If i'm not mistaken, this one had a diesel engine once. They put back the petrol unit and it caught fire.(Not the whole van, just the engine). This is the same van right??

What is the REGN no of the chevrolet?
Is it now in Trivandrum?
by the way the VW TYPE2 (Microbus) is a late version(1973-1980) .
Does it have the original aircooled 1800 cc engine, disc brakes,etc?
has the owner any idea of selling it in this condition?

please, lets not go off topic here. I wrote this on the basis of some personal experiences, lets leave it at that. Am not interested about the situation in other states, nor do i want to discuss it.
