Surf Seeker Custom VW Kombi Bus


With heavily curved features and bendy, trippy body lines this 1965 custom VW bus defies your expectations of what a car, even a VW bus which have always been associated with hippies and surfing, should look like.The custom VW Bus took 17 months to design and build with Berry customizing a 1965 Kombi. Berry changed the suspension on the custom VW Bus, dropped in a new 209hp engine, 24-inch chrome wheels, redone the interior, and gave it a sculptural aesthetic.

I remember the first time I laid eyes on Ron Berry’s Custom VW Kombi Bus in real life.2017 SEMA.I had seen it on the internet several times and it was love at first sight.I mean I knew there was nothing I wouldn’t do to shoot this crazy custom VW Kombi Bus if I ever had the chance..So there it was at SEMA 2017.

I had made arrangements with a person in the booth.It was all set.Then when I came back.It was covered up!.Time ran out.They apologized.But I was so disappointed.So turn the clock ahead to 2018 NSRA Street Rod Nationals and there it is again.Still every bit as cool as ever.


So I shot what I could.When I had the chance.I wish I could have got better footage.But it was in a small display that was set up like a beach.Not the best for shooting a video.But I got it.Finally.This VW Bus is as cool as it gets.The fabrication work is incredible and when you look at it.Impossible.It has a cartoon kinda of affect to it.Like a life size Hot Wheels.Way cool for sure.I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
