      It was almost a "bus." Almost a "pick-up" too.

      Good times except for the arrest and the cow in the middle of a dark-assed road and drum brakes on all four wheels..

        I am sure it was a beautiful shade of yellow
        and that the four drum breaks would have been fine if you knew how to fix them .

        And I do not want to know what you were doing with that cow when you got arrested . I'm not into that !

      Bumpers aren't tapered at the ends, door handle has a button. '66 or '67. Euro pop top.

        Thanks, Everbody. While I don't think it's a '66 or later (Here's a '66; note the single-pane windshield, included in every model thereafter), it might well be a '65.

        (My family actually owned three VW Microbuses, starting with, oh, about a '64 or so. Sliding cloth sunroof, the works. Good times, good times . . . )

        •  The photo in that link is not of a 66 . (0+ / 0-)

          Thats a later baywindow , 73-79 .
          The shape of the front bumper and the high front blinkers shows that its a later baywindow .
