This Volkswagen Deluxe '23-Window' Deluxe Microbus is a nine-passenger vehicle that has been given an intense, no-expense-spared, comprehensive restoration. It is finished in its original color scheme of Chestnut Brown and Sealing Wax Red (L 53), just as it left the factory when new. It has the original taillights, reflectors, and steel-pressed bumpers. It has the correct light brown upholstery with correct mohair headliner. There are interior door handles, window cranks, and sliding rag handles. During the restoration, it was fitted with a Barndoor steering wheel, original ambulance fan, and a high-quality sound system with Bluetooth. Front and rear safari windows have also been added.

The engine has been upgraded to 1,953cc and offers nearly 100 horsepower.
