Sold to the highest bidder!











I just sold my last complete set of spare genuine M265 Type 3 Panel Van window panels to another dedicated early Type 3 guru.

These were removed as 2 x pairs from 2 x seperate panel van's over the years that I found and I hope they find their new home soon, spot welded into another early squareback.

I also supplied the new owner with genuine Australian only long and short hinges for the cargo area and some of the luggage protector strips so he is on the right track with an accurate replica now.

You wont see these panels turn up very often it has to be said, and no I don't have any more.
The only spares I have now are 1 x long hinge and 4 x short luggage protector strips. If you need these, send me an email and we will do a deal.

Goodies at Bob's house, June 2010









NOS pair of push button assemblies. Nice work Bob.

It's a good thing that all 3 of my 1500's use the later model push / pull type switches or I would be mighty tempted to make you an offer on one of those.

Some of the 1500's at Bob's house June 2010
















Just a quick tease of some of the cars that showed up at Bob's house, on the Thursday just before the VW Classic in California this year (2010).

Welcome to the 1500 Notchback blog


My first post on this blog.

The plan is to keep you across the restoration of my 1964 1500 'S' Notchback and to also tell you about the things going on in my VW world, here in Adelaide, South Australia.

Make this a favorite in your VW's folder and check back often. As this is new to me, it's going to take a little while to determine how I will do this but rest assured there will be plenty of material coming up and you will enjoy.

Thanks.
