“The Split – Deutsch”
From the humblest of beginnings, no one could have guessed back in November 1949 at the Geneva Motor Show, that this split-screen VW Type II bus would become the iconic vehicle that is it today. In its 18 years of production, 5 million split-screen vehicles were made, its design hardly changing until 1968.
Custom Built for you
The fundemental basics of any Restoration are good foundations.
The Option One range benefits from the comprehensive beginnings here at Wize Volkswagen, and that commences with an entire shell strip down, leaving nothing in place. What follows is our 2018 introduced Three Stage Dipping process.
A process of Heat treating the shell by way of 'flash' burning all the materials. Followed by a long soak in the Phosphoric solutions, before entering into the rust prevention stages.
The Option One builds then enter in their 360 degree rotisserie process. We leave nothing unchecked, addressed, or repaired. They have fundemental beginnings, for their fundemental longevtivity.

Searching the globe, we will locate a kombi van ripe for restoration that fits your wants and needs. In many cases, these kombi vans are imported from America, but can also be sourced from Australia or South Africa. We are constantly battling with a diminishing supply of these iconic machines.
Once in our workshop, they receive the care and attention they need to bring them back to life.
Back to 'basics'
Building from the ground up, we need to ensure that everything is as it should be, hence, every aspect is examined. The processes of Phospohric Dipping and etch priming (creating an adhesive layer, ready for the re-spray) will reveal any problems or issues that need resolving. All our Option One builds are Bare Metal Dipped. Nothing is left unturned.

Fabricating & Panel Beating
Two of the most fundamental stages of all our builds, and one we do not rush. German company Wurth supply all our products within a ‘system’. All are tested and Globally recognised. Our Skilled workforce are utilised only in the areas in which they are trained. These processes instil the finished longevtivity of all our Kombis.
For many customers, this is the most exciting part (other than taking delivery!). The aspect of any kombi van created for you is encapsulated in its colours. There are very few, if any, limitations to the colours you can opt for; some customers give a nod to this iconic vehicles past, choosing the well-known and liked pastel shades but others give their Type I restored kombi van a new lease of life with bright, fun colour combinations.
All our Option Builds carry Warranty backed workmanship. A lifetime Warranty on Paint! Something not heard of in our industry.
Underside colour coding as standard.
The final step is to create the interior, again to your wants and needs. With two ranges to choose from, you can opt for the deep, rich colours from the Zander range, from the brooding dark ‘Forest’ green to the elegant grey of ‘Arctic Sky. Or, if you want bright, fresh colours, take a peek at the Valencia range, from the zing of bright ‘Apfel’ green to the effervescence of bright ‘Berry’ pink. Our in-house upholstery specialists, make every seat cover and every inch of the soft furnishings; likewise, our cabinetry team create the interior seating, cupboards and the like to exactly how you want it. All hand made, all by us.
The process is nearly at an end with the most important inner mechanical workings of your kombi van having the full mechanical ‘treatment’. In other words, with the comprehensive Option 1 package, mechanical parts are all virtually replaced.
And there we have it… YOUR kombi van, designed, created and built for you.
