56 single cab

Post by south59 on Fri Mar 18 2011, 13:56

finally joined the club legitimately with membership rather than just the forum so thought I would post some more pics of the van in its current state..








The engine is a 2.4 litre beastie and is going to be treated to a turbo system which apparently is out for delivery today!! exciting!

Although the club meet is a slight trek from my house I will make it to a club meeting!

woah, I love it. Can't wait to see it in the metal, especially with a turbo kit...

Though doesn't look like Liam will be able to stand on the roof at VW Action!

Are you based in Highworth?

We tend to drive full throttle as well - but thats only as you're never going to get up any hills in a stock(ish) 1600 bus unless you do! ha ha. 55mph was fine for cruising through Wiltshire yesterday in the sun.

Were down the road in Faringdon, let me know if you're ever about for a beer. Will poss see you at next months AK meet.

hopefully taking the beastie down the track at santa pod, if i can get the turbo running in time will dictate which show:) and yes made the air scoops from some spare plate lying around the garage, could be made cleaner but they do the job, same on the rear safari, figured out the curves from a mini rear opening window are the same as the small window on the van and mocked one up, looks pretty good for 20quid!

Hi Stu & Becca,
Can't wait to see you down the strip in your pick up - it's always looked cool. Are you still getting orders for the canopy's?
Hope that you are OK, See you at club meet soon, give us a call & we will meet you at the garage & then onto the Weyhill.
Helen & Carl

dont think so, couldn't see any A J Simms tags on the parts, although i could be wrong.

Need to start fabricating the intake and exhaust sections and get them fully welded by a my local fabricators.
