DeLuxe Wagon
Chassis #: 5030699
Sold for $99,000 at 2013 Gooding and Company - The Amelia Island Auction.
The word Volkswagen literally translated to 'the people's car.' The Volkswagen Type 1 was introduced in 1938 and soon became known as the 'Bug' or 'Beetle.' The VW Type 2 was launched after World War II, on March 8th of 1950. The Type 2 served many purposes, including campervan, ladder truck, passenger bus, and even ambulance. It went by many names including Microbus, Camper, and Eurovan.

This 1965 Volkswagen 21-Window Bus left the factory finished in sealing-wax red with silver-beige upper body accents. The 21 Window model was produced from 1964 through 1967, and was dubbed the 'Samba.' It is believed that this bus spent most of its life on the West Coast and was purchased by its current owner in 2011. Prior to that, the vehicle had at some point been painted blue, and then the previous owner painted it orange and kept the bus in California for over 12 years. In addition to a color change, the previous owner installed a new correct replacement engine and a Freeway Flier transmission.

The current owner treated the 21 Window Bus to a meticulous restoration where it was returned to its original color. Every item on the bus was either restored or replaced with parts correct to the model. The new engine was removed and detailed, all gauges including the clock were rebuilt or replaced with correct parts, a new wiring harness was installed, and a sunroof complete with mechanisms was fitted with all-around new seals. The glass was refinished and interior upholstered in silver and beige vinyl. The bus has a rare middle seat.

The bus is powered by a 1600cc four-cylinder engine fitted with a single carburetor and offering 40 horsepower. There is a four-speed transaxle transmission and four-wheel drum brakes.
