1963 23w Samba LHD

Postby snapy » Mon Jun 19, 2017 1:00 pm

Time to move on and sell this superb bus, having sold the 13w and the Beetle to scale down and move to the south coast we are now retiring completely from the wedding business, decided to sell both the 11w and the 23w and buy a patina bus or project to enjoy.
Going to put both up for sale and test the market with a view of hanging on to one for the wedding commitments we have up to Sept unless someone down in Hampshire wants to take on the weddings as well.
I'll list them separatley,
The 63 23w has been a wedding bus for a few years.
After being imported from Texas in 2004 by the previous owner she had a comprehensive resto, many in the scene will remember her as the original "pretty n pink" bus displayed in the lower hall at Volksworld show and featuring in volksworld magazine 2005/6

Always dry stored and hardly used we bought her in 2011. In 2012 she won the show n shine back at the Volksworld show and scored highly at Stanford Hall concours d'elegance.
She has been in the wedding business since we owned her and has always been dry stored clocking up ONLY 5700 miles since 2005 and her renovation.

In 2013 she got into a scrape whilst doing a wedding with a yob speeding round a bend and took a side swipe, we decided to use this as an opportunity to change her colour and Spike the paint at Vintage Restorations took on the task and did a superb job.
Below are pics of her when we bought her, her scrape and how she looks now, also links to her repair and repaint thread from her time at Spikes.

1963 April
Heritage birth certificate
Stock running gear
1200 sp
Fire suppression system
upgraded fuel lines
canterbury pitt style interior
curtain track all round
door canopy
ladder
vintage radio fitted and working
CD player/stereo under dash
NOS exhaust from schofields just fitted
MOT

As I'm sure with almost any bus there's always room for improvement and this bus is an excellent improve as you own and enjoy, so if your in the market for fairly sorted stock Samba here it is. If you want to do some wedding work as well you won't find a better more popular bus than this.


Price ? let's say offers over and around £55k or poss trade with a patina bus and see where the market is on this.

PM me for serious enquries only please and to arrange viewing before making offers, bus in Lymington, Hampshire.
