Shocked


Did ol' boy still have that hump back seat

Nope. The only seat left in either was the walk thru pass side upper, Out of the burnt westy. So even it was garbage. Nice frame rails under both, and some wall hangers.

Skim found this bus in the bush, but had left its partner there, I have a secret admiration for the shoebox ford. Check out the resemblance.

Scored this 56 Wolfsburg PGSG recently. Was being used as their garden shed for the past 30 odd years! Laughing
Fairly complete other than the fact that someone robbed the trans and engine to build a buggy

Front is there, rear bottom there but strangely the rear back rest is gone. Of course the 6 leg middle is MIA. Mad

Bad ass PGSG!

Gotta love the Canadian's VOLKSWAGEN lettering they did on their busses back then.

No thatís from their grand kids. Mad
Itís localized to the very back and should mostly massage out.

Looks like they left the wheels when they took the gear box. Nice find.

What a great find! It looks really solid and mostly complete. I hope they unbolted the trans rather than used a gas axe!

Yes they unbolted it along with the spring plates and torsion bars, so today I got busy and robbed all those goods from one of my parts donors. Now sheís back on all fours and looking better already. Oh, and I pushed the dent out of the rear of the roof and it popped out like butter!
