Today’s car of the day is the ’67 Volkswagen Samba Bus that was on That 70s Show, and I saw it at the 2018 Barrett-Jackson Auction in Palm Beach. It’s from the first generation, which was made between 1950 and 1967. The engine of this one is a 1.5 liter flat-4 that produces 53 horsepower and 78 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is a 4-speed manual. This Volkswagen was auctioned off for $121,000.
