    Tom pulled the engine this morning. I made a parts list and ordered a bunch of stuff. Then started disassembling the engine. Power washing too.

    Man, so lucky to score a legit bus and take it DIRECTLY to the best place ever to get it dialed. Cool stuff.

    I see the hideous spare tire mount is gone already. 🙂  Good choice!

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Bummer news on the engine.

    I disassembled it to short block. Found a spun #4 rod bearing. It has to go to Painter’s for machine work and rebuild now.

    Damn.  That sucks.   Should we fix?  Or just order a new long block?  Not sure the  cost and time differential.

    A lot of good parts on this engine still. Rebuild for sure.

    We have a pallet going to painters on Monday or tues. I’m going to throw it on there.

    They can probably knock that rebuild out while we’re prepping the rest of the bus.

    Neat bus. Green & white tents are super rare.

    I think some of the Euro buses had early tent mounts past 1965. I’d date that tent earlier though, because of the dark brown leather straps. A tent made in ’67ish would have light grey leather I think.

    I think someone added the jalousies, those would have been unusual for a no port code westy.

    I think someone added the rear headliner hinge cover. That would have come from a 64-65 flipseat, or maybe an so-44 optioned without the rear cabinet.

    That interior has the ’61-’62 cabinet knobs.

    I think there are layers of camper parts there. I bet someone lived close to a junkyard and was grabbing the parts he liked in the early ’70’ies, or maybe he had a 61-62 flipseat which he really liked but it got wrecked and he moved the interior into a new body.

    Cool bus, I’m not putting it down, just don’t think it left westfalia like that.

    You could look for scratches in the door jambs to see if it had an so-42 interior clamped in place. There would be scratches on the right side of the rear hatch jamb and scratches on the rear cargo door pillar.

    Hmmm. No scratches.

    Maybe ordered without interior?

    The theory of the owner having a crashed 61-62 to take the interior from seems the most likely.

    I got the mobile number of the guy who was the 2nd owner.   We will get this all figured out.  I’m hoping the original owner is still around.  It will be fun the document the history and start creating some more.

    Funny how many people have come by to see this rig…  Something new, something different…  something old, something blue…. 😉

    Does it have holes in the drivers side wheel well for the So-42 bed bracket? How about holes in the firewall for the so-42 bed support?

    Negative. No holes in either location.

    No bolts holes for the Z bed base either.

    Table support. Covered in dealer undercoating? Does anybody have close-up of factory welds to compare here.
