1956 Samba with Matching Trailer

2 08 2013

I spotted this beauty last weekend at the Berlin Bus Festival and thought it deserved its own blog post. Judging from the vanity plates, the Samba bus is from 1956 and the hearse trailer from 1961. The bus is a pre-1960 23-window early Samba with semaphores in the B columns. The additional indicators on the front must have been added later, after they became available in 1960 (some snapshots of another beautiful 23-window Samba here). The trailer started its life as a hearse and has now been re-sprayed in matching colors and turned into a tow-behind bedroom. Perhaps a bit spooky to sleep in an ex-hearse. But it’s a beautiful bus-trailer combination, and you can keep the bus in its original nine-seater condition and still use it for camping.

Sweet,

Hope your Bremskraftverstärker is doing better. Ich hatte doch tatsächlich Probleme mit der Zündung und musste zum ersten Mal den ADAC rufen. Zündkabel. Marder?

Ist halt ziemlich wild hier. Seit 10/12.

VG an Deine Ladies. T.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen Tobias Marquardt
