#1 Post by sierramicros » 7 years ago

Hello everyone, my name is Mike Turner I live beautiful South Lake Tahoe, CA. I was looking for a project and came upon a white 1969 Subaru 360 van. The van came with some extra body parts and a seized engine. The van is in good condition and needs love like any project. About a month following, I was looking for parts, and came upon another 360 van. This van is customized and complete. I plan on restoring the white one to stock and updating the paint and interior to the customized van. http://i807.photobucket.com/albums/yy35 ... 53ebe2.jpg http://i807.photobucket.com/albums/yy35 ... 9a2ca0.jpg

Mike - Welcome to The Club!

have about the history, repair, and maintenance

Mike:

Welcome to the club! Good looking van. I feel it is my place to tell you however that every new club member who comes on board with two vans must sell one of them to an existing club member without one who lives two states to the north. Since I just happen to live in Washington I would be happy to drive down and pick it up from you. Just let me know when it will be convenient.

Mike:

Carl got it partly right when he gave you that advice; here's what he was actually trying to say: club policy requires that whenever a newby (that's you) joins the club with more than one 360, he is obligated to share with the club members who don't yet have enough 360s to fill their needs. Furthermore, in order to maintain and minimize rust on the vehicle, it is also club policy that the vehicle you release should go to a 360 enthusiast who lives in a mild climate (like Southern California.) Coincidentally, I happen to need a van and I live in a very mild climate. I'm sure you will do the right thing and meet with the Subaru 360 Club's policies. How soon should I expect arrival?

Sincerely,

Roger Ward

P.S. Welcome to the club! We will try to be helpful as you build your remaining van.

That van used to belong to Mort Smith. Don Harper customized it in the 80's. It used to sport scooter front tires an expansion chamber, reed valves of some type.

The prior posts are NOT quite correct!! The West & East coast are OVER saturated with 360's, while the heartland "Norman Okla" has a shortage of 360's causing recent earth quakes nearby due to the in- balance! Help Chpfxr & Oldone out. Hey! Did you feel tha.....

Welcome to the club Mike!!!
I could go on & on about how we don't have enough 360's in my part of the world, but it looks like you have heard all the excuses before, so I just want you know that you won't find a better place to find all the help your going to need to keep your vans smokin' than right here on this site :D :D
