High bid of $55,000 at 2018 Mecum : Monterey. (did not sell)
The utilitarian beginnings of the Volkswagen Microbus, introduced in 1950, gave way to an extensive Type 2 lineup included a variant to suit every need from the all-business panel delivery, Kombi and pickup to the Deluxe camper, and the Microbus.

This particular 1961 Volkswagen Microbus was given a no-expense spared nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration that took place over the course of two years. It was given an uprated 1600cc dual-port flat-4 engine that has been driven less than 100 miles since the restoration was completed. It has a split-case 4-speed transmission and RGB reduction gearbox rear-wheel drive. It is finished in the original factory color combination of Mango Green and Sea Gull Grey. It has a German Mohair headliner and period correct interior panels and seat covers color combination.
