Clint's bus finished and collected today!
A lot of work went into this stunning 57 RHD van.
Delays due to covid and parts on backorder meant it was here a lot longer than anticipated, but we all think it's been worth it.
Countless hours getting the new panels fitting properly and then the paint ( don't ask how many hours went into that part of the job! ) Then the extensive build. Limebug 4" beam. CSP brakes. Full IRS conversion. 1600 twin port with 34 ICTs and CSP python exhaust makes it a very comfortable ride with a bit of power to move it along.
The team here have bust their balls to make this one of the nicest buses we have built.
Thanks to the guys at Auto Craft Engineering UK Ltd Alan H Schofield Ltd Just Kampers Heritage Parts Centre Limebug VW Limited Krautclassicparts Custom & Speed Parts and @DesiYates for top quality service and dealing with endless calls for all the good stuff we needed to complete this project, also Matt and Sarah for outstanding work on the trim. Many thanks to Clint for trusting us with the build of his pride and joy!
Have a great weekend.
Cheers from the team @ westcoast vw

Our lovely VW Beetle is now for sale, full description below.
Low mileage (documented) original 1969 UK RHD VW Beetle 1200, tax & MOT exempt.
Sold new by Green Arrow Garage, Hessle and registered on 1st December 1969 to a Mr T R Newlove of Scarborough.
The car then stayed in the same family ownership (39 years) until 2008. During this period the car was dry stored and unused for 17 years between 1991 to 2008.
The car was then sold to the second owner in 2008 @ 43286 miles and had very little use until sold to the third owner (a VW enthusiast) in 2019 @ 46217 miles. The car was then the subject of a sympathetic restoration over a 2-year period.
We purchased the car @ 46968 miles, with the odometer now @ 49584 miles.
The car is very solid with matching numbers and has the original 1200 engine, original gearbox, body shell and floor pan. The car has never been welded and has a documented mileage via various old MOT’s.
The engine has no end float, runs very sweetly and has had a recent oil service. The carburettor has been upgraded to a H30/31 and the dynamo replaced with an alternator. A new clutch was fitted during the restoration, as has a recently fitted new front disc brake kit in place of the original drums, which have been retained and will be sold with the car.
Heat exchangers, exhaust and rust-free heater channels are all in good working condition.
4 x matching Continental tyres are fitted, all with good tread and a spare wheel is also present. The steering is very tight, with new rod ends recently fitted.
Exterior bodywork is very clean and rust free, having been re-painted during the restoration. There are a few very minor blemishes now showing.
Bumpers are triple chrome plated, with new hardware fitted.
The interior is original although a carpet kit and insulation were fitted during the restoration. The headlining is spotless and in excellent condition.
The original electrics are all in good working order, and additional equipment such as USB sockets, 12V socket, electric washer kit, Hella front driving lights, Hella front fog lights, Hella rear reversing light, Lucas rear fog light, map/interior lights, battery cut off switch, heated rear screen and a wood rim steering wheel fitted to make the car more user friendly. All the electrical work was carried out by a professional auto electrician.
The original steering wheel and various other original parts will be sold with the car should the new owner wish to return to standard specification.
Historic documentation and recent receipts are also available to view, and the car has 2 keys.
The Beetle participated in the 2022 Monte Carlo Classique, where she covered 1972 miles, performing flawlessly throughout and is now offered for sale.
Overall, she is a beautiful example of a genuine unmolested UK RHD 1969 1200 VW Beetle and needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.

Did you know that a common failure point on the 996, 987 and 997 Porsche models is the waterpump? This is why MEYLE have produced an HD version. The bearings have been uprated to perform better with contaminated coolant and the silicon carbide/silicon carbide seal faces are more resistant to abrasive dirt that can be found in the coolant all helping to increase component life and reduce the chance of a leak.

📣 This week's is a 1962 slammed VW Splitscreen owned by Mitch 🤙

“I remember the day I first saw the bus, I was out for a cruise in my brothers 73 bug, ( I had my mk4 r32 for sale at the time) , I received a Facebook message from a guy wanting a swap deal for the r32, after many people wanting swaps for their 02 plate Corsa I was a bit sceptical. However, I was shocked and immediately listed all my old cars and parts for sale in a desperate attempt to raise the funds towards the swap.

The day I picked it up on the trailer it was in a sorry state with the roof and gutters rotten and some patching needed in various places, the thoughts soon arose to slam it on hydraulics and within 3 months we had home made a full hydraulic suspension kit out of an old tipper motor and some short rams, it drove awful (due to bad setup) , however I still sent it around the country last year to Cornwall, Manchester and many other shows.

Toward the back end of last year and into 2022 , my Father, Brother and I have ripped out all the hydraulic set up and completely re designed the mounts to take air lift bags and an airlift 3p management system.

It’s sat on some one of a kind 3 piece split rims , built by the wonderful Nick Holroyd at NH automotive , Nick has been a great help with the sizing of the wheels and being patient with me when I didn’t even know if they would fit. I have also been lucky enough to be sponsored by @stjarnagloss last year, Jack at stjarna is a great guy and I appreciate him taking on such a unfinished project , hopefully it’ll fulfil all the wild plans I’ve bored him with this year now that it’s 99% done.”

