SSVC Van of The Year 2008

January 2008

This month's winner is Sav with his fantastic 54 Barndoor Microbus....

My Name is Martin Savine But EVERYONE calls me SAV.

As far as the bus goes it's a 1954 Swedish microbus, originally used as a bakers van for a company called "Norlinsbageri" in Alvdalen Sweden.

It was later used as a woodshed and finally recovered in 2000 and returned to a usable bus.

It has a 1500 engine, straight axeled at the rear, front beam has had adjusters fitted and dropped spindles, a dual circuit brake system has been fitted for obvious reasons, and as you can see it still rolls on it's 16" rims with Firestone whitewall crossplys.

*UPDATE* Featured in the May issue of Volksworld Camper & Bus magazine!

It's former home in Sweden with Lars Hasa, the former owner and the guy responsible for bringing this Barndoor back from the dead.
