Described as having undergone a complete rotisserie, nut and bolt, no-expense-spared restoration, this bus comes with rare Safari windows front and rear and has been restored to all period correct and original cosmetic specifications and standards.  The Type 2 benefits from a VW modern technology 140hp, 2005 cc new crate engine. The upgraded engine makes it a true pleasure to drive, even if its not exactly period correct (though, in fairness, the correct fully refurbished 1.5-litre flat-four engine was also included in the sale). 151674_Rear_3-4_Web 151674_Engine_Web

A 1958 Volkswagen Deluxe 15-window Type 2, also restored to a high standard, sold for $40,700 at the same auction.  Does this means that more windows means higher value for a microbus?
