    Hello everyone

    Thought I better write on here since I have only just remembered my password and been able to login and am now in a position to purchase my second kombi. I owned an 73 bay back in England that was a wreck and was restoring it but then decided to move to the sunny coast for a new start so I sold my bay to friend who is still restoring now 4 years later. Now my wife and I are settled with a family, house and feel we belong I am now on the look out for my next kombi, I would prefer a lowlight in reasonably condition but pretty plain as would like to stamp my mark on it, engine no problem will build from scratch. Tin top preferably but not a deal breaker, would considered an early bay as well.

    Came with Bus, but bad news only 1200cc. Thought about making some changes but can only make 1500cc at a push. Gumtree to the rescue 1600cc T/Port and 1800cc here we come.

    72 microbus that has seen better days. Did you have a 2/3 front seat with M501 option in the front,don't see many of them. Good to see some TLC is happening to get this one rolling again.

    It is an option that was available to have a walk through model but could convert it to a bench seat up front.
