Luggage Area Panel - 55-63 w/ bench seat   Price: $50 bare or $90 grey
221 663 405 A - Covering - luggage compartment from Chassis No. 20- 117 902 up to 1 144 281

The standard microbuses came with a millboard panel above the engine, behind the back seat. This panel came originally only in the standard microbuses (type 22). Deluxes had carpet. Kombis and panels were bare as standard equipment.
However, you can install it in any model, to help quiet down the bus.

The price is $50 when ordered with the Uber-Kombi set
The price is $90 when ordered alone.
These prices include the panels painted in commercial grey with grey tape at the front edge.

Having it painted to match an microbus interior in turkis green, basalt grey, caramel etc is also available, as a special order.

Please let me know your zip code if you are interested in having this shipped to you.
Dimensions of box for luggage panel is ~ 34"x61"
Shipping a one piece long panel in the same box barely affects the shipping cost.

This ad is for the version that fits 55-63 bench seat buses.
It is not notched for the spare tire well.
It fits great, just like the original. But is not ratty like the originals you tend to find.

This panel will NOT fit 64 & later (wide hatch) buses.
Please see my other ads for the 64-67 version.
See my other ads for buses with spare tire well in the back (generally that is the walkthrough version).

When installing this, remove the back rest of the back seat. Have the panel square with the bus with the drivers side resting on the bottom of the backseat, and lifting the passenger side up slightly. Slide it straight back keeping it square with the bus, then drop it down once it clears the gas filler bump.
It is very tricky to install if it is angled sideways, but easy if you keep it square with the bus, and the passenger side slightly lifted. :)
Originally, there were tar board strips glued in between the ribs on the luggage deck, before this panel was installed.

The panel is pre-drilled for screws in the og locations. Use 8 normal interior panel screws with trim washers, not included.
