Brazil Split Screens


“The Split – Brazilia”

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.

Bespoke Kombivans. Built for you.
