The VW Transporter is one of the most iconic vehicles on the roads today. Introduced in 1967, and continuing in production until October 1979, the Bay was the successor to the legendary 'split-screen' Transporter, and is the second of five generations of van so far given the Transporter name by VW.
Even the poorest examples of the 'Bay' now fetch significant money, and imports from drier climes continue to appear on British roads, so the case for restoring one of these hugely popular vehicles is increasingly attractive.
Using the trusted Haynes practical step-by-step approach, this all-colour manual follows the restoration of a 1979 Devon camper from beginning to end, and provides expert advice on the problems likely to be encountered when working on vehicles that have seen over 35 years of use and, in Britain, as many years of rain, salt and mud. This is the only guide to restoring (or part-restoring) a 'Bay' you will ever need.
