Hi Sam,
Welcome to the forum. That looks like a nice oval you've found yourself there. I love the pic of the tax disc! 😎 I take it that it's been tucked away for quite a while? 😃

Thanks for the welcome, bought it from VW dealership where its been for a long while. Investigating history, will keep forum updated. A couple of questions, no carpet in it - what were they fitted out with when they rolled out the factory? Also, semaphores present but not working. Does anyone out there recondition?

Cheers, Sam

Great car.

Regarding the semaphores, if you don't mind sending them to Canada, Matt at matts parts does superior work!

It should have four black rubber floor matts with press studs which hold them in position.

Wow! What a beautiful car.
:D

Is it atlantic? or even jungle? green?
There is a '53 swedish oval down here being restored and I'm sure the inner wings are in the same original paint colour.
Unusual though.

Have you got any vw birth certificates for it? If not I will post up the address.
I wonder if I will ever get to see it, you are a long way away from the sunny south coast. Maybe you will drive it to Bad Camberg June '08?!

Oh, and welcome to stock heaven 😃

That would be a shame to drive that far and miss the show in Lavenham!
