For Sale at Auction: 1973 Volkswagen Bus in Las Vegas, Nevada

Vehicle Description

This custom 1973 Volkswagen Samba Type 2 23-window Microbus re-creation has undergone a 12-month professional rotisserie restoration by Overland Imports. Nothing has gone untouched and no expense has been spared. As part of the 23-window re-creation, this bus has been fitted with correct belly pans, providing added chassis rigidity, like the original 23-window German buses. The pans are an important structural component when a bus is upgraded with a large sunroof opening and roof windows. It also came factory equipped with a limited-slip differential. The bus is finished in two-tone colors with an Ivory White top and a Turquoise bottom over a white and gray interior. It features safari front windows, two sets of pop-out windows on each side, a full center retractable ragtop sunroof, double cargo side doors and seating for nine. The front and rear wooden roof racks and ladder provide for additional storage. Powered by a 1500cc 4-cylinder engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission, the complete drivetrain has been rebuilt, including the engine, transmission, and transaxle. The engine compartment was color-matched, and a graduated crank pulley was installed along with an adjustable tensioner and generator pulleys. A new carburetor was installed and a new distributor, ignition coil, spark plugs and wires. The suspension, steering and braking systems have also been rebuilt with new parts throughout. The electrical system was completely redone, from the wiring harness to the generator, voltage regulator and battery. This 23-window re-creation rides on Lotus off-white wheels with chrome hubcaps wrapped in whitewall tires. **TITLED AS 1973 VOLK KOMBI**
