TAKE GOOD CARE OF MY MARLEY, JASON!
A HUGE THANKS TO:
THESAMBA.COM for providing such an amazing forum to gaze and dream ALL THINGS V-DUB!!!!
I have INVESTED Nearly $70,000 into this “museum piece” restoration!
Before you I present Marley........(links to videos and the build at the end of this ad and right below here). Just last week the surroundsound system was upgraded with new amplifier is added and it sounds like a rolling concert. Amazing base and amazing highs and mids! Between the first install and the upgrade I have spent over $2500 making the stereo system sound absolutely phenomenal no matter what music you were playing. Just upgraded pushrods to stainless steel and just converted single car up to dual carbs!
a 1967 VW, Type II, Walk Thru, 13 window deluxe, finished in its original colors.....L472 beige grey & L555 Titian red.....a very *rare* yet tasteful red, which totally complements the factory Titian red, which in photos OR in person, looks undoubtedly breathtaking!
Take her out for a spin and you’ll notice in the 1st mile of cruising how many smiles, thumbs up, and just dumbfounded stares you get from the public. It’s truly a sight to see. No looks of jealousy just smiling faces everywhere. Most people can’t believe what they’re looking at.
Marley was born as a desirable walk thru model, which is always the first thing people look for. Only one walk thru model of many front bench buses, were born this way....as a walk-through. This change Volkswagen made was by popular demand so that Mom’s and Dad’s could walk thru to back seats and tend to their children, without pulling over and getting out, just to get to the rear seats through the cargo doors...
Walk thru models were a rarity with major convenience.
This bus was *completely* disassembled for its ground-up restoration. ALL parts were reconditioned or bought NEW, to achieve what you behold in front of you:
—NEW Tires( two brand new... extra tires just in case.)
—NEW Premium Paint applied
— NEW sound/heat repelling Dynamat installed throughout
—NEW Grab handles and kick panels
—NEW & beautiful suede headliner
—NEW all black Rader 5 spoke 17” rims
—NEW seat padding
—NEW brakes on all corners ( front disk are Wilwood...Done by Russell at old speed )
—NEW Stock rear drum ( Marley stops on a dime! )
—NEW steering box
—NEW adjustable narrowed front beam with drop spindles
—NEW rear swing axle
—NEW custom stick shift
—NEW freeway flyer transmission
—NEW engine...1641 CC With brand new dual Kadron carburetors & linkage
—NEW CUSTOM exhaust & headers
—NEW glass(Two extra pieces of windshield glass..driver and passenger)
—NEW Optima battery
—NEW steering components
—NEW Banjo steering wheel with the beautiful St. Christopher horn button
—NEW fuel gauge
—NEW gas tank
—NEW KEYS( 2 sets )
—NEW hidden blue tooth surround sound
system that sounds amazing!
—NEW Wolfgang safari windows front and rear!
Anything you can think of that I did not add is also BRAND NEW. Marley is better now at 51 years old than she was when she was born. She runs better, stops better, turns better and looks better!
MARLY is a young beauty AGAIN at only 1100 miles old.
The entire underneath/belly of Marley was RHINO LINED and COLOR matched.
EVERY nook and EVERY cranny via a rotisserie.
NO RUST ANYWHERE!
NO RUST FOR FOR THE NEXT 30 years!
99.9 % bondo free( look at how clean she was when she was adopted from a farm in Texas! Marley slept under a 125 year old Oak Tree for nearly 20 years.....a 51 year old time capsule.
Gus Ramirez, the young VW guru and master mechanic has overseen the restorative process with intensive detail and NOT a corner cut anywhere! If you have a classic VW and you live in South Florida or even North Florida then you know who Gus is.
Marley’s new owner is indeed a lucky one!
