I paid $900 for a good condition running driving '67 21 window in 1980. It's one of those "boy I wish I still had that car." VWs were the gateway drug to 914's for me (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smoke.gif)

With buyer premium, that's well over $300k for that bus.

Kind of like the early 911 market...sky high and never coming back.

You can buy pretty much every piece of sheet metal for those. As mentioned before, it doesn't have to have much left of it to totally restore one.

Yep, from Gersen in Bogota, Columbia. Good quality stuff. They even make gates for single/double cabs, early pressed bumpers and the '58 only bus decklid. Not inexpensive though.

Yes! Green metal they call it... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)...makes sense I guess. There was a resto on youtube recently where the builder spent ~$12k on green metal. Replaced a LOT of the underbelly and some outer skin but not all.

Wolfsburg West in California has replacement sheet metal for these buses, and looks to be less expensive then the place in Columbia even without shipping cost. I replaced the cargo floor and a few other pieces on a 1959 23-window bus last year and the parts seemed reasonable to me, compared to those on a 914. Body and paint was a 6 month project for me and I can't say I'd want to do another one. Getting those big side panels perfectly straight is a lot of work.
