7mm petcock arrived yesterday. I’m going to sandblast the gas tank and get it ready for paint today. Then I’m going to switch gears and work on putting the race car back together. No rear bumper on early barndoors…so you get full view of the a1 sidewinder. I also located 4 original 14mm head apron bolts.
Love all the details.. Franz doesn’t miss a thing… He’s the best in my opinion… 😎ColeBModeratorDecember 19, 2019 at 9:26 pmPost count: 2251
Franz is killing it!
ya, orange lens is a euro lens. It will do until we can source a red US spec one.
kb pulled out some of the cool info we got from the previous owners. As you know they were very meticulous. Cool og brochure and birth certificate. Been talking with Patrick Hall because this truck is close in production to the deluxe he just pulled out of Canada. I think this truck was maybe on that first Canadian vw shipment with that deluxe. The shipment was nov 52 and this truck was finished the month prior. Pretty cool history! Going to keep talking to Patrick to find out more!FranzModeratorDecember 20, 2019 at 9:15 amPost count: 4282
Do you have a date on the picture Cole?
That would be insane if its the same truck.Pat KModeratorDecember 20, 2019 at 10:11 amPost count: 2065
Is that $1595 for a complete vehicle? I’ll take five please!
We will build it if it comes.ColeBModeratorDecember 20, 2019 at 1:52 pmPost count: 2251
I think it’s the same truck… that’s the first and only dealership at the time in Canada. And I’m assuming they only brought one sc over to that dealer on the first shipment. Got confirmation from Patrick that our sc is the oldest bus vin on that first Canada shipment. Pretty cool.ColeBModeratorDecember 26, 2019 at 11:03 amPost count: 2251
Any word on the lever shocks? Also, have you seen the MarkL package? Just trying to see when this will be finished so I can come grab it! PsychedFranzModeratorDecember 26, 2019 at 12:29 pmPost count: 4282
Yeah the package arrived. No word on the lever shocks. I’ll call and find out.JohnnybarndoorParticipantJanuary 3, 2020 at 11:04 amPost count: 74
According to my tracking number those lever shocks were delivered on the 23rd of dec, might be worth calling and seeing what’s up franz
happy new yearColeBModeratorJanuary 6, 2020 at 9:19 amPost count: 2251
I’m trying to plan a time to come fly out and drive this to KB’s. Any time that is better for you guys?
also, are there interior panels with the truck? It would’ve had door and kick panels correct? Just no roof panel?FranzModeratorJanuary 6, 2020 at 10:05 amPost count: 4282
We’ll see how it goes Cole. This is a tough project. I would guess end of the month. Working on it today.ColeBModeratorJanuary 6, 2020 at 8:16 pmPost count: 2251
Cool. Psyched to come down and pick it up. Will be good to hang for a couple days. Let me know what you’re thinking and I will book flights!FranzModeratorJanuary 7, 2020 at 7:48 amPost count: 4282
The gas tank is a truck only item. Notice the outlet location is closer to rocker for petcock access.
I spread a bunch of JB weld on rust pits like bondo. It’s more resistant to fuel.John JonesModeratorJanuary 7, 2020 at 1:07 pmPost count: 7980
Such a cool truck.. soooo many special items… Big Man Early shit!! 😎
