Our right hand drive deluxe, originally imported from Cyprus in 1962-ish, was bought by us in 2005. Although fitted with a new 1600, it came with it's original complete and, working perfectly, matching number engine and gearbox. As a precaution we will eventually be giving this a strip down and good check over and refitting it back in the car. We are currently in the process of undertaking some minor cosmetic work to keep it driving along nicely for now, but eventually would like to restore it back to its original Jungle Green colour. From these pictures you may be able to see that we still needed to finish putting the trim back on the bonnet. This is now done! We are also collecting further NOS parts ready for when we get time to do what we want to do. But for now we just mainly want to drive use it and enjoy it. Now also fitted with Big Logo VW hubcaps originally used up until 1949.
NOS Scripted Bosch Yellow Spotlight. Designed for VW Krankenwagen. It's always a hard decision to use a lovely NOS boxed item but we think it looks super cool.
