Auwaerter Carlux Scale - 1:43

Ernst Auwärter (from the family who started the famous German bus/coach brand NEOPLAN) branched out of the family business to focus on making smaller buses called minibuses. 

Between 1960-1963, he constructed 24 buses out of Volkswagen Type 1 vans giving it a completely new look – roof with curvature and covered with tinted glass, tall side window glasses, a front windscreen that was fully curved. Not just that – even the roof was at a higher level and so a passenger could walk-in to his seat without bending. 

With so much outside view these buses could have been used only for the tourists and so a travel operator from Switzerland brought them and used them for shuttling tourists.

Auwaerter called the bus Carlux as he wanted to give it a different identity than the popular VW T1.
