1963 23 Window Deluxe!

1963 23 Window Deluxe Sunroof Microbus, Fresh, Nice, and Genuine!

Here is an absolutely gorgeous and freshly restored authentic 23 Window Bus in the much-loved original colors of Turkis and Blue White.  This Bus has been authenticated by the Birth Certificate from Volkswagen as a factory 23 Window and additionally confirmed to be a factory Turkis and Blue White color scheme as well.  The quality of the work is far above the norm that you will find as most shops simply will not build them to this level.  This Bus has been driven sparingly since completion and looks and drives great.

The body is very nice, super straight, the paint finish is beautiful, and all of the critical Deluxe bits are present including body trim, rocker spears, bumper trim, jailbars, rear seat luggage bar, coat hooks, Deluxe dash clock, stock 15 inch slotted Bus wheels with Deluxe trim rings, correct slash end bumpers, etc.  Additionally, the Bus is a desirable 6 popout window model with the long spoon latches and it has safari windshields, too.  The underside of the Bus is also beautifully painted, detailed, and features replated original Kamax hardware as well.

The interior is excellent, very faithful to the original Como Green design, and was done by Lenny at West Coast Classics and Octavio of Octavio's Restorations, both of whom are particularly known for their quality interiors.  Details to note include all 3 correct rows of seats in correct pleated upholstery, superb mohair headliner, very nice interior paneling, Sapphire I radio, and a restored Deluxe steering wheel, too.

Mechanically the Bus is all fresh, faithful to stock original, and has been driven just a few thousand miles since completion.  It features a super clean and fresh 1500 single port engine, stock reduction box transaxle, and factory 6 volt electrical system, too. The tires are fresh Firestone 6.40-15 bias plies with the black side walls out and wide white walls facing inward.  If a buyer prefers, the tires could be flipped around to show the white walls.  It has only attended a couple small local Southern California car shows and has yet to be seen at any of the high profile Volkswagen events.  

Overall this is a very well done and simply beautiful genuine 23 Window that is far nicer than most currently available.  Thanks!
