I recently replaced my rear tailgate with a Caravelle heated window with "jailbars."
If anyone wants just the original rear plain glass for free let me know as otherwise its off to the tip.
Cheers

PS I've moved from "interested" to "almost certain" for the trip to Cape York in May. Any developments? I'm trying out crocodile repellent on the hubcaps. It seems to be very effective here in Melbourne

Dear Mark,
 I suspect  that you are using a nom de plume to get jail bars to fit round the top of Max's cot so that he is subtely imbuded with the" only true religion".
I got mine from Volkspower (03) 9808 6777 email parts@volkspower.com.au a Burwood Victoria aftermarket service and spares VW enthusiast.I'm sure they would freight if they have them-very light but prone to bending.Mine were somewhat oxidized but came up beautifully with fine steel wool and brasso.
Croc repellent generally seems amazingly effective in my suburb although I thought I saw an old croc whilst shaving this morning.
Cheers
Roger

All,
 
If any member contacts Volkspower for parts, please tell them that you are members of the Syncro group run  by Les Harris.  I was a long-time friend of the late founder of Volkspower, Barry Coutts, and of his son, Dean, who now owns and runs the place.

If he doesn't have to have originals, Just Kampers in the UK make a very close copy. The tubes are slightly larger in diameter and the center support lower mounting plate is slightly different (heartshaped llike T2's intead of squarish in the T3's). However for £39.50  (inc. vat), it does not seem such a bad deal. Here in the US Bus Depot sells them for about US$55.

I have received details of a Syncro for sale from a non-member.

 

Name: Tim Williams

Address: 305/3 Gladstone Street ,

Newtown,

NSW, 2042,

Australia

Mobile: 0412401191

Email: tim@twarch.com.au

 

 

My Syncro is a 1989 Caravelle with 7 super comfortable seats.
I have had it for about 6 years and I am the second owner.

My kids are growing up and I only use it once or twice a year for holidays.
I love it but can’t justify keeping it.

It has done 230,000 km and runs beautifully

It has rego to June 2010

I have replaced Slave Master cylinder at Muller and Muller and had extra grab rails installed at wife’s request (also from Muller)
It has also had new alternator and rear shocks.

Cibies installed on original rack (Great driving lights)

It is Gold in
colour with beige/ brown trim
The interior is in excellent condition but I do not have any pics of that yet.

Not sure what to ask for it
Any suggestions?
It has a ding in the FRH door and rear bumper
Touches of surface rust here and there.

 

I told him that, since this is a non-commercial group, I could not suggest a price.

Heh Mark K ... better snap this one up pretty damn quick .... a Caravelle! Room in the stable surely?
Ideal for a future family of .....  ummm   .... say 8.  Haha
 
Cheers.