🤓 Did you know that the record number of people to cram into a VW Beetle is 57! This was accomplished by a trained group of climbers who used every single inch of the cabin and even had people climb onto the roof. Before this record was set the previous record was 32 people, all of which were INSIDE the vehicle!

📣 This week's comes from the Netherlands 🇳🇱 ! Today we have a Volkswagen Apline White Golf Mk2, owned by Koen van Haren 🤙

“The car hobby began when I was about 13 years old, helping my dad with his Ford Mustang Mach 1 from 1973. It was a total restoration project back to factory stock. When I was old enough to get my own car I got a Volkswagen Golf MK4 TDI, did a total respray on that, 18 inch wheels, coilovers and much more updates. Eventually selling it in 2019, and then I bought the MK2.

When I bought the MK2 it was a totally original Volkswagen Golf mk2 1.6 8v Manhattan from 1989. First things I did was coilovers, hoodscoop and wheels. After a while I dipped the car since I wanted to change the color temporarily, then I was thinking about getting the engine swapped, that’s when I meet my best friend. He helped me swap the Mk2 with a Golf Mk3 2.0 8v engine, since then I did the brake update, swapped the seats with recaro gti-editions from a Mk3 and restored a set of BBS RS772.

After all this, I decided the Mk2 is going for a different look, and did the welding, bodywork and painting the car, this project recently completed, fitted G60 bumpers, with arches and skirts, powered windows, central locking, votex spoiler, reupholstered the doorcards with suède, fitted a windshield with blue sun strip, and added a powerrohr intake pipe to the engine. I also just got a GTI Cluster with working MFA.

At the moment I am rebuilding a GTI rear axle and swap the GTI front brakes for G60 front brakes, since I thought this would be a nice winter project, updates about this is coming soon on my Instagram page.

As the summer is coming, I am thinking about enjoying the Mk2! Attending meets, do lots of photo shoots and enjoy with friends and family. For the future, the engine bay needs a good paint job, as does the engine. Also looking for electric side mirrors, cruise control, votex mid console, and powered headlight levelers. Lots to do!”

Paul is pretty clear...“It’s not a collection. That would assume there was a pattern of logic applied to what I buy. As it happens, I get cars I like, and typically I’ll buy one, and then another which needs some work, but has some nice bits on it, so I’ll buy that too!” 🤷 See more of this amazing classic vehicle selection and read about Super Duper Garage here: https://bit.ly/Paul_Harding_Super_Duper_Garage

Die dieser Woche kommt aus dem schönen Erzgebirge in Deutschland! Heute haben wir einen Volkswagen Corrado VR6, im Besitz von Christopher 🤙

Hallo, mein Name ist Christopher und ich bin 18 Jahre alt. Das ist mein Volkswagen Corrado VR6, Baujahr 1993 und hat ca. 230.000km auf der Uhr. Gekauft habe ich ihn am 13.02.2021. Der Corrado ist nicht mehr im Originalzustand da Er umgebaut worden ist. Umgebaut wurde Folgendes:

- Kühlergrill mit bösem Blick, Gewindefahrwerk von Koni, S2 Edition Felgen mit Spurplatten, Sportauspuffanlage, Sportlenkrad, Radkästen wurden verbreitert, Heckklappe wurde gecleant, Kennzeichen wurde in die Stoßstange versetzt

Ich habe mich für einen Volkswagen Oldtimer entschieden, da meine Eltern schon Volkswagen gefahren sind. Z. B. Golf 2 GTI, Golf 3 VR6... Ich bin sozusagen mit Volkswagen groß geworden und für mich kam nichts anderes infrage.
🌏 This week's comes from the beautiful Erzgebirge in Germany! Today we have a Volkswagen Corrado VR6, owned by Christopher 🤙

Hello, my name is Christopher, I am 18 years old and this is my Volkswagen Corrado VR6, built in 1993. It has about 230,000km on the clock. I bought it on 13.02.2021.
The Corrado is no longer in its original condition because it has been rebuilt. The following was rebuilt:

- Radiator grille with evil eye, Koni coilover suspension, S2 Edition rims with track plates, sport exhaust system, sports steering wheel, wheel arches widened, tailgate cleared and the number plate was moved into the bumper.

I decided to buy a Volkswagen classic car because my parents already drove Volkswagens. E.g. Golf 2 GTI, Golf 3 VR6... I grew up with Volkswagens, so to speak, and nothing else came into question for me.

📣 This week's is a 1985 Volkswagen T25 affectionately named ‘Kathy’ , owned by Abii 🌸 🤙

“I never had a background with VW’s but always dreamt of living the free hippie lifestyle everyone talks about with VW campers. Somehow along the way when I was very young, a Volkswagen T25 became my dream vehicle (I’d never even seen one in real life).

I planned out what the perfect specifications were for me and had no intentions to buy until I had a bigger budget. However, I got my van in Skegness after seeing an advert on Facebook marketplace about 6 months earlier than intended. I jumped at the opportunity and rushed to see it before anyone else as it met every single one of the criteria I had, and I took it home the next day!

Since then, I’ve changed the alloys it came with for the classic steels with hubcaps, swapped the chunky black chairs for botanical print to match my theme, changed the flooring and given the van a respray (by myself!) from blue to pink. I plan on getting her all mechanically sound in whatever ways are needed this spring before my summer road trip and am in the middle of updating the interior too! As far as future plans go, knowing these vans she’ll definitely have a few in mind too!"
