full nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration performed by world-renowned VW bus restorer Robert "Bob" Cook from Cookers Restorations. His mission was to build a true "VW Bus Resto-Rod" maintaining its original unaltered body, frame and interior with the focus on custom mechanical component upgrades. This bus has gained worldwide recognition and admiration, being featured in the U.S. Hot VWs Magazine (cover car) and in France by Super VW magazine. The build was done with an unlimited budget using the absolute highest quality of parts available and approximately 1,000 hours of labor dedicated. It has traveled less than 100 miles since its completion while being proudly shared and displayed at premier national show events. Some of the key Resto-Mod build details include an 1835cc performance-built engine with dual 45 mm Dellorto carbs, Scat rockers, Cima 92 mm pistons/cylinders, CB performance crank, 041 ported performance cylinder heads and a stainless-steel performance A1 sidewinder exhaust system. The performance-built transmission and a Stage 1 clutch kit, along with a 200 mm lightweight flywheel, were installed. The full custom suspension was built by Bob Cook, with all upgraded steering and brake components all sitting on custom 15" chrome Torker rims.
