Steve B's was a 2.6 and now SilverBullet has it.  This one is an early 2.5 Microbus, prob hasn't got PAS.

The bumpers look in far better nick than mine. So does the bodywork, come to think of it!
That is an early one though. Seat fabric looks like German Multivan/Westy.
Nice.
Have I missed anything?

Last night I spoke to the SA guy who's just had his stolen. He too said it's a very early big window one.It must be somewhere in the region of 15-20 big window buses in the UK.Think we need a proper list/register without irrelevant posts ??

There's loads on SA gumtree as usual !  I even found a big 'window-less' panel van !!  Will compile some pics and make a thread asap.Wink

We could even start calling them 'Facelift model T3s'  or considering how much they've been redesigned and not just facelifted they could be T3b model ?? Big smile

If the engine & box are ok you'll love the drive, even without PAS. You'll see why this is the best petrol engine/power combination for the T3.They got it right,not really fast but an equivalent of what modern diesels feel like today.Wink

or T3c since we already have aircooled+round light, water cooled+square light models...

as an example: with Bays T2a are the round bumper models (pre68), T2b the square bumper, and T2c the brazilian watercooled versions with altered rooflines

Aw c'mon Charlie - even in ETKA it's listed seperately as T3ZA!
Under that banner you've got the early 2.5 k-jet and 2.0 carb(?), later on the 2.3i, 2.6i and 1.8 carb so now we've got T3ZA series 1 and 2 LOL
I think we should call it the 22S Uberclique and be done with it Wink

S'pose really it's down to metal body panel changes? not just bumper or grille mods etc.

Anything but Type 22S !!  & you know a certain magazine would still call one a type twenty five !!!!Wacko

I think you know me better than that! I meant for the SA forum... I can see a nice line of very "exclusiv" T-shirts (or is it "xclusive"?)
maybe "it's an Uitenhage thing" or "Fancy a bit of the old T3 plus?" Clockwerk Orange Free State etc. LOL
Happy to drive it every day Wink

I'll put you guys out of your misery. Iam the culprit and proud owner of one 1991 blue microbus which was on ebay for a short time. Had to move quick as if it hung arround on ebay would of gone for a fortune, so made an offer he couldnt refuse. Absolutely nackered, caught train and drove bus back last night from Nottingham. Been given a second chance since TIW 3013 gone driveabout. Thanks TransPorscher for the info.Smile
