Another Filipino Country Buggy...


Hi there...

Im Roberto, a 17 yr. old guy who's fascinated with volkswagens... I got this passion for vintage volkswagens maybe from my father... I'm glad i found a site like this that is tackling more about Country Buggies... Because i myself has many ??? (questions) about the said, rarest Volkswagen... I'm also a proud owner of a Country Buggy (I believe it is a Country Buggy despite that i'm not able to locate the KO number)... Im looking into 2 factors why i can't locate the KO number... 1st factor, maybe the place where the KO number could be found was already repaired by the previous owner or 2nd, maybe my country buggy doesn't really had a KO number at all (because Mr. Bill Moore said that CB's that were exported here in the Philippines doesn't have KO #)...

My CB is under restoration... But this picture that i will attached was captured when the restoration was not yet started... (im sorry for a low resolution picture)

Roberto,
Welcome to the CB Forum! This is a great place to find out about CBs and what other guys are doing with their vehicles.
Graham's picture Gallery of CBs is a great resource too. Check it out.

I think the explanation given you by Bill Moore is the correct reason. But whether it's a KO'd CB or a Sakbayan, to me its pretty much the same.

Why don't you record a pictorial history of the progress of your restoration and keep us informed here at the CB Forum? I'm sure others would very much like to keep attuned to your progress and see what the end result is.

Regards,
Steve

It's nice here that you're at Philippines sir... Maybe i could invite you to attend to the Philippines' Annual Volkswagen Carshow this coming December 6 2009... Maybe there you could enjoy the view of Volkswagens gathering only in one place... For more details 'bout the said event, you could visit Volkswagen Club of the Philippines website, http://www.vwcp.org

Roberto

With all the work this car needed, you have truly saved it. Many people would have given up on it and let it go to waste.

Congratulations to you for an excellent job and keeping this alive for the rest of us to see and gather inspiration from.

Picture DSC07925 is interesting. The stub axle assembly is installed upside down. I'll have to think about that. Definitely give it a radical lowered effect. Was that the idea Roberto?

Sir VWCool and sir Yogie, thanks for your very nice and heart-warming comments...

Sir Graham, whoa!!! thank you very much... It is such an honor for me that my buggy would included in your gallery... Thank you...

Sir Tony, what a??? your right, the stub axle was installed upside down!!! No sir, it's not the idea... Just a simple mistake made by me myself and my father who re-assembled the front end... Thanks to your great observation... Maybe this is the opportunity to ask what should be done to correct the mistake that we've committed...

Roberto
Looks like youíve simply put the left hand stub on the right hand side etc. Take the link pins out and swap the stub assemblies side to side and itíll all be good. Thereís some pictures at:-http://forums.aussieveedubbers.com/viewtopic.php?tid=74138

For anyone thinking of using that trick to radically lower something, it wonít work straight away. There are no thrust washer in the king pin to take the load in that direction, even if you could get the steering arm to reach. All youíll get is bad wear and possibly a seizure. I guess the ling pin could be modified to get at least 1 thrust washer in there. Might be better to turn a Kombi stub upside down so the pitman arm is on the top again? Thereís plenty of other ways to lower a front end anyway.
Cheers
Tony

Roberto, et al,
I am absolutely thrilled with your post concerning your pics.
It has awakened the forum I know is out there.......just not as responsive as some of us would wish for.
I think you have finally engaged the gears here at the CB Forum, and I encourage you to continue in this fashion.
Tony's observations about the stub axle assembly is an superb example of what is possible here when posters engage the masses with relevant and exciting new information and include pics and potential mechanical problems.
What a breath of fresh air.
Amen.
:tu:

Regards,
Steve

Sir Graham, yes i know some other Country Buggies/Sakbayans here in our country... I actually have some of their pictures... It's just that i'm not that "close" to the owners of those precious metals... The red Sakbayan in your gallery belongs to Mr. Sam Baldado, the former President of the Volkswagen Club of Philippines... While the lowered beige sakbayan belongs to Mr. Tox Joel of V.W.C.P. Pampanga Chapter... Maybe on some other day i could post my own collections of photos of CB/Sakbayan here in our country...

Sir Tony, now i know... Thanks for the info... Maybe when we're already in the process of assembling car, we could correct our mistake...

Sir Steve, I'm very greatful for what you've said... I hope this thread would continue to inspire some other people who's in the process of restoring their rides...

Sir John, thank you for the applause...

Regards,
Roberto

Bert,
Good to have you on board the Forum together with all the serious work you are putting into your CB.
You wont find a KO number on your vehicle as it looks to be one of the LHD units exported to the Philippines and then assemble over there. The front steps set into the side sills suggests to me that it was local assembly there and not here in Australia.
There is certainly some work there but it looks to be proceeding really well.
Using the Forum is a great way to gain advice and assistance and with Graham collecting all the photos it goes along way to helping each other get through the restorations.
Keep up the great work.
countrybuggybill.

Sir Bill, i can't imagine that now, i could communicate with you sir... before i'm just reading your history 'bout CB's but know, i could really communicate with you (even via internet only), a dream-come-true for me!!! Now it is clear to me that my CB was assembled here in our country, not there in Australia... And I also knew that the steps on the side sills is one of the indications that a CB was assembled here in the Philipines... Thank you sir Bill!!!

Regards,
Roberto

Updated pictures of my CB, body works on the rear part, almost DONE!!!

Hi everyone!

It's been 9 years since the last post i made in this forum. The country buggy is still with me, but didn't have the chance of finishing the restoration (because of other bugs got its way). :lol:

I would still want to make this thing run, at least. I'm planning to fix the mechanical stuffs, or get a rolling chassis from another bug and leave the body as is. Will a late chassis (came from a 68 or later bug) being mated to the country buggy shell be a bolt on process?

I believe this forum is still the best place to ask about ACB's and i'm looking forward of hearing from you, mates! Happy new year!

Best regards,
Robert

Been searching and browsing Facebook about Bill Moore. I'm totally saddened to know he passed away March 2014, almost 4 years ago. :(

Hi Robert
Good to have you back. Young Bill is still sorely missed around here.
The late chassis will bolt on with a bit of a touch up of the shock tower mounting point. I'm sure you can handle that. Keep us informed.
Cheers Tony

We love pics of CBs here at the CB forum.
