Original vehicle was a 1967 Microbus Deluxe, double door, 9 seat vehicle imported from Norway, in 1994.
Full bare metal body repair and re spray in original colours by a VW van specialist, VW Bodyshop at Nantwich. Repainted in original colours, inside, outside and underneath. Invoices enclosed, which are substantial. All window rubbers, interior trim, seat covers, sunroof etc replaced with new. Front seats are original recovered, middle row removed and rear row replaced with rock & roll bed type, covered to match rest of interior. Brand new roof lining at massive expense
Every mechanical component has been replaced with higher specification part.
Front suspension features a Red 9 Design system with double wishbones and Spax coil over shock absorbers. Brakes are vented discs with 4 pot callipers and the steering is rack and pinion.
After fitting the whole suspension set up was aligned by Centre Gravity in Warwickshire.
Rear suspension is based on the later VW Bay window Van. VW Swing arms were used together with a mounting system by Creative engineering. The brakes are the later larger type with special hubs, again from creative engineering to fit the Porsche Fuchs alloys.
The vehicle is lowered slightly as a result of the suspension changes, not massively as is the fashion in some quarters. Exact dimensions are difficult to give as no one now knows what the standard ride height should be.
The Fuchs alloys mentioned above are genuine Porsche wheels in a size of 6 x 16.
They are fitted with 195/55 tyres which give a similar rolling radius to the originals.
The engine is a Subaru 2.0 EJ20. This would have produced 125 bhp in the original car, but with no catalyst, power steering or air con pump is probably giving more than that now. This was fitted by Fellows Speed Shop. The gearbox is a late beetle model to suit the later suspension and has been upgraded to cope with the power and give a higher final drive for smoother cruising and lower fuel consumption. it now gives 30 plus mpg or better than 35 on a long run.
