Hi everyone,

After one year with my SA Caravelle, it's time to post some photos here. 

Only discover this forum after post some photos at VW Transporter T3 South African Microbus Exclusive Kombi 1991 - 2002 on facebook, and get in touch with Gunther who show me this forum.

This van was imported from SA to Portugal in 1998 and believe that was one of the only two imported.

Unfortunately, since 1998 she lived at the street in a city with a lot of humidity, so, a few spots with serious rust holes. few years ago, the last owner tried to convert to LPG but cancel the conversion and remove the components. 

Another problem that I found, there is no VIN number marked at the chassis...

Despite all theese problems, the interior is in very good condition Big smile The odometer shows +-52 000 km

Last weekend, she let me down.Ouch I believe that was the fuel pump, must be confirmed...
After that, I'll start to substitute the rust panels and a new exhaust line

So, the most important, let show a few pictures of the beast!!

1st day
