VWSA paint & upholstery codes - 1972

Post by Eugene » Wed Sep 27, 2017 2:52 pm

So guys with reference to viewtopic.php?f=1&t=36641, please post pics of your original SA VW painted vehicles, of the year 1972. Please try to get pictures taken when overcast or out of direct sunlight. When viewing your picture on your computer or mobile device, ensure the color accurately represents the actual color of your car. We have seen many reds that look pink and vice versa. Same goes for interior, so nice picture of door panels and seats.

Here is an example of my Bastard 72 model.

Model: 1972 Microbus
Paint Code: 07 (Aquamarine)
Interior: Light brown seats with light grey door panels. It seems in 72, light grey door panels was the only option for the panels in the Microbus.

This also seems to be something unique to the 72 models. It is these rear mounted roof grab handles. I'm sure i've only seen them on 72 models.

Eugene, has your bus been resprayed, and if so, is it 2K, did you have it mixed from an original body sample or from a colour code?
