Hello again! The need for a bus was getting strong and after seeing lots busses I finally found one. I've seen so much busses lately... a lot of rusty bondoed busses and priced as if they're made of gold! I wanted something with a reasonable price and a good driver. That's why I skipped the splitscreens and went for an earlybay.
So here it is, a Deltagreen 1970 Deluxe. Found in Fresno California and brought to me by a great English guy.
I'll try to post some updates regularly overhere...
Hi! After having sold the '65 Karmann Ghia convertible (somehow the need to finish this project abruptly came to an end, some high class car restorer is now finishing it) I needed another project. I wanted a patina Volkswagen T2a Westy bus but finding a nice and affordable one isn't easy nowadays as everybody wants that...
So last year I bought this 1960 Volkswagen bug for the meanwhile to attend some VW shows and search for a bus...
Mounted some 5x130 discbrakes with new dropped spindles machined by SlammedPanel:
Early Fuchs job (Deep Six & 5,5's) polished by Freezzr (never again):
And after some cleaning/polishing/detailing, etc.:
While searching for a nice Porsche project I stumbled upon 'the other favorite' and went for it as I couldn't find an affordable and doable Porsche project in a short time.
My new ride is a Januar 1965 Karmann Ghia Convertible. I always liked the looks of a Karmann Ghia, especially when they're nicely detailed, slammed, Fuchsed, black and a convertible... The birth-certificate says it's original a black car with a red interior. And that's what it's going to be. The former owner already bought a new interior, new engine, new vert roof, sheetmetal etc. so that was a great start for me ;)
