Thread: 1963 Volkswagen Bus hammers at record-setting $217,800

  1. #1

    Post 1963 Volkswagen Bus hammers at record-setting $217,800

    At Barrett-Jackson's recent Orange County, California auctions, a 1964 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III James Young sedan went for $159,500, a 2005 Ford GT sold for $165,000 and a 1970 Dodge Hemi Challenger cleared $215,600. Topping them all, and every other car for the weekend: a 1963 Volkswagen Samba Microbus, hammering for $217,800 inclusive of bidder's fee.

    Even though Sambas, which were the top-of-the-line first generation bus and made for Alpine touring, have strong values, no one appears to be sure why this one beat everything else on offer. It's restored to "much-better-than-new condition," but that still doesn't explain why it set a record for any VW bus at auction. We can only wonder where and when it will pop up for auction again, since for that kind of coin, we don't imagine it will show up at any Magic Bus Extravaganzas or follow Phish around...1963 Volkswagen Bus hammers at record-setting $217,800 originally appeared on Autoblog on Tue, 28 Jun 2011 10:01:00 EST.
