Here are some snaps of my recently acquired T3
Nice ride and welcome to KC.
Love the look of early T3’s.
Rust is your enemy - every thing else is bolt on
Thanks Barry. It looks clean for now but I am under no illusions about what lies beneath. It has definitely had work done but no idea of the quality.
Looks like a nice T3,ready to be used.
Welcome Scott i also have an 82 trakka...beautiful to drive and yes deleting rust!
That van looks great from the photos.
Should be loads of fun for you - they are nice to drive and very roomy compared to the earlier models
So far so good it’s living up to expectations.
89 trakka in Brisbane not on road yet
Nice. Looks great and a real nice find. And it has jalousie windows too! Did you know only 600 or so air cooled T3's of all types were imported into Oz compared to over 65,000 T2 Bay Windows and around 150,000 splitties. Not too many air cooled Trakka's left so happy to help you keep it alive and on the road. First hint, learn how to pull the insides out and apply rust preventative. These buses rust from the inside out!!!!!
My T3 is an '82 Bamboo yellow Trakka too.
Thanks for the warm welcome. Knew it was a bit special but didn’t have the facts. On the rust front I plan to do a bit more digging behind the fixtures to see what lurks beneath. I will certainly reach out for the help when needed. I get up your way pretty regularly would Be keen to have a look at a similar T3
@Scott Turner welcome to the party that never ends .... nice Trakka
