Model information

Split Screen Bus


Thanks to Joe McCarthy for submitting photos of his stunning 1974 Brazilian Split Screen Bus. It’s running a 1500 engine and has been painted green and cream. If you are around Kerry you will no doubt see the Bus and and a very happy looking Joe behind the wheel and rightly so!

Thanks for submitting your Bus Joe. We really love how it’s turned out. 

UPDATE from Joe on his Bus 17-5-19: My bus was used for weddings in Brazil. His name who owned it was Fred Roodt. It had one owner and it was resprayed about 12 years ago. The chassis is in good condition as is the rest of the body. it did have a small crash on right side nothing too bad. Like any old VW there is a small bit of surface rust. I bought the roof rack in Brazil as well and I got it and my Bus shipped home by container to Dublin and then had a haulage company bring it down to Killarney for me.
