1957 11 window - £7995 - can deliver anywhere in europe

Post by vw.sunshine »

1957 Kombi - US import - MOT exempt

Good points:
chassis looks solid
engine bay solid
cargo floor mostly solid
front doors minor surface rust but not rotten
original cargo doors in great shape
window frames all look good
cool original west germany build plates
inside the pillars look in good shape

Bad points:
front panel dented
long sill rotten
drivers jacking point bent
roof rotten around edges on the rear- the actual gutters themselves are solid so could just cut off and weld on roof cap.
arches been cut

can assist with delivery anywhere in the UK and across Europe for great prices.

The pics do make it look worse than it is, recommend viewing to see its in good shape except for the areas mentioned.

We have some possible slots in the new year to do the welding on the bus if that's of interest to anyone

r/arch repair 67 - yes
r/arch repair 58 yes
inner sill 16 Can't really recall them needing work, have you spotted anything in the pics?
sill 45 yes
nose 650 - would just blast the front and repair the bottom half
bulkhead 450 Seen cuts alot cheaper for sale but yes needs doing
corner 325 Potentially dents could be hammered out once battery tray removed, panel beaten worse out.
corner 325 Same as above
battery tray 27 yes
battery tray 27 Drivers side is solid from memory
dogleg skin 65 Yes
dogleg skin 65 passenger salvageable
jacking point 27 Yes
cargo floor repair 29 yes
valance 130 yes
decklid 235 Yes but can pick up cheaper at shows
bumper rear 190 Yes
bumper front 200 yes

If you do you all that and the roof you will have a solid bus for may years to come .
It does look rough from the pictures due to the roof buts its actually one of the more solid buses we have imported.
The roof was caused by a tree branch laying on it so its just contained to those areas. The main issue is just dents etc.
A posts, steps and interior ribs are all in great shape where normally you have to repair the ends etc. Gutters are all really solid.
all in all a great base and an expensive bus when finished.
Looks dove blue inside too.

ah ok, yeah its strange but US buses dont share the same rules with regards rot like UK buses. You start removing panels on a UK bus and there is usually not a lot left to weld too, of the last ten buses imports i've imported, only two needed sill work. Have a good lead on a cheap roof if it helps.
