Thought it was worthy of a post.:)
He has thousands of hours in it I'm sure, and took him well over a year.
He was looking for a Pop Top to start with, and still is, but this one came up and everything about it was right, so he went for it.
The Motor was professionally built, by a well known "Old School" Builder, and its very healthy!
Trans and rear end was rebuilt too...
I will talk to him today and get some more info... I forgot what the specs were.
His choices for trim, and color, are spot on.
van has lots of subtle upgrades, like soundproofing and insulation. The Van drives beautifully, and is smooth and quiet... probably better than it did new!!
For my part, I lent tools, and equipment use, and helped him with glass installation etc, but he is a skilled artisan himself, and has done several restorations over the years...
He knows what he is doing, and I think it shows!
I have a great Video of it driving, but cant figure out how to post it...
