1963 Volkswagen Type 2 “15 Window”
The chrome VW emblem of the Volkswagen Type 2 is a symbol of the microbus deluxe.
In order to capture the atmosphere of the era, the body is painted in a single tone and the interior is meticulously repaired using genuine leather chosen by the manufacturer.
A Japanese specialist, after stripping completely of the original paint and rust, carefully coated the sheet metal and painted the chassis black. Repairing minute details and going as far as replacing the springs and the natural palm fiber to reproduce the original feel of the seats, the vehicle has gone through extensive restoration. The engine was updated to a 1600cc dual port. The power supply was changed to 12V, carburetor and ignition peripherals are completely renewed and re-adjusted, making stable idling and powerful acceleration from a low speed range possible.
Many parts, including the odometer with the mile display for US use, the original steering and light covers makes this vehicle desirable both for everyday usage and as a collectible car. If you are looking for a “Type 2 bus” that has seen a rise in demand and value, this is a very attractive example.
