The Volkswagen Bus

September 30, 2009

I am starting a new catergory: Bus for all the posts about our new car: A 1975 Volkswagen Riviera Bus. Tonya and I have been looking for one for about a month. We found ours on craigslist and picked it up (we needed a trailer) on Friday September 25th. We will be posting details about the restoration and then the camping trips we have in Matilda. I will start with some “before” pictures to give an idea of what we are starting with.

The next post will outline our vision for Matilda and our progress so far.

    nice bus! Good luck with the restoration. I also am restoring a 75′ riviera vw bus. Can’t wait to get it running!

    I just had some wind damage to the top on my 81 vanagon Now I have no top. Are you aware of anybody or company that is manufacturing these tops? I would appreciate any leads you can give me. Thanks, Bill in Astoria, Oregon

      My best idea would be to find a used top on craigslist or one of the forums. I would check lovemybus.com and bugswest.com. You might look around on busdepot.com for new parts.
