Beautiful Geelong VW Bus

6 12 2015

Super clean and shiny late bay window kombi spotted some weeks ago on the water front in Geelong, Australia. Someone has invested quite some time and money, but in a subtle way. The paint job may be new and could be Bahama Blue Metallic, VW color code L99F, which would date it to 1978 (see this Australian colors summary). Overall a very original look, but in detail refined with Fuchs wheels, front indicators colorless instead of yellow, non-stock exhaust system, and new sliding windows on all four side windows in the back. The windows come without the aluminum or chrome rim of the seventies originals, so are probably the new ones one can still get, produced for Volkswagen do Brasil. It has a Victorian Club permit registration (see also this older post). What a beautiful VW bus!

I also have a Bahama Blue kombi, in Sydney. If I could work out how to attach a photo, I would. I believe the colour dates back to 60’s beetles but is stunning on the kombi. I’ve received many compliments regarding the colour.
