Been a while since I've posted anything up but thought I'd do a bit of an update.

Currently my 62 is about a fortnight from painting with Cross Rods in Nambucca Heads NSW. It went straight from the VW Spectacular last August into the panel shop for some much needed love. Although the rat look was cool it really did need a freshen up and the litres of brushed on house paint to be stripped back. It went for sand blasting last September and since then has been smoothed out considerably. Without spending double what I've already spent on it for panel work, it will never be a dead smooth show winner but will be a lot nicer for the plans I have for it.

The original plan was for a repaint in matte black and white again with new signwriting, however in the meantime the Bridgetown double door panel van has been purchased so plans have been slightly changed. Patrick and I have a plan in the making so the 11 window is now getting a satin white and light cream paint with some deluxe trim and the panelvan will become my daily driver.

Photos of the 11 Window are here:

And the panel van is here:

I'll add some more updated photos soon Smile


thanks all,

Brian

Hey Brian, nice cruisers!

When I heard about the Bridgetown bus I had visions of dragging the thing up a 30deg red mud slope! Shocked Good to see it wasn't that bad. Laughing

Not sure on the numbers. There are numbers stamped in the chassis behind the motor both on the left side and also the right side.

The air intake and guard was an odd one, it initially appeared like a factory mistake but there's no way they would have had 1963+ guards in the Melbourne factory in 1961. Although whoever has done the repair has done it a very long time ago and done such a good job it is hard to tell it apart from new.

I'll be replacing that section back to an early vent and guard lip sometime in the near future.

It was owned by roo shooters at one stage then bought by a local Bridgetown English teacher at the school who had a citrus farm. It was used as a farm truck and also taught his kids to drive in it (probably hence the large number of dings)

Then the local cafe owners dad bought it and it's sat in the shed and lean-to for a good decade or two.

Sure is. Bridgetown. Sam from Manjimup showed us all where it was back in 2006(?) when we did a weekender down there. The owner was determined not to sell it then so it's sat in his shed for the last six years. I think he'd realised he doesn't have the time so it went up for sale.

hahaha thankfully there was an alleyway next door and we could squeeze the flatbed down it to get it out. And typically it was bucketing rain the entire time Smile
