Does anyone know where to get the metal frame that the "side vent" aka wing window on an early/ late bay sits inside of? I can get the rubber easy, but my frame is rusty.

Thanks

That thing is probably worth half that... all the work that needs to be done, the rust, what color is it even? If it was yellow, the interior isn't OG.

Jeez, CT... Can't you read? It says right in the ad, "This bus will sale fast so don't waste time. This is for a Vw Bus enthousiast. Not a bigginer."

It's going to sale fast, so hurry up and buy it. It's a good think you're not a bigginer. Laughing

I think it's worth more like one-third the list price. It's put together like a Harlequin bug. And if it ran when parked last, why do you have to bring a trailer to pick it up? Hmmm.... It's a Canadian conspiracy.

That could be fun. The price is right. If that was within a few hours, I'd consider it. It would make a great bar our in the shop Wink

Okay, this doesn't exactly qualify as a "good deal"...
$7k sounds high for a bay with no drive train...
https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2159803

BUT it is a Westy and a '75, so NO SMOG check required in California!

I kinda think chrome yellow looks mighty nice, but I may be jaded.
So what if it is almost the exact same color as a school bus or an old Caterpillar...

Nice solid platform, but even without rust there is quite a lot of bodywork there - not to mention interior work, no motor - shouldn't it be listed more like half that price?

Yup, $3500 sounds like a good starting price. But it will probably sell for much less than that.
Sellers can dream!

Obviously this guy hasn't been monitoring The Samba for prices and availability of type IV engines. Rolling Eyes
He's willing to pay $500 for a working engine with fuel injection. Laughing
Well, heck.... I'll go as high as $600!
