Fresh rotisserie restoration. This one has factory cold air conditioning too! People love this VW bus. Really, it brings smiles and joy to everyone that sees it. Other than our movie cars, more people have been taking pictures next to this than any other car! It is decked out with all the goodies.- 23 windows, convertible roof, fold out windshields, cyclops light and 3 row seating. This is a Brazillian made VW, it is the same as the original German made 23 window bus. I've seen these sell up to 3 times higher than what we are asking. This will get just as many smiles!

EXTERIOR: This Samba is decked out. It has the famous 23 windows, two luggage racks with a ladder, a sliding convertible roof with a wind deflector and cyclops light. Many of the windows pop open including the two front safari windshields. It has been completely restored, no signs of rust or damage. The paint is smooth and glossy. The two tones are broken up with a polished aluminum band which also enhances the V design in front. The bumpers are painted smooth and glossy. All the glass is real clear, some of it is new. All the gaskets around them has been replaced. The convertible roof is new and functions easily. Mirrors, handles, taillights and the chrome VW in front all look new. It rides on new radial tires, the rims are painted and have all new trim.

INTERIOR: Air conditioning, I didn't even know that was an option until recently. It is brand new inside this camper bus. The entire inside was gutted, prepped and painted white. The 3 rows of seats have new cushions and are upholstered to match the exterior. The door panels are done to match. It has an auxiliary fan, cup holder basket and a tray below the dash. Overhead it has the fresh air ventilation system and new visors. Down on the floor it has new carpet with bound edges. The bench seat folds flat and makes a bed. Overhead is a new white perforated headliner that stretches front to back. It also has nice looking curtains at each window with matching pillows.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The 4 cylinder motor was rebuilt. It fires right up and runs great. It has a factory air conditioning system that was serviced and blows cold. All the components were restored too. The alternator, carburetor, distributor look new. I can see a painted gas tank. The engine bay is all solid metal and is painted gloss blue. There is a new battery and cables.

UNDERSIDE: The chassis was removed and the body shell was literally put on a rotisserie jig. The bottom is all metal and painted blue. The steering and suspension was rebuilt and painted semi gloss black. Shocks were replaced. Brakes were redone, it has disc in front. Factory type exhaust was replaced.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.

**These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year membership.
