That bus looks so sad with its wipers dangling down 😢

Do you have any pictures of the rear, of the inside as well as the cockpit?

Mostly stripped out now , what pictures did you want , anything particular?

Righto, thought it would help anyone to see condition of what’s still available.
Switches, dashboard, seats, doorcards, rear light clusters, windows…
Underneath like beam.
Cheers

Do you have the clamp that holds the jack under the passenger seat? Looks like this:8783490.jpg

I’m also looking for a pair of these. I put 2 of mine in a “safe place” and can’t find my safe place! AC95577D-D136-463D-AAD0-59D6B7E77D8A.jpeg

Hi, do you have the heated rear window switch or hazard switch? Thanks
Apart from the Deluxe Microbus, few if any British specification 1968~79 VW Type 2s were factory-fitted with heated rear windows and none had a rear-window wiper & washer system. My 1973 VW Type 2 already has a pukka rear-window wiper & washer system, but I have yet to substitute the heated rear-window glass.

Sadly, most of the after-market alloy wheels (including the EMPI 5-spoke, 5.5 x 15 inch) that are marketed as a replacement for the 1968~70 & 1971~79 VW Type 2s, are of too small a wheel-offset (typically 20 mm) for these vehicles. Even a wheel-offset of 30 mm is less than ideal! Generally speaking, many of the Mercedes 14, 15 or 16 inch wheels, are better suited to the 1971~79 VW Type 2s,
