this is a how long is a bit of string type question but what would the min value be for a complete and pretty original spec 1951 standard bug, it has got Deluxe fluted trim fitted probably when it was inported into the UK, but still features its plain three spoke wheel and has a blanked panel next to the speedo, in the past I have been told the engine by number is a factory exchange engine from 1946, the engine is free, and from fifteen feet the car looks like a dusty old split but it needs all the rust normal rust repair and then some but has not been got at in the past which is a good thing, but this car is rusty...

As well as the cost of old VWs getting pretty high, the cost of some original parts is just mind blowing at times. :cry:

My coachbuilt Ascort used a lot of parts from other makes and also accessory bits from the late 1950s. I am collecting parts for use in my restoration and these are some of the things I am finding:


Steering lock - Up to $400 :shock:



... and then there is the Okrasa TSV 1300 engine. Genuine parts can cost a small fortune. At least Wolfsburg West, Joe Okrasa and others have replica parts. :roll: but original would be nicer.
