I have a great 1970 VW Deluxe Transporter , I purchased from a good friend who is 75 years old . The van had got to the point where is was needing some maintenance and with his age he was feeling like it was time to let it go . I purchased the Van with hopes of having it my daily driver this summer . So I went straight to work on it . I pulled the already good running motor and wanted to reseal it completely . In that process I honed the cylinders and installed new rings . replaced any parts the motor needed .And resealed the entire thing . Including the rear main seal , Installed a new clutch and a different exhaust . The motor is a 1600cc single port , has a brand new generator, and regulator . rebuilt carb. new plugs etc. The transmission is in great shape and shifts smooth and nice as it should . I did a little work on the brakes also . By replacing some wheels cylinders , a brake line and installed new front brake shoes . I also replaced the tires with a new set of 195/75/14 all season radials . For the body condition it has been repainted many , many years ago . But still shines nice and looks good I think . Its in no way perfect and has its bit of character having some chips , a few scratches . and a ding here and there .. But I think its great !! And have way more fun driving an old car that has some character rather than one that's had thousands spend on a new paint job . This bus drives so great its hard to express in words how well it performs . The inside is basically all original , The front seats are in great shape ,as well as the door panels and headliner. The rear seats have some wear and a couple small tears . But nothing a good Mexi Blanket cant cover up .
I Honestly don't want to sell the Bus. Especially after getting all the work done and its driving so good . But I had the opportunity to buy the bus of my dreams recently . And cant keep them all . The Roof Rack and Side step are NOT for sale with the bus . I am using them on my new bus . But for the right price I may include them with the sale ?
If you are looking for a nice solid VW bus that's is ready to drive anywhere now . This is a good one !!

We've received multiple reports that Volkswagen will be bringing a diesel-electric concept to the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, set to take place later this month. The car, called the Twin-Up!, is based on the Up! city car, with some sources claiming this is a thinly veiled concept that will eventually enter production.
Thu, 26 Jul 2012 13:01:00 EST
According to Automotive News Europe, the Twin-Up! will reportedly return 214 miles per gallon on the US cycle by combining an 800-cc, two-cylinder diesel and an electric motor. It will also boast plug-in capabilities, and will be able to cover 30 miles on electric power alone.
Autocar has a more complete picture of the Twin-Up!'s powertrain, though, claiming it's a modified version of the hybrid system found in the Volkswagen XL1. The Twin-Up! will get a more potent, 47-horsepower electric motor to the XL1's 27-hp unit, but will retain that car's 47-hp turbodiesel. The battery pack will also grow, from 5.5 kilowatt hours to 8.6 kWh. Both of these increases are necessary due to the increased weight of the Twin-Up! - it's some 900 pounds heavier than an XL1.
Let's say you're an automaker bent on world domination looking to grow your sales. That's going to have you looking at Asian markets, because that's where some of the biggest growth has been, and that's exactly what Volkswagen is doing as it considers making another run at Malaysia's Proton.
Thu, 13 Nov 2014 12:44:00 EST
Reuters reports that Volkswagen is interested in at least a partial stake, if not a controlling interest in Lotus-parent Proton as a way to continue a production presence in the region without having to build its own factory.
Volkswagen already builds the Passat in a DRB-HICOM facility in Pekan, Malaysia, and plans are in place to build the Jetta and Polo there, as well. With both southeast Asia and its relationship with Proton figuring so importantly in Volkswagen's plans for expansion, buying into Proton can help ensure stability. Volkswagen is being tight-lipped about the whole idea, but CEO Martin Winterkorn did recently say, "it's our clear goal to continue the successful (expansion) course of past years with great dynamics and stability," which sounds an awful lot like deals are on the table to smooth the path to further growth.
As I scoured auction sites and classified ads for the perfect vehicle to take into battle with Autoblog Associate Editor Brandon Turkus, I knew I needed to find something unique. You see, I'm currently 0-2 at winning a round of This or That, in which two of our editors agree on a category, choose a side, and argue it out over a (mostly) friendly chain of emails.
The first time we did this, my chosen Fiat 500 Abarth took about a third of the popular vote in our reader poll. The second time, my lovely 1980 Oldsmobile 442 did just a little bit better against a 1989 BMW 635 CSi. Despite holding the opinion that my automotive choices, though perhaps a little bit more... obscure than my fellow editors, are still better, an outright win would go a long way toward boosting my vehicular self worth a few notches upward.
With all of that out of the way, even if three isn't my lucky number after all, I go into battle against Brandon knowing full well that I've made the perfect choice: A 1987 Volkswagen Vanagon Syncro. My rough-and-tumble van/'ute has a formidable opponent in the form of a 1987 Land Rover Defender, which, truth be told, is exactly what I was expecting from Turkus, a self-proclaimed Rover aficionado.
