Matt's 1966 Rhd 13 Window
This bus is currently undergoing a full restoration. As you can see the van is now fully welded and we are trial fiting all the running gear. We are doing this to enable us to make any modifications before the bus goes to paint. Upfront it is stood on its new narrowed and lowered adjustable beam with drop spindles whilst out back its running a beetle straight axle with bear motor sport gearbox, type3 rear brakes and an adjustable spring plate set up.
