The VW T1 Samba Bus in real life made its appearance in 1951. The Samba Bus was considered at the luxury end of the range when improved features included two pivot doors at the side and a fabric sunroof. A mass of windows also gave it a light and airy feel. The Samba came with two-tone bodywork separated by a decorative strip.
Our 1:76 scale model shows off much of the detail of the real thing, making its fifth appearance in a refreshing turquoise and blue-white two tone-colour scheme with a cream roof panel, enhanced by highly decorative surfboards on the roof secured by a chrome roof rack. The interior of the bus is also cream including the steering wheel and the dashboard. The wheel surrounds echo the turquoise body colour with chrome wheel centres, while the bumpers have been given a white finish. The model is registered GCG 597 from the 1950s period.
