Default Mercedes Bus - Lo3500

We all know, well at least some of us, what a surprising and possibly ill conceived, classic the Volkswagen Kombi has become. I guess it mirrors the image of freedom, versatility, adventure and could well be considered the forerunner of today's SUVs. So take this bus - what is it worth ? It has the side panorama windows, it has the breeding and heritage and it has the nostalgia appeal. I well remember riding in one of these back in 1956 - up a short mountain range, the bus full of passengers and once the driver got a hundred meters up the steeper stretch, it was 3rd back to second with the appropriate double shuffle and then from 2nd to.....an almost full stop...into first, and going up the rest of the hill at two kilometres an hour. It was agonizing. Regards Styria

Very much like the Bedford J2 Bus that keir's of Canberra had for cheap school hire it was a 33 seater. Top speed was 80Kmh any hill down the gears quickly. I drove it in 88 when required.
