page one above was posted in 2009. Then there are about 200 photos with congrats, and nothing much about the car, so you may wish to skip to page 202 unless you want to waste time with people asking the same questions over and over, and lots of bickering about whether or not it's right to ask how much it was bought for, then traded for and then how much it's worth when restored.
which back in 2003 looked like this:
it's really no wonder it wasn't recognized as a 1938 VW
what was left of the original metal once all the decades of repairs had been removed:
around page 203 the body work photos get added to the thread, and you can appreciate the great work that was done to make it look new again
to page 226 was posted in 2015
and in between is a whole lot of reading I'm going to do before posting this so you can jump into reading it too if you'd like to
around page 33 they get the car to Germany, and then they got to acquiring parts.... an original pre-40 Chassis at ebay, a complete gearbox of the first serial and a complete chassis. An original engine cast in 1939 and most of the small stuff like handles, winders or switches
and there was so much demand for the thread, and all the info and photos, to be made into a book, that they did.
