Ex Swedisch army bus with double doors. Spent four years doing a full nut and bolt restoration. the bus is mechanically pretty standard with the exception of dual circuit disc brakes and a 1600 engine that was already fitted when I got it.The body was very sound and only needed a small amount of welding .It had 2cm of underseal and seems to have been wax treated in the body panels.I stripped the shell to bare metal, stripped and repaired/reconditioned all the mechanical parts and re painted them before fitting. The shell has been completely repainted inside and underneath.The interior was designed to be as lightweight as possible using birch ply and aluminium tread plate for unit doors etc .We all love it to bits and use it mainly for picnics but have camped with a drive away awning on a number of occasions

Bus info : D.O.B.: 1964 Color : White / Green Engine : Electric
very nice rotisserie refurbished 1964 Volkswagen Bus with a factory silding door.One of the first few produced in late 63 with such an option.
This bus came from the factory equipped with a sunroof, sliding door, walk thru, locking steering column and rear seat delete. It was a transitional bus as well with 15" rims and ice pick door handles.Rumored to be only one of three produced with a sliding door and sunroof. But this one also was a walk thru. The bus has lots of unique pieces specfic to the bus. Like other sunroof buses of the era, the inner skylight window stampings are hidden behind the headliner. It was also equipped from the factory with belly pans to stiffin the chassis.
It was not restored perfectly back to stock specifications, close, but with a few upgrades and alterations which could easily be changed for showing.
The L380 Turkis and L289 Blueweiss combination is correctly done and matched to an original sample. Instead of just lightly overspraying the undercarriage, it received a full covering of L380.
