1956 Wolfsburg 23 Window Deluxe Microbus
Here is a rare opportunity to own a 1956 Wolfsburg built 23 Window Deluxe Samba! With no expenses spared on this restoration. The client wanted us to use as much of the original Volkswagen parts as possible. We were excited to be part of this build and if you’re looking to add an amazing piece of history to your collection this is the one.
With it being manufactured in the Wolfsburg German factory the bus used some parts from the barndoor era. Making it difficult to have all the original parts the bus needed. With the 6 leg middle seat and the flat back front and rear seats, to the correct Sekurit glass, correct green tint speedometer and deluxe0 clock. Not counting the countless funds spent to restore all the original parts. Including the original front emblem being restored, all the popout latches on the bus being rechromed, original front door window latches, restored original exterior door handles with matching locks so there is one key for all, rechromed original interior door handles with the original escutcheons, rechromed original safari latches, repolished original jail bars, repolished original luggage bar and uprights, repolished original coat hooks, the list keeps going. The motor that was with the bus was believed to be the original, but the case was to far gone to rebuild. So we used the next best thing and that is a factory blank case 36HP motor with all the original parts. Then restored the split case transmission and the front beam to stock specs. Running bias ply tires with 15 inch wheels. This bus is a must see and why would you wait 2-3 year to have one restored when you can buy this one already done. Comes with a birth certificate and clean title.
There is always the fear of "what am I buying" when the bus is already restored. We will tell you there is over 6000 photos of the process from start to finish to show everthing that was done and how it was done correct. Come out and visit us and take a look and this beautiful 1956 Wolfsburg 23 Window Deluxe. This truely is a piece of art that is waiting to be enjoyed by its new owner.
