Default VOLKSWAGEN SAMBA BUS.

Did this for a bloke a work this week. He owns a real one he bought from a bloke who had it in his barn.

This is how he collected it that day..........Looks new now after the restoration. Interestingly those windows are a THOUSAND DOLLARS each.





Couple of start to finish shots.

Enjoy.

I restored cars for 35 fucking years. All kinds. All the while, mostly, still building models as well.

And not ONCE did it fucking occur to me to build a model of a fullsize restoration project in it's "as found" state?

I love it!

VW "window vans" are big over here too! I'm not sure the glass prices are up quite that high yet but it wouldn't surprise me either. Funny thing- just yesterday I visited a "junkyard" I hadn't been to in fifteen years and they had a 71' Beetle which reminded me of one I had built about twenty years ago. I could have bought it arguably. Alas, I no longer have my shop to rebuild it.

WOW!! Here's a blast from the past ! Cheers Mike, glad you liked it.

The bloke gave me a load of pics of the one he owns to be restored and said "copy it"

He has a picture in his office of the model on the dash of the real one. Also some of the pics here. Someone said why take your wreck of a bus for an expensive photo shoot !

Actually those pics were taken outside on the reverse of a Van Halen poster on top of the bin. Hahahaha!!!

Default Re: VOLKSWAGEN SAMBA BUS.

There are a couple of 50s Kombis that cruise around my area. One is painted matte grey with whitewalls, red rims and chrome caps with the pop out front windscreens. The other is silver over gloss black, chromium and oh so cool. Needless to say, both have the torsion bars wound RIGHT DOWN.

Mike
