Dave's 1967 Swedish Import Panel Van

The Bus is a 1967 LHD Swedish import panel van, it started off its life as a tailors van, being used for ferrying around rolls of material etc. This was the case until early in 1998 when it was purchased by its builder, Mattias Scholz. The van was totally stripped, and taken back to bare metal before having the Volvo Saffron Gold and VW Silver applied. The paint was then topped off with five coats of clear lacquer. Wheels are 15" polished American Eagle 5 spokes. The front beam has been replaced with an original item, and dropped using a combination of lowering spindles and turning the beam. Suspension on the back end is IRS, and each corner is equipped with gas adjustable shocks.

The motor was a new Brazilian block 9000km ago, and has been built as a 1835, and has a bugpack cam. It runs twin Dellortos, and has a remote oil filter and cooler, with an electric fuel pump. Electrics are 12v, with alternator. The back end is panelled out, and has a rock "n" roll bed. There is a CD player with a pair of 6x9 speakers and a 12" sub under the rear seat. I bought the van last summer, but because of personal reasons it never saw the road much, but I plan to use it much more this year, keep an eye at the shows ;o)
