Okay group, I found this:





The front of a VW Bus.  Still got its side mirrors.

Hi Michael, all

Now that one really is weird...

But I suppose if you need an enclosed cab for your tractor on rails, then I suppose "Needs must"...

A contraption like this would make Heath Robinson or Rube Goldberg proud.

I'll bet the driving seat is more comfortable in mid-winter than the seat it was originally fitted with. ;)

Just shows to go ya that anything is possible!

I bet that many of us have enough odds-n-ends in our parts boxes to slap something like this together.

Thank goodness it was just a clapped out old hippie bus they ruined for it

I wouldn't like to see a nice Cadillac treated that way

Although it would make for a way classier ride of course


:f:

However, you might be amazed at how much an old "hippie bus" all restored would fetch these days.
As P T Barnum (circus promoter) quoted-"there's a sucker born every minute!".
Wonder if this is classified as a "front engine" VW bus?

I've not the first clue what personality, but it does have one.

Well, unlike a normal VW bus, you will not be the first to arrive at your crash scene...
