This 1965 Kombi pickup truck was orig­i­nally owned by HC Kitchen Ltd builders-sup­ply mer­chants in Cook Street, Auck­land, for seven years.

The next owner was a builder, who looked af­ter it for 19 years be­fore hand­ing it over to the third owner, who used it as a daily-driver for about nine years. The cur­rent (fourth) owner has taken care of it for the past 15 years and re­cently de­cided to carry out some re­me­dial rust work around the front apron.

It was soon re­al­ized that un­der the nice paint there was ex­ten­sive patch­ing and filler just wait­ing to break out, so it was sent to VW spe­cial­ist the V-dub Shoppe, just out of Hamil­ton, for to­tal restora­tion.

The restora­tion was car­ried out to the orig­i­nal stock-stan­dard specs, and the pickup looks re­splen­dent in its orig­i­nal Ruby Red colour.
