Spot on Rack 2 where Scotch-Brite removed paint. Original galvanized finish revealed.
Vanagon / Bus Original OEM Roof Racks (2)   Price: 650
Vanagon Roof Racks - OEM originally sold by VW dealers in the 1980s as a vehicle accessory. I am told these will also fit Bay Window Buses also, but I cannot confirm this.

These are the larger size of these style of racks and cover 1/2 of the Vanagon roof. Two will fit on a Vanagon roof if placed at the very front and very rear of the roof. Original VW part number ZVW153204. The smaller size (not in this ad) only covered about 1/3 of the roof.

Overall length: 70.75"
Overall width: sized to mount in gutters
Inside cargo basket length: 63.75"
Inside cargo basket width: 47"
Racks have nine (9) side-to-side floor bars.
Three support legs on each side
Two gutter clamps on each side

There are 2 racks for sale:

Rack 1 $650
Powder coated black in 2019 - nice finish
Two support legs have been repaired with an internal strengthening member and welding. Although repaired, this is the strongest place on the rack.
One repair before powder coating, one after and painted with matching black paint. This rack has clamps newly dipped in Plasti-coat to protect the gutters.

Rack 2 $650
Spray painted in flat black many years ago - flaking now. Could either be repainted in color of your choice or the paint can be easily scrubbed off with a Scotch-Brite pad. See photo where I sampled an area. This would expose the original gray galvanized finish. Paint doesn't stick to sell to the galvanized coating, so paint removal would not be too tough. No repairs have been needed on this rack. Clamps have old peeling Plasti-coat that would need to be re-done.

Note on Rack 1 repairs: This rack has been used with pretty heavy loads on 4x4 trails on a Syncro and the cracks in the support legs are a result. I think a pretty heavy load on the highway or a light load while 4-wheeling will be OK, but not both simultaneously.

Racks are in Los Angeles area.
