If I had one pick of all the cars at the Auto Collection at the Imperial Palace this is the car I would be driving. Even though I understand that all cars in the collection are for sale I am quite sure I'll never be driving this one.

However, I can dream a little and it is a tiny fantasy that has me driving to a beach in Malibu in this beautiful 1961 Volkswagen Micro Bus and enjoying a beach day. At $85,000 I'm pretty sure it will not happen. Sure it is for sale but it is out of my price range.

The Official Description from the Auto Collection at Imperial Palace Las Vegas
1961 Volkswagen Micro Bus Double Door Camper - A ground-up restored camper with rare factory cargo doors on both sides. Has new paint, glass, chrome, rubber, upholstery, woodwork, brakes and 12-volt system. Also features a rebuilt motor and transmission. This outstanding 1961 VW Micro Bus came from the German factory with the very rare option of double cargo doors on both sides. The Oregon-based Caravelle Camper company, which was one of the first camper conversion companies in the U.S, installed the original camper equipment. After 35 years of storage, the camper has undergone a complete professional ground-up restoration to like new condition. On the exterior there's new two tone white and blue paint with front Safari windows, new white wall tires and all new glass, chrome and rubber throughout. Included is a new canvas awning and roof luggage rack. The undercarriage and suspension have been fully detailed. The interior has new dark blue upholstery and new flooring, tables and curtains. The new cabinetry, paneling and headliner are all done in beautiful maple wood. An icebox, water storage tank and pump, fold-out bed and vintage gas heater round out the camper's interior. The brake and 12-volt systems are new. Both the dual port 1600cc motor and transmission are rebuilt.

All the vehicles in the Auto collection are for sale so you could be driving one of these things in the very near future. Get the details on the Auto Collection at Imperial Palace
