I Love My 1959 VW Bus - A Restored VW 7 Door or Double Door Panel Van
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1959-vw-double-door-van/ to see this beautiful restored 1959 VW Double Door Van. Lots of pics and vids to enjoy! Join us as I walk around one of my favorite vintage buses of all time. This is a beautifully restored 1959 VW Panel Van. This rare VW van has cargo doors on both sides and this unique model is known as a 7 door van or a double door panel van. Most panel vans had cargo doors only on the passenger side but this one has the rare option of doors on both sides. My Uncle Jerry Coffin (the Vintage Volkswagen Club of America Minnesota State Representative for the past 26 years) got me into VW's as a teenager. I therefore grew up with Volkswagens - the person who got my Uncle Jerry interested in VW's was my Grandfather Wilber Coffin. Grandpa taught my Uncle Jerry how to drive in a '57 Double Door Panel Van in about 1970. My Grandfather took my Uncle out to a parking lot after a fresh snow and they practiced slip sliding the van around and regaining control. A 36 hpr engine was also great for learning because it is very forgiving compared with learning how to drive stick in, say, a Z28 Camero. The gear reduction boxes on the old VW Buses helped ease things into gear too. After hearing stories about that '57 Double Door Panel van since I was little, and now having become an avid VW Lover and collector myself, I wanted to see and feel what it was like to drive the bus I had heard about for so many years. Now that I've had the pleasure of experiencing that I can say it is very roomy. Having access to the cargo area from the driver's side is enormously convenient and fun. (Opening both doors and both sides and running right through a bus is something most folks never get the opportunity to do.) This is the van I had restored as a remembrance to my Grandfather. He passed away in 1980. This van is an exact replica. His van even had this style bumpers and safari windows). So as you can guess I would love to keep this van, but I have 9 vans at the moment and some still need more attention than this already beautiful and revived example. This van could be right at home in a museum or any classic show room. Double Door Panel Vans do not get any nicer than this one. Given its rarity I wouldn't be surprised if it was the nicest 7 door van in the World. Please enjoy the photo galleries and videos and read the full story at the link above - thanks for walking along with me around this 59 Panel Van video! Please leave a nice big thumbs up and a like - and don't forget to check out the rest of the videos in our collection.

Red VW bug rebuild
Two year body-off rebuild of a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle. The original 1200 motor was replaced with a 1970's twin port 1600 and the gearbox replaced with a swing-axle one from a late 1500 beetle. Body was bare-metalled and the usual rust prone areas were repaired. This is the beetle that I added a narrowed front beam to in another recent video.
