The Volkswagen Kombi van (1950-1967) started a vehicle revolution that has lasted more than half a century; it influenced multiple generations. It's been said the Volkswagen Kombi van or bus started the minivan movement. To be sure, the VW Kombi has had a long run of popularity worldwide -- a popularity that's now seeing a resurgence.

 

This Volkswagen Type 2 is a nine-passenger example that was acquired by the seller in Brazil four months ago and underwent a 23-window conversion prior to being imported to the US in June 2020. The bus has been refinished in red and ivory over a two-tone brown interior, and its 1.6-liter flat-four is paired with a four-speed manual transaxle. Additional work included installation of a sunroof, dual roof racks, and Safari windshield glass as well as engine, transmission, and brake service. This Samba is offered by the selling dealer in Georgia with refurbishment photos and a bill of sale.

 

The van was repainted in red with an ivory colored roof and bumpers, and was fitted with roof windows, a vinyl sunroof, and pop-out Safari windshields in addition to replacement brightwork and window glass during the work in Brazil according to the selling dealer. Dual roof racks with wooden slats were also added.

 

Body-colored 14″ steel wheels with chrome hubcaps wear Forceum Trideka tires. A brake overhaul reportedly included resurfacing the drums as well as replacement of the wheel cylinders, shoes, springs, and retainer clips.

 

The interior was reupholstered in two-tone brown vinyl and features carpets and a perforated headliner. The body-colored dash houses an older radio as well as instrumentation including a 120-kmh speedometer and a fuel gauge. The five-digit odometer shows approximately 75k kilometers (~47k miles), with the actual total unknown.

 

Nine passengers are accommodated across three rows of seating, with the middle and rear separated from the front by a half-height bulkhead and accessed via swing-out doors on the right. The seats were replaced throughout.

 

The air-cooled 1.6-liter flat-four is said to have been rebuilt with new bearings, piston rings, and fasteners. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transaxle that was also reportedly overhauled.
