1965 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon Deluxe

THE DELUXE MICROBUS 9 PASSENGER was Volkeswagen's top-of-the-line transporter. The DELUXE wasessentially a normal Microbus with an extra window added to each side. The Deluxe Microbes also had fancy trim attached to the exterior that consisted of flat polished aluminum molding that held a colored plastic bead down its' center, as well as fancy rubber trim affixed to the face of the bumpers, frontand rear. Most Deluxe Microbuses were ordered as "Samba" models that included a sliding canvas sunroof flanked by 4 skylight windows on each side of the roof (that is a 23 window bus through 1963 and a 21 window bus starting in 1964. When ordering a new bus, a customer could specify M-code M-130 if theywanted a "hardtop." Hardtop Microbuses without the sunroof and the 8 skylights are more rare than theSamba version, and are often called "13" window buses. The nine passenger version also had a "bulkhead" front bench seat. The middle and rear seat are also full bench seats.
