1968 Volkswagen Transporter in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

The VW Type 2 Transporter was approved for production by Volkswagen's newly appointed CEO Heinz Nordhoff by May 1949. It quickly blossomed into a myriad of models ranging from the "Kombi" and "Commercial" to the "Microbus" in 1950 and "Deluxe Microbus" by 1951. The fun and festive "Samba Transporter," known in America as the Sunroof Deluxe, was the most luxurious of the Type 2 lineup, with two-tone paint finish, a large sliding canvas sunroof, and no less than 23 windows through 1963 and 21 windows to the end of original Type 2 production in 1967. While the original "split-window" Transporters were phased out in many of VW's markets after 1967 in favor of the updated "Bay Window" line, production of the original Transporter style continued in Volkswagen's Brazilian market. A true enthusiast in Brazil thoroughly customized this original Brazilian-market 1968 Volkswagen Transporter. The van was completely stripped and fitted with the pre-1964 "Samba" 23-window glass arrangement, in addition to the new weatherstripping. It also was refinished in silver using a modern base and clear paint system with multiple color coats. This Brazilian Transporter includes a restored interior featuring factory front seats plus functional three-row rear bench seating - all trimmed in gray vinyl upholstery. Restored brightwork and chromed factory steel wheels with matching hubcaps provide additional appeal. Additional power is delivered by an upgraded 1600cc flat-4 engine mated to a 4-speed transmission. From the Mile-High Collection.
