Classic VW Kombi restored to its former glory
When Rachel and Josh bought a beat-up old Volkswagen Kombi van, they never imagined how restoring the vehicle would enrich their lives so much.
Driving down the Great Ocean Road in south-west Victoria, VW Kombi owners Rachel and Josh, and their son Jett, are greeted by waves from other vehicles, smiles through car windows and the occasional tooted horn or thumbs up.
This is common for the pair who fell in love with the iconic model and snapped up a 1969 Bay Window VW Kombi in 2019 with the purpose of restoring it to its former glory.
“When we first saw her in the driveway, I thought ‘I think she’s going to be the one’,” says Josh.
Indy, as the VW Kombi is affectionately named, has been a real labour of love.
