My question is what color panels and seats does it take
Would the seats and panels be como green or grey?

Also does the Walk Through section take panels?

Sounds like an interesting bus.
Can we see pics of the M-code plate, and of the bus?
Does it have the metal strips around the roof edges like the kombi w/interior panels pictured above?
M-code plate should say interior/ seat color. I'd think for a kombi it'd have kombi colored seats and smooth gray panels in the back, like the back DC panels, nothing on bulkhead


the 64 kombi in the eccles book had roof panels, if I recall where only above seats, not above luggage area
long panel, short panel, cargo door panels and bulk head panels. the nos set I have, have bulk head panels. they look like a push up bra, since only panels on either side of spare bulge-all with wood strips

NOS PARTS, can you post pics of your NOS set?? A buddy of mine and I were thinking of making him some panels for his 65 hawaii kombi. We were going to use masonite, but am wondering what the wood looked like. Does anyone make the og type board material??
Thanks

Mine is a sunroof (ragtop) and walk through. I know it didn't have panels around the sunroof but not sure about the walk through partitions.
So should I assume all the interior should be gray?

Interesting for sure!! This list of vehicles sounds interesting, so how many of them run. Laughing I was once told I have an indoor junkyard for not having any of the 3 buses I own running. Laughing Just curious, the list is certainly impressive. Wink

dunno what was in the eccle sbook, there is so much wrong in that book I would not quote it as a reference. There is also enough right that you don't know.
Anyhow, normally a kombi had cab panels, nothing else.

The DC panels are masonite, hatch pattern one side, smooth the other.

please post a pic of your M-code plate (wash out the end of the VIN if you want), and pics of the inside of the bus.
does it have the metal strips around the edge of the ceiling, like the first bus discussed?

The paint code on your bus is for a two tone kombi. usually seen on westfalia campers. Is the cargo area all painted, or gray?

Clara I'll post pictures next week. Bruce (slugbugblue) is storing the bus for me. Binnie Brian has also seen it when he was in ALBQ. on his way to the classic.
The cargo area is primerd. Also like stated Everett added the numbers from this M-code to the westy or kombi area.

i think the problem with masonite or hardboard for those ceiling panels is finding them in a 5x5 size

Are you sure the rear panels are made of the same stuff as the front ones?
Could you take a pic of where they meet?
I suspect the front has the pebble grain and the back are smooth. Like the cab roof of a SC and the roof and back interior of a DC are smooth.

And what is that at the back? A bunch of screws holding the roof panel to what?
sunroof 2 tone w/t interior panel option kombi is about as good a a fat hatch bus gets, well maybee if it were a westy? awesome bus

Love the way you're pulling the swivel lovers chains.
Laughing Laughing Laughing
i find it interesting that the center roof bow does not have screws securing it. or am i just not seeing them?

screws are not needed when you get those panels in. They are under such tension that once they snap in they form to the shape of the roof. In fact getting them out once they go in can be quite a difficult task (ask me how I know... Cool )

it looks like a piece of wood shaped to the roof, similar to a Westie. i actually found another panel headliner bus the weekend. it was a 65 and the roof looked just like the one pictured above. no pictures because it was dark and no m-codes. the bulkhead had been removed and the bus was being used as a shed. nice jersey looker though. it had 1953 Ford tail lights, cut wells, widened steel VW wheels and a small 70s style grant steering wheel. this is my only shot of the bus

Overseas somewhere....I don't know the original colors as the bus appears to have been taken down pretty close to bare metal when it was painted. I scratched a few areas inside hoping to find the original paint color, but no luck.

thanks for the info on this headliner.
is it possible that you could take a pic near the fresh airbox on the driver's side showing the detail where the front cab and rear ceiling panels meet?

here are a few more pics of my 66 showing what's left of rear hatch hinge covers and the roof bows. my bus also has no holes in the center roof bow fwiw.

Early South African kombis were supplied with standard rear seats and roof and side panels. Here are two 57s, one with an original paint interior:

This is a very interesting subject I have never seen an interior paneled combi in person before so it is very cool to see how they did it. I wonder if any barndoors were delivered with hardboard interiors??
