The VW Samba Bus is one if the most Iconic vehicles of the 20th Century, and for great reason; Take one look at it and you instantly have a grin from ear to ear!!! These Buses are fantastic in the usability, drivability and all around fun times with more thumbs up and honks while driving than if you were in a new Lamborghini! The VW Bus has been around for decades in many different iterations throughout it's life span. The Split Window Multi Window Bus is by far the most iconic long known for it's laid back California lifestyle more often than not with Surfboards and Body boards on the roof, these vehicles have been spotted up and down the Pacific Coast Highway parked while their owners are out surfing for more than 55 years! Easy to maintain and even a fun do it yourself project on the weekends these cars have readily available parts, lots of local mechanics more than willing to work on them at a reasonable rate and your sure to make more good friends driving one of these around than you may even want!! This particular 23 Window Samba Bus has undergone a full no expense spared Nut and Bolt Conversion & Restoration just 167 miles ago! Finished in it's original color scheme of Mouse Grey over Grey Vinyl interior with a full ragtop and aside from originally being an 11 window and now converted to a 23 window, this is as accurate as possible in every detail. This Bus runs and drives fantastic! All doors and compartments open and close properly, she fires right up with no hesitation, the Speedo and Odometer function properly, the ragtop slides open easier than it was probably new and she sounds glorious!!! This is a great opportunity to fulfill those childhood dreams of having the Almighty 23 Window Samba Bus or another opportunity to round out your AirCooled VW collection with this beautiful example!
