1958 Old VW Bus Discovery, Part 3, Restoration safari van, 36hp motor rebuild, Runs & Drives!
A continuing series about a 1958 vw bus discovery and restoration. In this
video I rebuild the seized 36hp engine and make the bus run and drive for
the first time in over 3 decades. Previous owners Chris and Beth tell some
really great stories of cross country traveling back in the hippie days in
Glinda (the buses name). See the bus run and drive. In the next episode
already out (1958 VW Bus (part 4) we drive the bus over the rockies and
beyond. A must see video. Peace and love everyone!
UPDATE: We restored the bus and drove it over the rocky mountains with a 50
year old 36hp crank start motor! Watch me crank her up and go. Please watch
all the great sequels to see the awesome adventures road tripping in a 58
safari bus resurrected from the summer of love. These vids are cracklin'
with positive vibes and energy!
I am now looking for another old vw to restore. The older the better.
If you have or know where I can find another really old vw anywhere in the
US in any condition please let me know.
Please contact me anytime at: firstname.lastname@example.org

installed with too little slack to reach a downward-pointing coil. This is

1776cc VW engine
A short clip of me running the 1776 I built a few years ago. The engine
and just about everything else in the video was destroyed when the garage
burned down 2 years ago. I managed to salvage the internals from the
motor, and it's now running dual Weber 40 IDFs. It is currently installed
in an orignal Meyers Manx dune buggy.
