The Turkis coloured cars have some unusal stuff on them, like coloured running boards and wing beading IIRC. They look quite unusual when restored in this colour.

Hens tooth? Well, it´s a RHD sunroof car, but if you want to start splitting hairs about colour and so on then I should say its pretty unusual. Doesn´t mean its worth a fortune though. 1302s are rare!

Well it could well be and I can assure you if it is, it will be worth a lot more penny's restored with it's original sized rear window than with a Frankenstein Split implant! :lol:

Thats exactly what I meant - rare doesn´t necessarily equal valuable.
(I have heard several times that 1302s are now rarer than split Beetles)

From theSamba - some inspiration. Notice the coloured running boards, wing beading and rag top and green steering wheel, hand brake and shifter. All really distinctive.

Here's a RHD non sunroof car. Unfortunately and unbelievably this car was broken up earlier this year in order that the body could be made into a race car :shock: . It had little milage on it therefore was pretty solid!
