Morning all-

I am restoring my 1966 15-window. It does not have a parcel tray. I have seen a few here on the Samba in classifieds.

Before buying one, I am confused on what I have seen called: fat lip, thin lip, and thin lip H.

Do they all fit? Were their different styles? Any advice much appreciated.

Thank you
-Mark

First we need to clear up if your bus is a 66 or a 15 window.

If you are talking about the red and white bus in your gallery it looks like maybe a 66 13 window. If that's the case you need a fat lip parcel tray.

It is a 1966 15 window.

I am still learning buses and realized that the 15 window has two rear corner windows.

Don't buy the first nice fat lip tray you see. You need a late fat lip tray.
Read the first page of Parcel tray changes... through Clara's second post, noting Lind's first post.

The link above is found in forum post #1:
Announcement: Split Bus FAQ and How Tos - *Read before posting*
(excellent reference)

Hi easy e ... thank you for this.

As a bus newbie, would you know if this one could work? https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2423626

No, it needs to dip down in the middle... like the second pic:

61-65: (flat across the top edge)

66-67: (top edge dips down in center)

Thank you so much for this knowledge.

Yikes, now I got to figure this out where to buy one.

I'll need to ask good questions from the sellers.

- You can place a wanted ad.
Yes, get a pic confirming it has the V back.

Thanks Clara. The poster asked me to take a pic of under my dash which I will do tonight so he can verify whether or not he does have one that can fit. If not, I will post for sure.

The good news is that I have a metal power-coating guy I know that can bring one back to life Smile
