As a newbie here I thought I'd post up a few shots of my 53 Ragtop.
As you can see there are a few bits that are wrong for the year - it's a bit of a survivor car, imported from east Germany in 91'
I think people have just done what they can to keep it on the road over the years.
It has the later big window model doors and front wings, 55-60 tail lights and those weird "elephant ear" indicators. One interesting point is that it also came with what I think is a pre 49' decklid - has a pressing for the numberplate - but has a later pope's nose tacked on.
I'm slowly amassing the correct parts that I need for an eventual resto!
Here are a couple of pics taken last week after the car came out for the first time in 2 years for a bit of a service and a clean up. The car passed its MOT and is now back on the road.
