1968 Double Crew Cab w/ Brazilian Canopy OG Paint   Price: 30000
Howdy,

For the first time in the almost 20 years I've owned this Double Cab, it is up for sale. The 2-4 times a year that I take it out just doesn't justify keeping it any more. I purchased this Double Cab from a gentleman who went by the name "VW George" from the Lower Hudson Valley VW Society. He purchased it from a gentleman who brought the truck from California to New York State.

I paid a pretty penny for it back then as I could see what it is. An unmolested, unrestored, original paint Double Cab. Since I restored a few buses in my day I wanted to own one that I could just jump in and drive anywhere.

If your from the NJ area and go to the CJVWS Flanders show than you have seen this Double Cab there either in the swap section, or a couple of times in the show line up.

Brazilian roof height canopy was purchased from California and shipped out to me. I sand blasted the frame and sprayed it with non-sanding epoxy primer in a color extremely close to original. I then had all new piping sewed in the canopy canvas.

More details added 10/18 (Work performed by VW George before me)

Trans Nose Cone Rebuild kit installed along with Gene Berg Shifter (shifts great)

Engine Rebuilt with GENE BERG parts:
GB-002 - Pistons & Cylinders
GB-203 - Wrist Pin Keepers
GB-210 - Oil Sump
GB-341 - Valve adjustment screws
GB-405 - Rocket Shaft Kit
GB-439 - Front Pulley
GB-476 - Kadron Carbs
GB-622 - 009 Distributor
Gene Berg Semi Cut Heads

NOS Steering box purchased and installed from Wolfsberg West

Every brown spot you see on the truck is from California owner putting RUST CONVERTER on every scratch and paint rub off area thus converting it to brown and effectively sealing it in his mind (I guess).

Update 10/18 - All wheel cylinders replaced with FTE brand ones. Old brake fluid flushed and refilled with Castrol Dot 4 Synthetic.


CASH ONLY sale.

Thanks
Kevin
