Although the owner of this 1959 23 Window loves it dearly, it is described as far from a collector’s VW. As an example, the body is a blend of panels, a detail that most of us would miss but certainly does result in a lower retail value. The restoration process was thorough, complete from top to bottom. The color selection of sealing wax red and beige grey are beautiful. One of my personal favorites!
This bus does have all the iconic bus owner elements. The safari windows, sunroof, white walls, and two tone interior – all classic 1959 VW microbus! For those VW historians, you see the towel rail bumpers. 1959 was the first year these were introduced.
The details on this bus that I find most fun are beautiful dashboard, steering wheel, and radio restoration. There is just something so iconic about a VW bus dashboard.
