Betty Bus

1960 Volkswagen Panel Bus

Before

A much-loved, “experienced” old girl, this 1960 Volkswagen Panel Bus, Betty Bus, had accumulated some rust over the years. OK, a LOT of rust, as in the “watch out walking near her because she bites!” kind of rust. Rumor has it there might have been a fence post holding her together. Betty began her life as a panel bus, and was converted into a camper in New York State.

After

Betty Bus will be a beauty of a 1960 Volkswagen Panel Bus. We’re doing a Level 3 restoration on her (out of 5 levels).

Here are some of the juicy details:

  • Silver and gray base
  • 1600 cc engine
  • Straight axel transmission
