1-063289 (KLL 216) certainly does still exist!!

After all this time it is being restored, the plan is to have it ready for Hessisch next June, well that's the dream anyway.

The history of our ownership and the restoration is being serialised in the Historic Volkswagen Club magazine starting earlier this year and hopefully running until the trip to Hessisch has taken place.
