This superb 23 window Volkswagen was held in a private car museum and was the estate of that Arizona car collector.

This rare early Volkswagen was an original Californian car so was in good shape before it had a complete rotisserie nut & bolt restoration about 8 year ago and still looks and drives like it did the day it rolled out of the factory. All original VW German parts had been reconditioned and mostly retained throughout like; re-chromed original VW Headlight Trim rings, Sekurit glass, Kamax bolts, etc. Original Sealing Wax Red/ Beige Grey Bus. Concours ready immediately!

The current owner has the original Volkswagen Germany Certificate of authenticity for this 23 window Volkswagen, also service & sales documentation.

With 60 miles on the odometer its obvious this bus has never been driven much and has spent most of its later life on display inside the museum building.
