Not sure if the mustard cloth was one year only (73 MY). Mine has some still under the seat covers.
Do you know anybody who does supply the Westfalia Mustard Yellow fabric on the roll .... i want to keep the Original look and would like to re-cover the back seats....VW NLA still havent got round to sorting out supply of it.
I've not seen any available off the roll in the UK. I think someone in Germany sells it but can't remember who.
Mine has all original mustard coverings but I have always liked the jaffa tartan Westy stuff and was tempted at the NLA stand in Volks World this year...

Reprowesty or serialkombi sell it I think?
After faffing about trying to get my rear brakes to function properly due to worn out components on my August ‘72 Continental I nicked the innards from my ‘76 project’s rear brakes and it’s been fine ever since. I went as far as welding up the spreader bar slots and re cutting them, but in the end functioning brakes won over originality.
I defy anyone other than folk as geeky as us to either notice nor care!
I have a fuel cap not flap.
An old style steering column.
Lock in slider door handle.
Build October 13 1973 as a kombi. Imported into Ramsgate. First registered March 1975.
Everything else about bus is later style.
So a 1974 model year bus then. Seems they were still using up older parts then if its all original.
That’s about right time wise. Post Aug 73.
I think it left the steering assembly to change. The sticky out seams only lasted 12 months after the defo panel was added.
The lock in handle doesn’t seem to fit the bill though?
Will early sliders fit late vans?
I think the keyhole on its own started 75
I can't see why it wouldn't
We did think it was Aug 73.
I still think it was.
