Samba Expected to Bring Home $200,000 at Auction


By: Sebastien Bell
Ever since Jerry Seinfeld sold a portion of his collection, and his Microbus outsold some of his Porsches, we’ve known that prices for these hippie-mobiles were preparing to get ridiculous. That’s good news because it means that we normal people get to gawk at perfect Sambas, as owners look to cash in at auctions.
The latest such car, a 1960 Volkswagen Deluxe 23-window Microbus will be on sale on December 6 with no reserve at RM Sotheby’s New York Auction. Even though there’s no reserve, it’s predicted to go for $150,000 to $225,000.
To be fair, it does look like it just left the factory. First sold in LA this Deluxe comes bearing a Volkswagen Zertifikat of Authenticity and a host of options. Options like reversing lights, points for seatbelts, sealed beam headlights, and an imperial speedo.
This example was recently restored by Napa Valley Restorations to original spec, albeit with a few era correct upgrades like factory leather seats, a new old-stock roof rack, and a full coat of clear gloss paint, this Type 2 is a stunner.
Even if $200,000 is a crazy amount of money, we could hardly begrudge someone for spending it on this beauty. Check out the listing if for the gallery alone.
