Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is proud to offer this iconic 1958 Volkswagen Samba 23 Window Bus for sale right now in our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. In the world of vintage VW buses, its all about the number of windows; prior to 1963, Kombi buses (base models) came with 11 windows, the Deluxe buses came with 15 and Samba buses like this one added a large canvas roof and 8 additional skylight windows to the top of the vehicle giving a total of 23. Built on VW Beetle mechanics, all VW buses including this one feature a rear-mounted air cooled 4 cylinder engine tied to a 4-speed manual transmission. The color combination on this VW bus is two-tone â??Mouse Gray" and White exterior paint with Tan wool/cloth interior seating for 8 passengers and carpet making for a calming and classy look. The restoration was completed over a long period of time and the bus is owned by a prominent VW collector who has several other buses besides this one. As for the elephant in the room, anyone who follows the collector car market knows how much money these 23 Window buses have brought at auction. According to Hagarty, these early 21 and 23 Windows remain incredibly popular and highly valuable even with millennials, who make up 20% of VW bus buyers. This is a trend we are not seeing with other cars in the 6-figure+ collector car market and a cause to be confident about investing in one of these now rather than waiting. Driving or riding in a restored VW bus like this instantly puts you in a vacation mindset- you can shut off from the world around you that is increasingly reliant on technology and enjoy a true driving experience in this simple and cheerful VW.

Our Scottsdale showroom is Gateway Classic Cars’ 16th location and opened in September 2017. We are located in Phoenix, Arizona which is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States and our reputation as the ‘Valley of the Sun’ allows for a year-round car season and a perfect environment to preserve vintage automobiles. Scottsdale is known as the home of the famous Barrett Jackson auction that draws thousands of collectors and enthusiasts to the Phoenix area every year. Our large and growing inventory includes plenty of desirable ‘southwest cars’ that have not been exposed to road salt and inclement weather like in many other US locations. We encourage our local car clubs and enthusiasts to come check us out on the last Saturday of every month for our Cars and Coffee event and cruise around our awesome 42,000 square-foot, air conditioned showroom.
