VW 23 Window Bus
Posted by Scott
I saw this on This Isn’t Happiness today and it reminded me of my friend’s brother who used to be way into restoring VWs. He was always talking about “23 Window” buses like they were the holy grail of VW collecting (well, that and a split window Bug). I’ve seen one of these on the street in my lifetime — here in San Francisco — and one restored and sitting in a garage back home in Sacramento. I always wanted one, but at this point I think I’d settle for a new school one with the pop-top and sink and all that.
On another note: I love VW’s old adverts; they were always simple and to the point. They are all over my old Newsweeks from the 60’s, I’ll have to post some up soon.

The classic that all ad types chat about is ‘lemon’. Looked it up and came across this site : http://www.greatvwads.com/
I’d love a camper also. My uncle owns a Karmann Ghia and I am most envious.

Here’s one I saw at the Kruse Labor Day Auction in 2006:
It’s a beauty, in the perfect color!

ever since I drove around in high school in my buddies VW Bus, I’ve always been a fan. I’m hoping to one day restore one and mash around town in it! they’re so much fun to drive.

A really nice VW ad (in German language only) can be viewed here:
