1959 Kombi


These pages show the story of my'59 Kombi. It was the first bus I owned. I restored it to a nicedaily driver status and did all the work myself. My goal was todo a budget custom-resto. In the end it turned out real nice.It now lives in the U.K. with it's new owner.



Here's my bus in the Disney movie "Michael" thatstarred John Travolta. That's the beautiful actress Joey LaurenAdams (Big Daddy, Chasing Amy) who drove the bus in the movie!

The first picture is what it looked like when I brought ithome. I reluctantly paid $700 for it. The entire exterior wasbrush painted with house paint! The second picture is whatit looked like after I painted the body. Make sure and check outthe history of this bus. It's prettyinteresting.
