Stalled restoration! An excellent opportunity to complete a restoration of this highly desirable 15 window VW bus. This left hand drive example has been in a dry climate all its life and in remarkably sound condition. All floors and foot wells are solid as are all the doors. Paint work has commenced with the lower half coated in a striking maroon. The rest of the body is prepped and ready for primer . The interior is partially stripped out, the seats remain in situ, front seats in distressed condition. In the rear of the bus there is a large box containing spares and items removed pre restoration. These include, hubcaps, wing mirrors, brake parts, interior trim and windscreen wipers etc.
