1963 RHD 11 Window bus for sale

I am selling my 1963 11 window RHD Split Screen VW bus in Blue and Cream. It was imported and then restored in the UK. From there it was purchased by a TV company who used it to make a series of programmes. How many VeeDubs can boast that! . It has a 1500cc engine that has had hundreds spent on it. ...

Re: I finally got one

Not great pics, but heres a few to get started with. She was restored in 2007 and then was used by 'Ocean Finance' in some promotional series they made called 'Ocean Rescue' which is still played 3 times a day on Sky channel 888. Is quite funny seeing my bus touring up and down the country with the ...

I finally got one

After months of looking I finally found a splitty for me and the family to enjoy. I'm an aircooled newbie so I'm bound to be picking your brains at some point. Finally got a chance to give her a bit of a clean yesterday after taking ages picking off all the advertising decals from her previous life....

Dash ashtray problem

Hi guys,
Just purchased an ISP West ashtray to bling up the cab of my 1963 bus off eBay. On fitting it its too big for the hole, a good 5mm all round. I was of the thinking that the ashtray or hole would be the same size throughout the years. :?

Re: devon 10000 pounds

I've been looking since June and finally got my bus yesterday.
This site has been invaluable in advice and steered me clear of two scams along the way. I found these experiences just makes you more vigilant.
Keep looking, there is a bus out there for you.

Re: splitty safety

Right. Not pleasant but I got first hand experience in safety of these buses. Few years back a splitty was pootling down some country lanes minding its own buisness when it was struck corner to corner by a **** in a Z3 coming the other way. As a paramedic I arrived to find it on its side both occupa...

Splitty dashboard query

Hi all.

I just viewed a 63 splitty that had come from Malaysia. The dashboard had no hole or blanking plate for a radio. I thought they all came with radios or at least the hole to mount one? Any ideas?

Where have all the Splittys gone?

Might need a bit of help here. Been looking for a decent splitty for a while now. I've viewed a couple that wasn't as advertised and the rest seem to come up for sale at the other end of the country or sold before I've even had a chance to view. Of late though they seem to have really dried up. When...
