1975 Volkswagen Type II transporter 1.8 Fuel-injected from North America
For the non-performance-minded tinkerer with endless patience
I replaced the clutch & throw-out bearing.
Repaired the leaking exhaust.
Did some impromptu body work.
Replaced head gaskets, Injector O-rings, clutch cable, fuel pump & solenoid.
Is a Canadian bus, so had to deal with rust...
Interior is uncomfortable, I plan on re-padding seats or finding donor later model seats.
Has mystery leaks, floor collects water.
Had to replace Constant Velocity Joint when a torn boot let it run dry.
Fun to work on, quite simple when you get right down to it.
Becomes more than a hobby, constantly on the lookout for donor busses.
Drives like a bus.
Remarkably easy to park.
Uncomfortable seats. Drafty...
Good pickup compared to other carbureted vans I've driven.
Loads of fun.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
