OK Peeps - changes may be coming. The 67 Single Cab may be going on the market at some point soon. I bought it about 4 years ago. The Seller found it on a dirt lot in Santee some what stripped of parts. At some point it its life it had a nose replacement that was done roughly. Doors open and close with a bit of effort. I have only driven it about 2500 miles total.
The basics:

A. 67 SC
B. Has a 1600 DP that runs well. The prior owner bought it with the engine installed but had no idea of the internal details on the motor.
C. Engine runs well. Does not smoke or drip a lot of oil. It had no carb or distributor when to PO got it so he bought the finest of Chinese EMPI crap and put them on. EMPI fake 34PICT and fake 009. Considering everything it runs pretty well.
D. The truck tracks surprisingly well compared to the way it was when I bought it. I found out that the (then new) tires were running at 60+ psi, the steering dampner was shot, one front shock was frozen and the other front shock was the wrong size (much longer) and finally the steering box was way too tight. Now (for a split) it tracks pretty good.
E. All 4 shocks replaced with KYBs.
F. Brakes were completely done (shoes, cylinders and hoses) by the PO. Brake master cylinder was not replaced but I have a brand new one that goes with the bus.
G. Tires (C rated) were new when I bought it.
H. Transmission (Big Nut) shifts well. I changed the fluid and it came out pretty clear.
I. The bed had over 100 small drill holes in it. I soldered up the holes, treated the entire bed with rust converter and them covered it all with bedliner to preserve it. There is long thread over on The Samba abut this.
J. Double Treasure chest which is pristine with no rust. Spare tire included with proper hanger.
K. Gates are in decent shape with just a tad bit of bow in the middle of the long sides. They open and close easily.
L. Wolfsburg West replacement bumpers with overriders. They have a bit of surface rust.
M. Painted in grey primer thanks to the PO. L87 white originally.
N. I'll throw in an almost pristine Bentley. Look online and see what these are going for, now.

If anyone local is interested let me know. Pictures will come in a day or two. This deal would not trigger for a while.

Price will be based on the "market" as reflected on other Samba ads.

OK, let us see if I can make this work...

ImageImageImageImage

Other notes:
All electrical works: head/tail lights, turn signals, dash lights, high/low beams, backup (I'm pretty sure).
Remember -- it is is a 67 with factory 12 volts.
Has year-of-manufacture black and yellow California commercial plates.
Has semi-functioning vintage radio in the dash; modern one available to the right purchaser.
3-point seat belts.
Sorry no interior shots. Standard 2/3-1/3 seat. New cover on the driver's seat with bad padding. New cover for the passenger available. Padding on the right hand seat is OK.
Engine is stock 1600 DP. Argh, I'll take a picture next time.
Front trans mount is funky. I have (but have not installed) the Wolfgang mid-mount to forever eliminate the need to screw with the front mount. Check with Ivan for installation service on that one.
Rubber seals to rebuild the door sliding windows are included.

Any ofter questions write or give me a call at 6 1 9 7 3 3 - ocho nueve dos dos.

Sorry for the massive images.

It has not been listed yet! I was trying to give the SV2s crowd advance warning to see if anyone known and local might be interested.
The timing of when to sell it is dependent on a couple of other things happening first.

When (and if) that time comes I will post here first.

Interested? You could be an all split household.

I have a "68" SC that I am considering selling as well as my "56" PG/SG is for sale!
I need to thin the herd!! Just need to get motivated and put it out there.

Yes that one was high on my list of comps as I was trying to set a price. The one in ^^^ that ad has a lot of nasty rust in certain places but has many areas that are much better than ours.

Pulled the SC out of the back yard yesterday. Some friends were bringing over a load of oak firewood and we needed to clear the path to the wood pile. It drove just fine and I parked it in front of the house. Two people stopped by last night to look and both are seriously interested. Even with the flaws. We still have not "advertised" it....

I am notifying them of the asking price and we'll see what transpires.
