1966 VW Splitscreen SO42, 11 window bus finished in red.
My first priority was to improve the ride, so independent rear suspension was fitted with drop spindles to the front together with disc brakes - it beats me how people manage to stop in these 50 year old buses with drum brakes
The bus has been regularly used as intended and as a family we have done loads of camping and V dub shows all over the country including a holiday to Biarritz - as a consequence of this - I got tired of changing down to second gear to negotiate hills - so last July I had an 1834 cc engine fitted with clutch.
The interior is dark wood with new foam in the cushions, there are new seals fitted to the windows, seat covers, door cards and carpets have been replaced. The pop top has a new canvas installed.
I have fitted creative engineering safari windows to the front.
Has a 5 " tacho with shift light and a Just Kampers 3 bow Roof Rack.
1834 cc detailed rebuilt engine
long reach cylinder heads
Accuspark red HT leads
Twin 34 ICT carburettors
Vintage Speed sport exhaust
It is very reliable and has never let me down.
The bus goes very well and cruises at low revs on the motorway due to the 1302 GT gearbox.
