  3. Nice van mate :thumbsup:
  4. Lovely condition for a RHD.
    2 litre?
    Happy camping.
  5. Looks good. I like the wheels and the colour. Made a list of things to do 7 years ago but it never ends and just gets bigger. Enjoy the ride. :thumbsup:

  6. No 1641cc, the parts to fit box keeps getting fuller!
    I need the old scrolled Volkswagen badge for the tailgate, where can I get one for an economical price?
  7. Welcome . Very nice van. Rear badges are pretty cheap from the usual suspects. Failing that someone always has some at vw shops in the flea market areas.

  12. Looks very nice, great to see another Moonraker on here :thumbsup:

    As LC says, they didn't originally have the Volkswagen script on the back, but had one of these instead:

  15. I can see the plugs in the tailgate so I thought it would be or that or a bike rack.
    I don't have a top engine hatch either? Thought all the late bays had them?
  16. Not all - my last didn't, but surprised yours doesn't being based on a kombi. Maybe has had a replacement panel?
  17. Weer engine hatches just fitted with type 4 engines?
  18. Good choice of van Chris.
