SO22 / SO33

This page details the so22/33 conversion done by Westfalia during the years of 62-65

More to come!

This kit was offered in 2 forms- The so22 which was meant to be outfitted to the 7/9 seater or Kombi, and the so33 kit which was more of a permanent install with a subhatch, typically seen outfitted to Kombi models. Many people refer to any kit similar to this as "Mosaik". That term was only used by VW to refer to the so22 kit since it was meant to be outfitted to a normal passenger model bus, and removed just the same.
