This is Stella our Original 21 window Samba. LHD
Originally made in Germany to be shipped out to Houston USA, After a life in Houston Stella was bought by a Japanese collector. Around 2009 Stella was shipped back to the UK. This is when we bought her.
Stella was used occasionally as a wedding car, taking the Bridal party to the church in style.
The M codes match and prove she is in fact an original 21 window deluxe micro bus.
At some point a new engine 1600cc was put in her and her brakes have be upgraded to Bay window brakes.. ( reliability and safety )
Other than that she is pretty original. We have never had any issues with her. Anything she has needed was replaced to keep her in the best condition while maintaining perfect reliability. Serviced regularly she will continue to serve her new owners for many years to come.
All the pop out window and front safari windows where replaced with creative engineering chrome replacements. ( best on the market)
She has a driver and bench seat up front, a twin the middle and triple bench seat at the rear.
With very little body work needed to become a show winner. Few bubbles around the lower doors. German made, Shipped to the USA- send to Japan - Brought to the UK in 2009 when we bought her.
Our Stella originally paid for herself and her own keep covering the occasional wedding. We love having a wedding car business, enabling us to buy Splittys. She gains smiles where ever you drive. She has been so reliable. Even on distance runs she keeps on going. We have regularly serviced Stella. In the last few years she has been in storage. We had two split screens but when we stopped weddings we kept Stella. Our kids love her.
