Any chance of introducing the VW Bus in India? If VW could cherish the sales of Beetle, I think it can sell a good number of Bus models in India. What do you think?

Hi every one,
Do some of you have news from carbug's VW restoration?

I really would love to see this bus restored, as i stupidly missed the opportunity of owning one last year .......


Carbug: post some pics if you're there please don't make you public wait too much.

carbug's Bus is almost done

While it would not be apt for me to upload the pics. Lets wait for him to come back into the country first.

He needs few spares,which i am trying to help him out with, All in all, its just left to the cosmetics before it starts running on the road.

Nice to see this bus again! I incidentally remember seeing it at a local garage (the same one here I guess) a few months ago...it was just in the process of getting the paintjob done then.

BTW, maybe its the pic. but it looks like he's converted the ol' Ambulance into a baywindow?

Yes, this appears to be the plumbing and controls for an Eberspacher or a combustion heater. Quite a rare accessory.

On the Type 2, the heater would be installed in the engine compartment.

If you still have the heater, let me know and I can email a manual that will help you to get it in working order.
Though you probably wouldn't ever need to use it in our weather
