Hey Dodge, my guess is late June 66. Does it have the big fried blinkers on the front? Any pics??
Hi everyone. i have just grabbed a splity off the side of the road.( cause i could...)
DDV 1152. 785023. is this rare? sort after??
Solid shell only, some rust, cargo floor cut out? Y??
Not sure what too do , two many $$$ for me to spend.
Would a 5th wheel trailer be too much too bare.
welcome to the KC.
Your bus by my calculations was built between May and June 1961.
It should have small front indicators and twin small rear tail lights ( two small lights on top of each other, each side)
more than likely The cargo floor would have been removed because it was rusty. most split busses will need the complete bottom 6" replaced, all the repair panels are available locally.
Hi Dave , Im New to this but I have two splitys we are unsure what years they are the chassis no is 1246159 on one and the other is 890537 can you help with dates please .
1st one is Feb 64 and 2nd is Jan 62
Thanks Ian , now we can get started with the restoration of the 64 , will post pics as we go .
Hi , Rechecked the engine number it its 390537 not starting with 8 as i thought will that still keep it in 62.
Is that the engine number or chassis number? If it's the chassis number you should have a 1958 bus with semaphores and ribbed bumpers. My '58 is chassis number is 390536!!! They've gotta be brothers!
sorry that was the chassis number , has semaphores but no bumpers on it
here is one, 310747
Does anybody know what this bus should be like...
can you identify mine underneath
Do you mean 310747 ??
Thats a Jan 58
hi, just wondering i know the chassis number relates to a january 1955 but would you be able to help me with what does the mkak1679 stand for? in a previous post martin and king but what does the last "k" stand for? and is there anyway at all to confirm 100% what the factory colour was? any help apperciated.
'K' = Kombi
i think so, the numbers are really hard to read, thanks mate
