How things happen in the VW world

Post by Hobug on Mon Dec 01, 2008 6:08 pm

Yesterday, Nov 30th, I sold and delivered my 67 bus to its new owner. He was very happy to get her and planned to start on her right away. His plan is to only fix what body parts have to be replaced to make it drivable. He is even going to keep the multi-layer paint. The mechanical parts will all be rebuilt or replaced and once it is ready to be a daily driver it will become his work bus.
The really cool thing is that once he got it, he was checking the M-codes and discovered that Nov 30 1966 was its BIRTHDAY. On its 42nd birthday the bus found a new home and is going to go back to running up and down the roads. Pretty sweet deal for a bus that sat for 21 years waiting for a day like this. Very Happy

This is TRUE....you can't make stuff like this up.

Cool just so happens from the info on the Samba VIN numbers, mine was produced in Oct '66 and I drove it around the block early in Oct. of this year. Cool stuff guys.

Here is something to chew on. I just bought a bus last month. It is a Safare' camper. It spent all of its life in California all but the last four years spent in Washington. cheers
The production date is 04/15/1970. My birthday is 04/16/1970. The date that the camper conversion was completed was 04/17/1975. Cool
Talk about crazy scratch
