    He/she is a 1974 Deluxe. 1800 engine(works but it needs a rebuild). Still haven't named him/her.

    She is kinda cute looking :)

    I like her. Reminds me a bit of my Sunshine.

    Nice looking Kombi there, Joel. Looks like you've got yourself a good straight bus. And doesn't appear to be too much in the way of cancer either.

    74's not a bad year I've decided! :)

    PS. I'm loving the battery charger too. That's a beauty!

    Julian.

    looks like you've got a nice rare 50's middle seat in the back, that should fetch you a few dollars to put towards your resto, just letting you know that its no ordinary middle bench seat.

    I knew it wasn't the origional 70's seat but I thought that it was just a repro.

    Yup,
    Was about to post that aswell, Dave. Then I spotted your post. Nice score there, Joel. Intyerested in selling it, give me a PM mate. Always handy to have a spare. & also have a era one as part trade for your bus.

    I already have the origional one for bays so I probably would be interested in selling.

    personally I think the guy is dreaming. Its been on there for a while, also I'd say he is aiming at a differen't market. Its also a microbus model not akombi model (difference is the cover) and in good nick, but if someone is doing a full resto more than likely they would want to strip it and rebuild it. so for that money you'd have to have more money than sense. Most would get a bay 1 and recover it for less money and hardly anyone would know the difference.

    You can put whatever price you like on something, but it will only sell for what someone is happy to pay. especially when there are cheeper options.

    Nice pick up Joel - I'm sure it'll clean up beautifully! :)

    Rob/Big Dave - you'll be proud of me. I'm obviously learning something about Splits, as that was the first thing I noticed!!
