Rare and recent 2 1/2 years fully nuts and bolts restored example of this conversion tribute 21-window Samba with skylight windows and cloth sunroof! This a highly desirable restoration and conversion tribute to a collectible Type 24 Bus (Deluxe 9 passenger Microbus). The body is razor straight and all the door and panel fits are original and as they should be. Fitted with highly desirable ‘original German’ Safari front windows. The original 1500 single carb 4 cylinder engine was completely rebuilt and is matched to a 4-speed manual transaxle. During the restoration, the complete drivetrain was refurbished, including the engine, gearbox, differential and reduction boxes as well as a new carburetor was installed along with a vacuum advanced electronic ignition distributor, ignition coil, spark plugs and wires. The suspension, steering and braking systems were also refurbished with new parts as well as the 12-volt electrical system. Finished in the classic two-tone theme of ‘Pearl White’ top and ‘Titan Red’ bottom exterior it features eight chrome framed panoramic samba windows, a retractable ragtop canvas sunroof, a split windshield with safari windows, a wider trunk lid and a roof rack and ladder that combines stainless steel and wood. The interior features a walk-through concept with seating for seven, a double floor and a Samba model clock. It rolls on 14-inch painted wheels with chrome hubcaps. The scope of this project was to carry out the restoration, having as reference the classic models manufactured in Germany in the 1960s. To do this successfully, the Technical Check List of TV – H Certification from Germany was adopted as a technical standard reference with the restoration being completed by Kiekhofel Auto Parts and Restoration.
