I don't doubt that. This gets better and better.

very strange that it is not a type 24 bus a type 22 with chromes and sunroof options


From 4/68 one could get a sunroof on a type 22 (microbus like this one) and type 23 (kombi) as an option. they were standard on all type 24.

An even rarer beast would be a double door kombi sunroof. Kind of like the sunroof barndoors of Ken King.

There is a double slider 1970 bus for sale that has a sunroof but it doesn't look like a deluxe. Neat bus for sure but missing the original parts and has a aftermarket window.

I tried to ask the last owner for a photo of the m-plate but she never got back to me. At least the current owner didn't jack the price up as it's about the same as it was when listed in August 2012. Rare bird for sure.. too bad someone at some point "customized" it.

That is a great bus! Once I get mine back up and going (this summer) we'll have to wind up at the same event(s)!

Inspiration! Awesome find!
