German made VW 1978.

"MISS OCEAN" has pressed steel body panels 2-pack paint & vinyl wrap.

 

 

Twin sliding side doors.

 

 

Porsche designed air cooled 4 cylinder engine.

Forward driving cab with wraparound windscreen.

 

 

Stainless steel custom silent pack exhaust system.

Wide alloy wheels and eco low rolling resistance tyres.

 

 

 

 

 

UK Historic vehicle, Tax & MOT exempted in 2018, custom interior.

 

 

The interior is still the subject of planning and pricing. We will be using matching leather and vinyl with carpeting or wood on the floors.

 

Leather will be used in hard wearing areas, where matching or complimentary vinyl could be used on larger areas, provided these panels are not subject to a lot of abrasion.

 

The interior panels will be based on a renewable material such as timber.

 

 

Loading the VW tour bus for a short trip to a paint shop

 

LOW LOADER - August 8 2019, the tour bus is collected for transport to a local spray booth for painting and oven baking. She needs rather more than the usual preparations.

 

 

The Heart of the Ocean wagon, Miss Polly

 

MORE COOLING - Professor Ferdinand Porsche designed this engine for the 'People's Car,' the literal translation of 'Volks-Wagen.' The idea was to produce a car that every citizen in Germany could aspire to. The Citroen 2CV had a similar concept for French farmers. Eco cars are now far more fuel efficient and affordable - because of robotic mass production. These engines powered jeeps and amphibious vehicles in WW2 and are used in light aircraft today.

 

 

WHAT NEXT ?

 

Miss Ocean (Polly) will be used as an Awareness show and tour bus. She will also be available for Weddings from 2020 with hire charges by way of donations gifted to the Cleaner Ocean Foundation.

 

 

 

REPAIR PANELS - Many of the panels for Type 1 and 2 vans are specially batch produced by Alan Schofield. It is possible to completely rebuild a chassis floor with new parts. The front and rear sections of the bodywork are available, including the doors. Both sides of the cab floor needed replacing, to include arches and footwells.

OVEN BAKING - 2-Pack paint is applied at normal room temperatures, then re-flowed in a low temperature oven for a better finish. We were fortunate to have a specialist restoration craftsman locally, who could help with this project. He'll be using an epoxy primer to gain a sound surface to apply a topcoat.
