'64-'67 Split bus cab door panel pockets   Price: $50/pair
Here is a pair of '64-'67 split bus cab door panel pockets for buses with push button front door handles.
I designed this style to fit the later doors, because I wanted pockets on the door panels of my 66 kombi.

These are different from the regular, earlier, door pockets, as they are specially designed to clear the mechanism that holds the door open. The door prop started at VIN 1 222 026 in Dec 1963, same time as push button cab door handles. They take up some of the same space as the regular kind of pockets. So the regular pockets won't fit.
These pockets fit the later buses with the props on the cab doors. You will not have to cut or modify anything in your bus to install these.

These pockets make a great place to keep your smartphone or other electronic devices. They will be much safer here than your parcel tray which fills up with water when you have safaris or leaky windshields. They also can hold your church key, maps, small logbooks, tools, tire pressure gauge, etc.

They are vacuum formed out of ABS plastic. They are the exact same size as the '55-'61 pockets, but they have been notched to clear the inner door prop mechanism. They will never warp. They can be primed with plastic primer (available from any hardware store) and painted any color you want.

They are supplied with 16 - 1/8" mounting rivets which match the originals very closely. The rivets have been plated in silver cad.

The mounting rivets are easily set in place by laying the panel face down on a smooth concrete floor, and striking the tubular portion of the rivet with a hammer and a center punch, then finishing it with a flat punch. I have photos in my samba gallery if you need a photo tutorial.
One is left, the other is right; they need to be mounted on the correct side door panel, with the notch towards the front of the bus.

I can also supply them already mounted on cab door panels or I can supply a full set of panels for your bus. Please review my other ads if these are options you are looking for.
You may get these already painted in commercial grey rather than black.

Worldwide shipping is no problem.
