1963 VW "Sambabus"
The nine-seat versions with a 25 hp engine were rather weak, but very popular.
The VW completed the series in 1956 with a luxurious version that had roof windows, a folding roof and auxiliary aluminum headlamps and clocks.
By 1963 the buses with back glass had been made. This bus – later named lovingly "Samba" – was in its first life a shuttle bus of the firm Springer.
After many-year nonuse and thorough repair the microbus was ready to be employed even today.
