I thought I'd send the pictures of my sisters van "Bertha" currently being worked on in the garage.
1968 Dutch ambulance, owned by Mark who has just moved to North Wales, near us!!!!
Thought I'd send you a piccy of my '66 splitty cos she deserves a little fame I reckon!
I bought my '66 splitty (affectionately called Emm) from Keith @ VW Relics in York in January 2000.
Since then I've stripped out the awful black hammerite, blue, white and varnished wood interior and built up a new interior based upon a few of the salvagable bits of wood and repainted it all in a white-stain wood wash.
She was resprayed in March last year in a slightly brighter baby blue and white although I plan now to change this to a super-deep burgundy and cream when money allows!
The bloody uncomfortable and torn original seats have been replaced with a pair of Porsche seats from a '78 Porsche 911SC which are about to be reupholstered in cream leather-look vinyl.
She cruises around on 15" Porsche Fuchs (late style on the front and early deeper-dish ones on the rear shod with 195/45's all round) and chops the weeds with the aid of a 2 spline drop at the rear and a cut 'n' turned beam at the front.
The awesome power out back is provided by a fire-breathing Vega 1600 twinport currently sporting twin 36 DRLA's, a Maxi-flow oil pump and Mahle filter and is monitored with the aid of a few Autometer Ultra-Lite gauges.
Future plans include an IRS conversion, a 1776 Engle 110 cam lump, full length sun-roof and a more customised interior.
This is my 1963 Beetle I have had it for about a year, it's got a 1200cc
standard lump and has been lowered
My 10 month old son loves going out in it (seat belt in the back) and we get
a lot of people commenting on it.
All original inside which needs a little tidying but not a lot.
This is my 1982 T25 panel van. I have owned it for just over a year
now and haven't really done much to it. It is my first Vw so I am still
learning. It has a 2 litre air cooled engine and is fitted with replica
empi 5s. I have had a new offside sill made up and welded into place and
will be sorting out the paint as well...soon. At the moment I am fitting
new push rod tube seals as they are leaking, then it will be new heater
cables as they were not connected when I got it??? My aim is to fit a
seat/bed type thing but not to fully convert it. I do not want to cut it
about for windows...it seems too cruel (how sad am I).
'65 Devon conversion called Gladys.
