Newly restored GL passenger model converted to a camper (may be a first?) complete with the help of Vanistan (Chris Corkins) and a very nice engine rebuild and a pleasure to work with. Highlighted with scalloped graphics from the 50s and VW Tiguan wheels. Also, I have added a roof rack from a Chevy Blazer which fits the van design better than aftermarket units which look stuck on and hanging on for dear life.

Come spring 2013, I am planning a National Parks Tour, hence the kickoff design I did (Graphics Designer by trade) for T-shirts with all the tour stops along the way on the back side.

Van was painted same color all over and rear labels/tags have been removed to simplify and clean up the original design.

Interior was kept stock, just cleaned and added a passenger map pocket for more storage. Everything works.

58 qt. Coleman Ultra Marine Cooler fitted with drain tube extending through the floorboard for drainage. Never have to worry about taking it in and out. Roll out baskets for easy access storage.
Van is also wired for 110V. Not visible but on the drivers side where the jack stand fits, is a waterproof plug-in receptacle with a wall plug inside.

And the best part, a newly built Vanistan (Chris Corkins) balanced and blueprinted engine. Can't say enough nice things about the engine and Chris, great job and great person to work with. He's the man for wasserboxer engines. Cruises at 75-80, no problems, and that's fast enough for the VW design.

Also want to thank a good friend (Klaus Huebner-Spring Branch Imports, LLC) who helped with the restoration and sadly passed away toward the latter part of this project. Without his help, I would have been over my head and taken much longer than the one year it did take. Auf Wiedersehen!
