1963 Volkswagen 23-Window Microbus With Camping Trailer

First introduced in 1950 – the Volkswagen Microbus effortlessly became an enduring classic. Hippies, campers, and eventually collectors have coveted these vehicles for over 60 years, and now one of the rarer models is now up for auction on Sotheby’s.

This 23 window version of the Volkswagen Microbus was originally developed for touring the Swiss Alps and taking in the views. It has a window roof for panoramic views and split window safari windshield so you can feel the wind running through your beard. The original engine in these vans was pretty underpowered, so the owner decided to upgrade with a 50 horsepower 1585cc flat-4. Included in the auction is a super rare 1967 Eriba Puck camping trailer. Only five of these have survived all these years, which is a real shame considering how much cool stuff they came packed with. The trailer has a two burner propane stove, sink, dining table, a pop-up roof, and twin beds. Everything you need for your next adventure. [Purchase]
