This just in on the 59...
Interior isn't original to the bus BUT is an original 59 Devon interior, complete with tables, gas lamp (twin shade), stove, Easicool not osokool.
Painted in it's original colours, original factory safari's and lot's of NOS parts used.
Creative IRS with 1303 Beetle box, 68 Bay front ball joint/brakes. (wrong)
Period reversing lights for indicators.
Original Westy rack, but they only belong on Westy's IMO.
Most things on the snag list could be reversed.
All in all i think it's pretty special, just a few tweeks needed here and there, it could make an old Devon pervert very happy....
