The cooler looking ones are the older buses with the split windscreen. i.e. a pillar down the middle of the windscreen. Those were the ones associated with the mid 60s/ early 70s hippy movement.

I used to take one of these which was used as a school bus back in the 1970s. If I can recall correctly, the split windscreen can also be pushed up. Nice van... sure brought back memories.

I seriously doubt that there are any split windscreen Type 1s left in Sg. I hope to be proved wrong.

Perhaps you may find them in some still running in Kampongs in Msia.

I wouldn't mind owning one. I've seen a very nicely restored one in peach and offwhite V-piping with lowered suspension (not in Sg) . Very coooool. :bsmilie:

Ah yes the classic combi. Used to drive one long time ago. Very rugged and can take plenty of abuse.:thumbsup: I will always stop to look if ever I find a beetle or a combi. Somehow it just interest me especially those restored ones.

jbma, if you ever decide to own one again, look for my friend, Ah Hai. His email is hai at vesvolk dot com. He should be able to find one for you and restore it to your heart's desire. :)

That combi is one sweet ride. I wouldn't mind finding one to restore myself.

Put two mattresses in the back and sticker on the bumper which reads "If this bus is a rockin don't come a knockin" :bsmilie:
