Deadhorse1: Great VWs, especially the barn door. I've have owned 6 VW type 2s over the years my first one was a 1965 that had a blown engine that I bought for $100 and had to pay another $100 to have towed home. Bought a 1970 bug for $100 that didn't have a title, put its engine in the camper, sold the body for $200 and the blown bus engine for $75. So had $25 in the camper and I drove all over the USA in it. This was about 1979 and back then it was another old car.
I miss them
Peter Démaster: Super quality of filming.These buses are nice,cute,fun to drive and better cash investment than anything,you made fun...
mtnappraiser1: I have a 67 Westy but not as nice as this one. BTW my SO42 came stock with a PAINTED VW logo/emblem on the front so the comment below referring to the chrome emblem (although nice) would not be original on the camper.
DearDiaryMusic: I recommend not purchasing a 1975 VW Van. 1975 is the only year they made that specific type of transmission, and trust me, if the previous owners haven't replaced the original transmission yet, it's going to go out soon... and you will be stuck with the same problem I have. :(
Wilbur Snaffel: You should NOT have painted the large VW emblem on the front. Chrome is cool.
ObservantHistorian: Nice restoration! I had the exact same model, in white! The only vehicle I ever restored, so not quite as nice as this, but still pretty good. It needed some lower body, floor, and frame rust repair, and a paint job, but rest of the vehicle was still in good shape when I got it. (Had to replace the pop-up canvas, too.) Still had the original curtains, even - only had to launder them! Drove it from VT to California, where the roof rack was stolen within a week of my arrival.
I love the window louvers in the video! Those look like they could be an original option, but I've never seen them before. Are they custom?
dank donkerson: still not as cool as Jeremy Clarkson's P45
thespagwing: Go to lego.com and do a search for VW T1 camper van. Enjoy the 4 hour build time. The detail lego have incorporated is fantastic.
