Back in the mid 60's, there was so much demand for the VW Camper Vans, the factory couldn't keep up. An American company, Riviera stepped in and convert base model VW buses with their version of a VW Campmobile - Hence, the Riviera Version. This is an fine example of that product and I made every effort to keep everything original This bus is in amazing condition for being 46yrs old, but there are some things with some wear and tear. E.g. seats (see picture) and there is a small rock chip on the split windshield
I bought the bus from the 2nd owner, with only 82375 miles and he told me they were original miles. I believe it. In the restoration there were many objects and items that had factory numbers on them.
Body
 There were two small spots of rust: 1" in front passenger floorboard and some small spots below cargo doors. Both were repaired with welded steel. That was it for the entire bus. The only damage I am aware of was in the front, where there had been a very minor accident. I had this repaired and repainted the entire car back to original color scheme. There was also several parking lot dings. The aluminum windows were taken out at this time and re-polished.
INTERIOR
 Doors and interior were paneled with DYNAMAT to reduce road noise. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. The original Riviera wood panels were re-sealed. Linoleum floors were replace with non-aspestos tiles. The sink and seat consoles can be easily removed should one want to use it as a "Van"
ENGINE
 Overhauled. Pistons were upgraded to 1600cc and dual port heads, which were CC'd to exact size on both banks. Rods and Pistons matched and balanced. Ending compression was 125psi for all cylinders.
GAS TANK - Removed, refurbished, new sensor
RUNNING GEAR
Bearings were replaced in the reduction gears. Trans - nothing done as it was still tight

Many other things done, but you will have to call me.  575 534 7995
This bus is the last of the COOL split window buses and it was the first to be fitted with Factory 12V. Everything works: All running lights, night lights, interior lights, windshield wipers, horn and radio (sometimes intermittent - will have it factory rebuilt) - A GREAT CAR!

2014 Volkswagen XL1 [w/video]

Mon, 11 Mar 2013 11:57:00 EST

World's Most Efficient Car Impresses, Not Without Compromises
Among our many duties at the recent Geneva Motor Show, we were offered a pretty exclusive drive in the new Volkswagen XL1 hyper-efficient plug-in diesel hybrid. There is so much that is interesting about a car like this reaching production from a major automaker that it's tough to know where to begin.
First off, you should know that - at least for this generation - there is absolutely no chance in Albuquerque that this "1-liter vehicle" (i.e. a vehicle that can burn just one liter of fuel to travel 100 kilometers, or 62.1 miles) will ever make it into the hands of North American customers. We, too, were having trouble imagining an XL1 in typical American traffic, surrounded by comparatively massive pickups and SUVs. The driving experience had us recalling a couple of weeks in 1999 when we drove the then-revolutionary Honda Insight hybrid on US roads. We keenly remember the feeling of being very small and vulnerable, even as we felt proudly green in our 61-mpg Tochigi pod. Thing is, the Volkswagen is smaller still, and nearly as light despite its more complex drivetrain and safety features.

Volkswagen CrossBlue previews a three-row future, diesel-hybrid power [w/video]

Mon, 14 Jan 2013 11:15:00 EST

Volkswagen looks to be getting ready to jump into the large three-row crossover game. The automaker has officially pulled back the curtain on the CrossBlue Concept at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.
Designers and engineers penned the machine specifically for the Canadian and US markets, and with a plug-in diesel electric hybrid drivetrain, the hulking five-door, at least in concept form, should offer substantially better efficiency than anything else on the market. The drivetrain pairs a 2.0-liter turbo diesel four-cylinder engine with two electric motors for a combined output of 305 horsepower and a ludicrous 516 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed dual-clutch gearbox handles shifting detail, while one electric motor spins the front wheels. The second motor spins the back axle independently, make the CrossBlue a through-the-road hybrid.
As a result, the crossover can pop to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds. Perhaps more impressively, the CrossBlue can whir around on all-electric propulsion for up to 14 miles at up to 75 mph. Once the diesel four kicks in, the drivetrain can yield up to 39 mpg, though Volkswagen says the hardware can hit 89 MPGe on a full charge thanks to a 9.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Check out the full press release below for more information.

Volkswagen to add 50k jobs by 2018

Thu, 04 Apr 2013 08:00:00 EST

Volkswagen still has its eyes set on becoming the top global automaker by 2018, and to get there, it's apparently going to need more boots on the ground. Automotive News Europe is reporting that VW is looking to increase its staff by 50,000 over the next five years - an increase of nine percent - which does not include an increase in its US dealer network.
According to the report, a majority of the growth will come from China where the automaker is also looking to double its production capacity in the same time frame. The Volkswagen Group is already expected to rival General Motors for the top sales spot in China this year, and such a rapid expansion in the region could make a good springboard for sales increases in other countries.
