Hi everyone,

I sell to you here my lovely Project. I have been working on the car for over 9 months now but am becoming a daddy this days. So I need to quit soon to make room and time for this new project. Thats the reason why I offer my Camper to someone who is willing to finish it. The hole car is finished to 65 %. My reserved price is only the costs for the materials, paint and parts. The work and time is not included, because thats the fun in the whole project.

Here is what I have done so far:

- Pre-cleaned the whole bus

- Got the entire interials out

- Took the windows out for sand stripping

- Sand stripped the whole chasis and many parts

- Repaired the broken or rusted body areas and filled them up

- Used Bando, primer and sanded the whole bus

- Painted the bus (PlastiDip) and almost all the parts

- Cleaned and rebuilt chrome parts, lights, radio, speedometer and other things

- Bought a CD-Player System and a Bass Box and other speakers and cables

- engine, starter and transmission are professionally rebuild (New Seals, Engine is not yet tested)

- New white wall Hankook tires, wheels newly painted and chrome hubcaps rebuilt (quite nice)

- Roof is cleaned, sanded, painted and reinstalled (works good, tent is missing) 

- Fuel tank, firewall, fuel intake and engine area are rebuild

- Electric System checked by a professional (nearly everything can be used again) 

- All small parts come in boxes or small bags

Here is what you need to do to finish it:

- Complete engine with the missing piston rings and one cylinder head needs to be cut to the right size for the bore ( I have done the hole engine together with a professional german volkswagen mechanic)

- Replace transmission seals and add new Hydraulic Oil (Shifts well so far) 

- Install engine, transmission and muffler

- Install dashboard and speedometer, radio

- Install windows

- Install several bulbs

- Change clutch cable

- Check and maybe replace brake pads or system (Brakes are still working)

- Check and maybe replace shock absorbers (They are still working)

- Install door lock system and window system on both passenger and driver door

- Get started with the interior the way you like (I can provide old front and back seats)

- Install rear bumper and install or buy some seals

- Buy and install Volkswagen logo on the front (I planed to install that when I am finished)

- Repair hot air tube under the bus

- Install wipers and window clean system

- Install Power-inlet on side of the Camper

What is Part of the Deal:

Because it will be too many pictures to show everything I give you a summary of the main part groups you are getting: 

- The BUS with new wheels, tires and so on (Ready to Roll) 

- Engine (Cleaned and Rebuild with new Carburetor, Intake and so on)

- Transmission (Cleaned with a professional rebuild Starter on it)

- All Windows (Include NEW Front Windshield, old one was cracked)

- New Oil for Engine and Transmission

- Sound System (Bass Box, Super 8 Radio, original VW Radio, CD Radio)

- New parts for over 2000 $, All bills will be provided

- Front and backseats (Just removed and not rebuild yet)

- Several Tools (Floor Jack, Stands, Ramps and so one)

- Screws and small parts (nearly everything you need packed in boxes)

How can You get the Bus:

I recommend you come with a PICKUP TRUCK or a big VAN or SUV. Bring a Trailer that is able to hold the camper. The total weight of all the stuff is around 3400 lb. I am storing a lot stuff like the Transmission and a lot of small parts inside the bus right now. Small parts are packed in a dozen boxes. You also need a place to store the rear bumper, all windows and the front and back seats. The TRAILER you bring should be equipped with a wench to pull the bus on the Trailer. Pushing it on the Trailer by hand could maybe be to heavy.

The bus is in a quite good condition so far, but I am just a normal guy and not a volkswagen specialist. So I strongly recommend for you to look before you buy. There will be no negotiation after the auction. Please be sure you agree to all the terms in the auction. Bus ist 43 years old and not new!

VW readying CC Shooting Brake?

Mon, 11 Feb 2013 10:58:00 EST

This was bound to happen. Volkswagen's relentless drive for big volume has the brand mining seemingly every niche it can find for additional sales worldwide. And with its CLS Shooting Brake, fellow countryman Mercedes-Benz has already shown that a wagon based off of a "four-door coupe" can look dead sexy and command extra dollars. So it follows that the Volkswagen CC (whose existence is all but directly attributable to the success of the original CLS sedan) will also get a load-lugging variant. That's according to the UK's Autocar, which notes that the five-door will come in the CC's next generation.
According to the report, the next CC will be available in front and all-wheel drive variants with the usual assortment of gas and diesel four-cylinders found in the Wolfsburg empire, with the possibility of a gas plug-in hybrid model, too. The rakish estate will ride atop VW's MQB architecture, a shorter variant of which is also found underneath the new Golf. The scalable chassis is set to spread like kudzu throughout the company's lineup, but the CC probably won't happen until after the launch of the next European-market Passat in 2015.
Will we get it in North America? Hard to say. Volkswagen sells the standard CC saloon here, but not in particularly large numbers, and when the company moved to a North American-specific Passat, it dumped the wagon variant. The traditional VW estate apparently continues to pick up sales momentum abroad, however, making the CC Shooting Brake a seemingly natural fit for buyers who still want the utility of a two-box form but can afford to sacrifice a bit of cargo room in the name of style.

Volkswagen Passat gets Wolfsburg Edition, priced from $23,495*

Tue, 23 Apr 2013 18:30:00 EST

Volkswagen has just announced a new Passat Wolfsburg Edition, which slots between the base S and mid-grade SE trims in terms of content and price. The automaker has not released any official photos of the car as of this writing (aside from the badge shot you see here, of course), but the Wolfsburg Passat will be visually set apart from the rest by a unique set of 16-inch alloy wheels.
The big host of upgrades for the Wolfsburg Edition are found inside, where buyers will enjoy standard amenities like leatherette seats (with bun-warmers on the front chairs), a power driver's seat, satellite radio and a media interface with iPod connectivity. Of course, this comes on top of the already standard Passat features like Bluetooth and auto on/off headlamps. The Wolfsburg Passat will only be available with the 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission.
Look for the 2013 Wolfsburg Edition Passat to hit dealerships in the very near future, priced from $23,495, *not including $795 for destination. Have a look below for Volkswagen's official press blast.

Volkswagen Group names Paefgen head of classics program

Tue, 04 Oct 2011 08:00:00 EST

You may remember the name Franz-Josef Paefgen. Until recently, the German engineer and executive was head of both Bentley and Bugatti. Before that he was chief executive of Audi, after working for several years at Ford. He technically "retired" earlier this year, but like the cars he helped create, an executive like Paefgen could never really retire. So it should come as little surprise that the Volkswagen Group has named Dr. Paefgen head of its Classic program.
In his new capacity, Paefgen will oversee the historic automobile activities of the entire VW Group, including those of Volkswagen, Seat, Skoda, Audi, Lamborghini, and of course Bentley and Bugatti. It strikes us as a suitable semi-retirement for the man responsible in no small part for the Bugatti Veyron and Bentley Mulsanne, to name just two, and who was decorated in 2006 by the ACO as the "Spirit of Le Mans" for his contribution to endurance racing. Read the official announcement after the break.
