    G’day again.

    Love the look of early T3’s.
    Looks clean.

    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.

    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:D

    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
