Been a long time since I posted. Here is a new thread for my Bus. 1955 Wolfsburg Kombi, built in May of 1955. I think I’ve owned this bus for 9-10 years now. Restored the bus to use as a daily driver 6 years or so ago. Bus still looks great. I live in the Gunnison/Crested Butte area and only drive the bus in the warm months. No snow this year so been driving the bus a bunch this year. Would like to do a camper interior in the upcoming year. Hope to see you guys at KCW this summer. Moab trip looked fun. Need to start getting this bus out of town! Franz tuned the engine last summer., still drives like a dream!RustabusParticipantMay 1, 2018 at 4:48 pmPost count: 1653
Yup Wren, you gotta use that Rig!!!!!!!!! 🙂WrenParticipantDecember 10, 2018 at 7:29 amPost count: 145
Been driving this bus forever without insulation, rear panels or rear seat. Had Doug make some plastic panels, headliner and cover a rock and roll seat/bed. Insulated and put everything in the last two weeks. Simple but came out good. Thanks Doug! Planing on raising the bus back up to stock height. Been thinking about it the last couple of years. I like the bus lowered but have been limited on use with the bus. Plus I live on a dirt road.Pat KKeymasterDecember 10, 2018 at 7:36 amPost count: 1096
Nice Wren!! What did u insulate with? Your bus is gong to be so useful again.
We will build it if it comes.WrenParticipantDecember 10, 2018 at 7:37 amPost count: 145
Used that Retro Mat and retro mat headliner. Super easy! Thats what Franz said to use…FranzKeymasterDecember 10, 2018 at 8:43 amPost count: 2870
Cool, glad you were able to scoop that transaxle. Reduction boxes are getting hard to find.John JonesKeymasterDecember 10, 2018 at 11:47 amPost count: 5680
Thats great Wren!!! I bet you use your bus a lot more next year!!! BBB 2019??? 😎 Or are you more up for a shasta trip???? 😎WrenParticipantDecember 11, 2018 at 7:24 amPost count: 145
I’d love to do the Shasta Trip someday… but i”m a baby daddy now and time is never on my side anymore. Want to maybe do VWs on the Green or moab this year if you guys are planing those. I think next summer i’ll do some short Blue Mesa, Kebler pass or La Gartia trips with the bus. I don’t like driving to far these things break down all the time.John JonesKeymasterDecember 11, 2018 at 7:32 amPost count: 5680

Getting this rig lifted up. It had a 3″ narrowed/adjustable beam. We’re going to unflip the splindles and crank it up.
Wren found a nice small nut transaxle on craigslist. I hope it works.BodgocoParticipantFebruary 19, 2019 at 5:21 pmPost count: 54
Thats an amazing bus!
You’ll be stoked when you can get down that dirt road without worrying.FranzKeymasterFebruary 20, 2019 at 7:47 amPost count: 2870
Almost there. Spindles unflipped, and beam adjusters slotted for max lift. Its going to be rad. The narrowed beam is actually going to help with tire clearance and wheel travel.
