Wayne's 1972 VW Dual-Cab
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Wayne Murray previously, photographing his multi-award-winning, immaculately restored 1972 VW Kombi that was featured in VWMA way back when. This is his latest incredible resto – another self build – that appeared in issue 71 of VWMA (Aug-Oct 2021).
It’s a rare beast, falling into a ‘transitional’ period of production that saw the company spit out models that used certain parts only for that year – making restoration particularly difficult if you’re like Wayne and prefer things to be just as they should be. Overall, Wayne spent years scouring the world for the parts he needed or having new parts manufactured in countries as far flung as Turkey and the Netherlands. I reckon the result was worth the effort.
My photos can only tell so much of the story and I haven’t written it all here either. Do yourself a favour and find a copy of VWMA and read all about it!
