This beautiful 1972 T1 Bulli was purchased at the end of 2019 and we did a full visual and technical inspection. We then made some technical improvements and delivered the Bulli to Frankfurt where we did the TÜV and H-registration clearance and delivered the vehicle to our client.

Before Arrival in the Garage
This bus was partially restored before it came to our workshop. It has a very nice color combination and a great looking interior.
After the bus arrived in our workshop, we carried out a visual and mechanical inspection and took it for a test drive. After the tests we discovered the following problems.
- Incorrectly installed front doors
- Wrong rims
- Transparent fuel hose
- Battery not attached properly
- Various hoses and cables not fixed properly
- Wheel bolt missing
- Not enough pressure in the brake system
Front Door Corrections
After the technical inspection we started to realign the front doors so that they closed properly. In this case, we inserted new bushings in the door hinges and re-welded the hinges so that they were properly fixed. We then applied a rust protection solution and repainted the damaged areas.
Technically speaking, we changed the rims, installed a fifth screw in the wheel hub, changed the fuel hose and also laid some new cables and hoses under the bus in order to ensure an easy German registration.
TÜV in Germany
When the bus arrived in Germany, our partners took care of all the technical and bureaucratic steps. They prepared the “Datenbaltt” for the Bus, then the tires and the headlights were changes and they installed a small electric heater and also some warning lights, so that the bus was prepared according to the German road traffic regulations.
VW Bus Home Delivery
After the bus received TÜV and H-Zulassung, we delivered it directly to the customer’s home so that he can enjoy his new toy!
