Presenting arguably, one of the most well-known and Iconic vehicles among the VW scene is this 1965 types 2 Samba, showcasing its concourse and flawless condition. This exact vehicle underwent a JD Classics “Special commission” 5000-hour program of restoration and tasteful upgrades. Today, this restoration would cost in excess of half a million pounds! This type 2 Samba was acquired by JD classics in 2004 on behalf of a long-term customer with instructions to undertake a full concourse standard restoration. Following completion of the work in 2013, this camper has seen minimal use and was fastidiously maintained by JD classics. It has since sat under lock and key as the cornerstone feature to a private, classic car collection on the Central Coast, NSW.
The sheer attention to detail during this build is unparalleled, leaving this vehicle presenting in an “as new” condition. The restoration process involved a complete strip down of the Kombi to its bare shell, where it was bead blasted and saw full refurbishment or replacement of every single component. A real complete, no-expense spared restoration. Not a single detail overlooked.
This head turning example, features a 2 litre, fast road specification engine paired to a synchromesh 4-speed gearbox. The brakes are vented at the front, the air suspension allows for adjustment of ride height and incorporates an individual wheel by wheel adjustment for optimal levelling when camping on uneven grounds.
The exterior has seen a full bare metal respray and this stunning example rests on chromed wide rim sport wheels. The modern finishes internally and externally compliment this practical build and really set a higher benchmark to the restorations of Kombi’s.
The interior is decked out with satellite navigation, electronically raised pop up LCD/LED televisions with remote control and a digital Alpine Media Received with DVD, Video and CD capability. The retrimming of all panels inside was completed by “Interiormotive” incorporating the fitment of the best materials available at the time. Boasting a pull-out double style bed and a full panoramic sunroof, a roof integrated solar panel system, safari opening front screens/pop out side windows and an electronically raised cooker and sink, this example really ticks all the boxes for any camping enthusiast.
Given the extensive total rebuild of this desirable type 2 Samba, this example would make a welcome addition to any car collection and whether it sits as a showpiece, or put to use on camping grounds, this vehicle was made to be appreciated and offers nothing short of an experience! This extremely rare, highly desirable, factory camper 21 window Samba is priced to sell and ready for new adventures.
