PostSubject: Missionare - 1969 Early/Low Light RHD T2a Bay Window Walkthrough Microbus   Fri May 31, 2013 1:17 pm

First topic message reminder :

Latest addition to my pool of Aircooled VWs:

Matching Numbers All Around;
Current Missionary School Van;
November 1968 (Model year: 1969) Early RHD T2 Bay Window Walkthrough Microbus with Sliding Door on Left.
1600cc M-240 (Low Compression) 44BHP Matching Motor

Needs a ground up restoration but worth every penny its bought for.

Bought it for a Polish friend's Tour of Pakistan! The Polish friend named it as "Missionare" (German: means Messenger) for its life long service to humanity.



This is tell tale of Missionare's acquisition, 700KM journey back home and the restoration. Stay tuned as we embark on an exciting ride deep into the Early Bay world to explore what it is like to restore a half living auto-marvel from the past. 

DISCLAIMER: The thread would be creepy slow as I have two other projects running in parallel to this (a 65 Bug & a 79 Safari), so plz be patient but be assured that it would be another restoration cookbook, though this time on the subject of Early Bays.

Missionare had a sloppy throttle pedal and needed the linkage kit as well as patched pedal replaced.
Since the cab floor needs replacement, for now, I have replaced the linkage to make it work a little better. Pedal will be installed once the replacement cab floor goes on.

sorry for the crappy phone camera pics as my cam's memory doesn't seem to come along at the minute.
