Fantastic looking Volkswagen T1 Samba van from 1973 in a completely new luxury camper version, with a rare Walkthrough, 23 windows, beautiful red / black colour scheme, open sunroof and a beautiful new interior.
This original VW T1 from Brazil was converted in 2021 from a standard van into a beautiful new camper. It is not an original Samba but a beautiful replica with all the details. The two-tone combination "dark red with a black roof". looks very nice.
This T1 has the well-known air-cooled 1500 cc engine with 4 cylinders. The engine runs fine and the transmission shifts properly.
It has a completely new camper interior, no expense was spared. It has all you could wish for in a T1 van, including everything you need for a night’s sleep. The interior in the colour cognac has a luxurious look. A new fridge, sink (incl. water collection in cans), fold-out table, dining table in the van itself, smart storage compartments under the benches, storage compartments in the roof, and of course the seats. The backrest can be laid flat using the well-known "rock 'n roll" system creating a complete bed. The seats and benches are beautifully upholstered with two-tone cream white upholstery with cognac piping, it all matches the rest of the van. The door cards and even the new curtains were made in a matching style. Even the rims are painted in two-tone "red - black", of course with new chrome hubcaps. The new, original chrome-plated Volkswagen logo on the front and a double chrome luggage rack really complete the style of this T1 Samba van.
The van has the rare Walkthrough where you can walk from the living area in the back to the front seats.
Minor paint damage all around and (due to being low on the ground) also on the underside of the front bumper. Please see photos. It is therefore not a newly restored van. This beautiful camper has a Brazilian registration certificate for registration almost anywhere in Europe. Please note, this T1 Samba comes from Brazil. Brazilian work standards are usually less than European ones. There may therefore be some small points that fit or close less well than if a European workshop had done the work. Some work might still need doing, or final adjustments to meet European requirements and your own quality standards.
An almost 50-year-old van will of course have some spots, we suspect the tank gauge does not work. It has a different ignition lock, the ignition key no longer fits on the door locks. This is a private sale and the van is sold "as is"; warranty therefore does not apply. The van must be picked up within 14 days after the end of the auction.
