I called U.S. Customs @ Highgate Springs Vt., they said no title needed to bring in a shell, the duty $$ would be pretty minimal for a shell like that...

I'm thinking those pictures^ may have been taken after this 53 barndoor deluxe had been picked up by the roof by the logging crane.

- roof squeezed by the crane's jaws, so some skylights vertical and sunroof bows kinked
- cab area drop when lifted due to cab floor area/chassis weakness & front axle weight
- rear section/roof pulled downtoo due to rear axle (engine?) weight & cargo floor/chassis weakness
- virtually all glass popped out from the resulting distortion, only surviving in the cab doortop (no distortion)

Imagine in those seconds a £75k bus turning into a £30k bus!
Beaten up, but still here. Original paint poking out too.

Anyone else see this posted in the gallery? He posted this photo and said that he cut it up?

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/album_search.php?search_author=m.dumas

Here a little story about a find, thats not many person on this earth have made.

According to my research on the internet, this particular model has never been found abandonned in a place that nobody ever been.

Only few were found, but not many was really forgotten about.

In this winter 2017, long distance friend send me a picture. In this photo we could see an old wrecked van.

I let things pass....

A few days later, I looked at the picture again, and realized that it was an old Volkswagen split window.

So I decided to do some research and I quickly noticed that was a Barndoor 23 windows Deluxe .

It was time to locate this Barndoor. Over only 10 call later, I managed to find the woodcutter and find out where to find it. 1700kms away from me and 70kms lost in a forest, he was supposed to be there.

I was ready to leave and go to find this old VW.

Get a truck, get tool, get everything and we were ready. 9 hours later we were there, ready to enter this forest. only 70 km were separated the bus and I .

After driving 1.30h in the forest, snow, and hill, we found it. it was there sitting in the middle of nowhere. I found it, one of the rarest possible vw to find in a complete abandoned arena

It was beautiful. Sitting here watching the mountain....

I did not bring the trailer , it was impossible, it started ice raining. We have no choices. I Cut the bus and putted in the truck.

I took as many pieces as I could and we left before getting stuck in the forest.

we made it in time ...

In his small town, everyone will always talk about this 2 youngs men who have traveled over 3000kms to find a old wrecked car ...

It's probably idiots like him, that ruin our hobby and enthusiasm so much. Wherever this thing is (was) , and whatever deepfreezing Canadian backwoods it was located in. If he didn't come up with the right tools, I am sure that somebody would have been willing and able to come up with something like a helicopter, snowmobile, HD 4x4 truck or whatever it would have taken. Maybe he could have rightly sold his information for a fair sum of 1000 or mabye even a few thousands. Should have passed it on to somebody willing and able IMHO. greed is so ugly.

Now- Selling off a 'good condition' speedo in a clock pod.... Rolling Eyes Laughing

so isn't that pretty quick. 1100 miles in 9 hours ?
Must have used up all the money he got for the bus, for paying speeding tickets all over the US and Canada Rolling Eyes Laughing

It seems there are some very large holes in this story.

The largest being his attempt to sell this as complete shell and frame just a few days ago, yet in this story he cut the bus apart the first time he Layed eyes on it.

Either way, it sounds as though this story isn't headed for a happy ending

Okay, long story short 😉

The complete bus has a new owner, and both the buyer and seller are happy with the deal. It is being saved. Cool


P.s. Wanted-
Set of deluxe glass
1 or 2 Gerson panels
A few thousand hours of welding 😂

Great, I thought someone bought it but he was selling the speedo and that pod separately, like he kept them for some reason?

Did you refuse to buy the speedo with the Bus for some reason?

Thanks guys, really looking forward to this one Cool

The speedo and pod are staying the van, it was a debate with the seller and his friend about the value of parts, All done with permission.

Looking like I'll be engaging with the usual UK suspects to do a lot of straightening, trying to save as much as possible of this old warrior! Very Happy

No progress to report yet apart from collecting a few bits and pieces that it needs! I can do a build thread once work start in earnest if people would like to see it. Cool
