1963 Volkswagen 23 Window Samba Bus

Often referred to as simply a "bus," Volkswagen's iconic forward-control van was initially introduced in 1950. It was available in a variety of configurations, ranging from a bare-bones panel van for commercial use to a full-on camper complete with a pop-top roof.

The most popular and desirable of all is the Deluxe Microbus, also known as the Samba. It was considered the most luxurious version, equipped with large a fabric sunroof, two-tone paint, decorative trim and two pivoting "barn" doors instead of one sliding door. Most notably, they featured 8 additional panoramic windows in the roof, earning the nickname of a "23-window" in reference to the total number of windows.

Sambas were painted in two colors. Usually, the upper part was colored white. The two colored sections were separated by a decorative strip. Further the bus had a so-called "hat" at the front of the van where the roof was just a little longer than the car itself to block the sun for the driver. The windows had chrome tables and the van had a more comprehensive dashboard than the normal Bus.

1963 was the last year of the 23 window versions as later years only had 21 windows. This striking 23 window is finished in Classic White Top with Sealing Wax Red at the body. The interior is a beautiful white. The 1500 engine runs strong and this Bus is fun to drive.
