Re: For Sale 1965 Flatbed Splitscreen

From memory the factory in SA started in the 50's
Many early busses including a handful of german barndoor were sent to South africa and surrounding countries.

Re: For Sale 1965 Flatbed Splitscreen

The double cab is different to the single cab, the vents are in a different place.

Re: For Sale 1965 Flatbed Splitscreen

Those vents arent original, I have a German built 65 Sc with high vents from Namibia, the setup was the same for australia and other dusty climates The vents are just on the back of the cab, with the intake running through a channel under the bed into the engine bay. SA had both locally produced CKD...

Re: SGS Inspection Quandry

The engine number wont matter, very rarely does it come on the registration document even if filled in and documented on the application. Is to add later and have it updated if you wish.

Re: Bank transfers fir buses

No problem, safest & quickest way. If transferring from a european account wont be instantaneous as if uk to uk bank.
Dont release until funds are clear in your account.

Re: Viewing my first splitscreen: Advice needed!

Personally with an £8k budget I'd look at a nice bay opposed to a freshly imported Brazilian. Will be hiding a multitude of surprises, most being costly.

Good luck with your searching.

Re: Viewing my first splitscreen: Advice needed!

Hi Ben, Where is the bus incase someone is local who could look with you ? Can you add some pictures ? Dont be excited over shiny paintwork - better to see something rather than paint and filler hiding all sorts of sins. As above the engine excuse sounds poor, would take no time to get running & for...

Re: 1959 vw splitscreen double cab

This is a 1960 MY although possibly built in 1959. 1960 was the 1st year for a VW produced double cab, anything prior was coach built by Binz.

Good luck with the sale, looks a lovely truck.
