This comprehensive guide is the first one to tell the whole story of the Volkswagen Bay-Window Transporter, produced from 1967 to 1979. It deals with the Transporter's development, its technical evolution, the model codes, the specification detail changes, the factory fitted M-codes and Transporter export. Using this book, Bus enthusiasts can crack the codes of their own specific vehicle, to find out the factory-fitted specifications like paint and trim colours, engine and transmission types and even, the date of manufacture, model and destination code.

I returned it.
The author has done a tremendous research on the Bay, and it is quite impressive. Interesting chapter on Transportes at work, special models for fire and ambulance duty. There are also useful pictures to show differences and improvements made during the models lifespan.
The only thing I wish for, is that the chapter on exterior paintwork could have had some pictures to show what some of the color names actually look like.
This is a top book, I give it my highest recommandation!
It is a must have for anyone researching/restoring Bay Window buses. I cannot express how much information is in this book. Well written with plenty of pictures! I've spent months searching google for answers and found that information is sparse and scattered over multiple sites! Now I have all the answers at the flip of a page!
