Barndoor deluxe 1955 in Europe BD Samba   Price: See ad
For sale is the youngest Barndoor Deluxe known existing, it was first delivered to France in February 1955 and just had little rust and was painted in Germany about 8 years ago. In contrast to many South American cars, this beauty still has lots of his original metal, that has been the decisive factor for me and decision to buy it. There is hardly a good basis like this anymore. Infos from a previous owner show that the deluxe still has its original floors, bellypans, doglegs, rockers,... with just some small patches here and there, a rocksolid car!
After its stay in beautiful France, it got shipped to USA/California very long time ago where it got a light restoration in the 80ies, and about 10 years ago it got sold to his place of birth, Germany where the red color got repainted in about 2011, then it found its way to Austria in 2016, where it received a technical overhaul. The already installed new NOS front axle received NOS tie rods, steering push rod. The steering gear was overhauled and it drives like a new car again! I also renewed the brake lines, and many other details. I also added turn signals, the rear lights were converted to 2-filament lamps so that everything is compatible for Austrian Standards to make it streetlegal as a classic car.
The engine block used to be a new NOS part and is perfect to drive to many meetings, exhibitions,... it is a correct 30hp for 54/55 barndoor, old NOS German exhaust got installed about 3-4k kms ago, it has an Isky Cam installed that makes a super sound because of a super charger that was installed when it was in the USA.
Technically, the deluxe is completely original with its own partially synchronized gearbox, 30 hp motor, lever shock absorber, 6 volt on-board voltage, ...
Outside it has the original color of chestnut brown and sealing wax red with the original bodytrim and the plexiglass corner windows, 16 inch rims, added safari windows and a second mirror added, yellow accessory headlights that give it the perfect look.
The interior got renewed years ago and is still very representative, all in all a very nice, not perfect, but a perfect ride, no trailerqueen... makes people smile as you drive past and twists their necks :-) The deluxe dashboard is equipped with a beautiful Telefunken radio (not wired), the original super rare clock and a km/h deluxe speedo with chromering with the 24 part number!
The Deluxe has an Austrian classic car registration and technical control until February 2022 and can therefore be used immediately!
The VW birth certificate is also included, it shows all M-Codes and known details. Lots of paperwork and the invalid US-title and infos about the history of the bus are also there.
So e of the pictures are older, the bus is now equipped with 2 yellow foglights in front, the D-sign in the rear is changed to A (Austria) and the Gastank is now in original color grey with the correct sized letters! Lots more pictures available on request!
It was used by me for some weddings, trips and exhibitions and is now ready for a happy new owner :-)
I can imagine to take cash plus a Porsche 911 or 356, bug pre 1957 with a folding roof, Bus T1, T2b Westfalia, Karmann Ghia, ... in running order, no projects.
The deluxe is located near Vienna in beautiful Austria!

Price is 210k ono
