Sunlight reflex made it look like a two-tone, but it's not.

At this time, in this location with this browser it looks like chrome yellow and a pastel tan.

This is Just A Car Guy's banner today. I snapped and cropped it, he won't batch and upload all his banners for the month until the end of November:



I really like the side panel that mirrors the fender line and the hooded headlight/tailights.

edit:
I think the reason I like this is the similarity in the loft line to the picture I drew when I was in college, just an open-top version.



The underbody OTOH is highly evolved. There is a splitter behind the full-width bumper and an external duct from the front wheelwell to the rear.

I thought you mentioned two-tone because the roof looked white in one of the pictures

One could argue that that's not a two-tone, that's a racing stripe.

Another example of stock on top and aerodynamic on the bottom.

An example with no skylights with the sunroof. I once was offered a 1958 microbus with skylights but no sun roof. I failed to drag it home because it had been hit in the left rear. ....like so many others.

Well, sort of...

I have never seen one with skylights and no sun roof, even though the Samba Bus was never available officially here. All the ones I saw were conversions.

Just to add drama to the conversation, I have never seen a sunroof on a skylighted bussie. Could be a SoCal thing.

Else an NV thing.

At duckduckgo.com/?q=23+window+bus&ia=images find one that doesn't have. Most have seen a bus with sunroof and no skylights (every camper), but not t'other way 'round.

In the 16 years of Nv, seen only one skylight bus and oddly it was in oregon. Most of my VW stuff was SOCAL below the Bakersfield division line. Everything here in NV is a westie conversion so probably NOT a skylight.

Looks dangerous, wheel base is only sufficient for offices without rug floors and slow speeds.

Strikes me you could make this from a hoverboard and some zip ties
