Hello all. Here we go again, say hello to my new bus.
It's a September 1967 (1968 MY) Neptune Blue Deluxe out of Blake's Yard in Colorado. Imported by Jonno at Vintage Valley (instagram - vintagevalleyvw) back in 2016, and I've had my eye on it for quite a while until the deal was done earlier this year.
Some pics from Blake's when it was used as a parts shed before it was pulled out.








Here's an old video of when the SWS took a trip to Blakes, no bays in the vid though.

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic the bus has been in lockdown itself in a curtain sider at Vintage Valley.





As it's just a shell, not a very mobile one, I need to get it rolling so it can be moved.
So, rear stub axles, rear brake drums, wheels, tyres and wheel bolts required for the first stage.

I don’t want to spam your thread, but it appears that yours may have a twin... will be interesting to see whose gets finished first! (Won’t be ours!)
