This is one of the things I don't understand everyone has had a chance to buy this bus is well aware on how rare it is...I just don't know why someone would want to get rid of it once they owned it...

most people can't handle and/or wouldn't enjoy driving a panel without a cab divider for very long

IMO for most the "cool" factor probably wears off after awhile plus the fact there is not much they can do with such a rare bus they get bored and/or are ready to move on

Wow! A story with a great beginning, middle, and ending. Must have been sad to let go of Bob... Hope France treats him well.

I know I'm late to the party (dollar short, too), but this is a GREAT thread. So much fun to read (and learn) about these old VW buses.

Even though I'm a member here, I found this thread via google when looking up "Barn-door VW bus."

Smile

If I had the money, I'd have a VW in every shape and size.

I say lucky, cause I survived the drive. 60 year old bias ply tires, can not see much, loud and hoping it would stop Smile

I've seen pics of this bus online over the past year or 2 and always assumed it was a survivor, now that this thread has been bumped its clear it was brought back from the dead! Testament to the skills of those who worked on it.
Only thing is now I need to see the before pics, I've gone through the thread page by page and any before pics seem to have disappeared. Anyone got a pic of as found?

The photobucket pics on the first few pages show up for me so I uploaded them here and fixed the links.
