West Coast Classics are proud to present a beautifully presented example of this 1975 Volkswagen Bus conversion tribute 23 Window Deluxe Samba Microbus with skylight windows and cloth sunroof and which was reportedly restored by a renown Brazilian restoration shop!
This a wonderful driving restoration and conversion tribute to a collectible Type 24 Bus (Deluxe 9 passenger Microbus). Most Deluxe Microbuses were ordered as Samba models (a $160 option) that included a sliding canvas sunroof flanked by 4 skylight windows on each side of the roof (that's a 23 window bus through model 1963 and a 21 window bus starting in model year 1964). The deluxe Microbus was Volkswagens top-of-the-line transporter.
These iconic Type 24 Bus (Deluxe 9 passenger Microbus) were originally marketed for touring the Alps with small skylight windows embedded into the roof for added viewing capabilities and were manufactured with the highest trim level available which included trim strips along the beltline and a dash clock! Most Deluxe Microbuses were ordered as Samba models (a $160 option) that included a sliding canvas 'Golde' sunroof flanked by the 4 skylight windows on each side of the roof.
The bus is fitted with highly desirable 'original German' Safari front windows and wooden roof rack and finished in a striking two-tone color combination of Red and White paint and the bus has a Black & White interior!
The engine is an updated 1600 single carb engine and this bus must be driven to be fully appreciated - the engine is extremely strong and responsive with excellent oil pressure and no oil leaks and which sounds absolutely magnificent, the original factory 4 speed transmission shifts smoothly through all the gears, the bus brakes great and the engine temperature always remains cool.
