New delivered to Austria, original engine. Recent comprehensive restoration, original documentation available. As an early and desirable split-screen model, this remarkable example of Volkswagen's popular Samba minibus left the Wolfsburg plant on 16 March 1965 and was delivered to Salzburg in Austria on 18 March 1965. The accompanying certificate of the Foundation Auto Museum Volkswagen confirms the original color combination as well as the Matching Numbers engine. The 1.5-liter engine makes about 42 hp and brings the relatively light (1,150 kg) Samba to a top speed of 105 km / h. The vehicle was sold via Porsche KG in Salzburg to the first owner, Mrs. Walburga Wildling from Grossraming. It is worth noting that the attached original type code old style on behalf of Porsche KG, Salzburg, was signed by none other than Louise Pich, daughter of Ferdinand Porsche. Mrs. Wildling kept the samba until 1978, when ownership of Hans Schraml passed under the same address. One can therefore assume that he was a close family member. The vehicle was then handed over to its third custodian, which kept it until 1995, when it was deregistered. A comprehensive restoration of the bodywork, the mechanics and the interior was carried out in 2014. The corresponding bills amount to around € 170,000 and the result can be described as stunning in every respect. As a result, it was judged by an independent expert to be in 'Condition 1'. Rarely have these coveted Samba microbuses come to market in such a beautiful state as this exceptionally original example. It has been reworked in its original color combination and retains its original engine. Important original documents, including the Austrian type code of the old style and a service booklet are available.
