High-priced Samba

The Witness - Wheels - - EXPLORE -

A 1959 VW Samba that was ex­ported in 2005 from South Africa to Eng­land is ex­pected to fetch be­tween R776 356 and R948 880 (ex­clud­ing tax and com­mis­sions) when it goes on auc­tion on June 10. Among VW col­lec­tors, the 23-win­dow Samba is con­sid­ered the holy grail, and this model was made even more unique with a bare metal, strip-down restora­tion job, which saw the owner go­ing to ex­treme lengths to ac­quire orig­i­nal parts.
