Sorry for posting my original message in the wrong spot...ooops. Anyways, I know that there has been topics about converting to 4x4. Well that is what is in store for this bus. Should be a fun project (will take a while though) Very Happy

Buy a Synchro Vanagon, a metal shop with lots of fine welding equipment, and you'll be done within a year Wink. Have fun!

If you are going to chop the sh*$ out of it at least start with a rig that is so far gone that it will never likely be driven again. History has shown that most of these half breed abortions live very short lives, so don't ruin a good restoration candidate to make one.

Currently running single piece axels by superior. Will upgrade to DANA 44 or greater later front and rear. Since both axle are current open diffs, they will spin before they break

I'm looking forward to posting up some finds in this thread. Up till now, I have had to keep my bay finds to myself for fear of isolation and scolding from my split bus brethren. It's a comforting feeling to be able to explore my bay curiosity amongst friends.

Thanks for thinking of those of us on the other side of the wall, Manny.

P.S. The 68 that was the impetus for this thread is much too nice an example to be cut into a 4X4. Find a 73-74 with a roached 1.7 litre. (should not be too hard) Let the early low light bay go to the hands of someone who will appreciate it. If it weren't for the mileage between us, I would consider finding a suitable trade for that bus.

Thats some funny Shiat there.
There are a bunch of Bays up here in the Northeast, most are rotted to death, unless they are brought in from the West, or are "Summer Only" Buses.
