Heres some photos of the the Splitty that we used to own....and some pics of how much work that we did to get it up and running again!!!!

Needs a bit of work.....

Can you spot the differences...

Image

Image

We couldn't wait for it to be painted so first time out at the British VW festival, Malvern.

Image

Back in the garage for its new coat.........of paint

Image

Image

Starting to look really good now

Image

Image

Back home now with bumpers fitted

Image

On the Eurostar train heading for The Netherlands and the Venlo VW show

Image

Out and about...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Old and new....taken when VW re-released the beetle...

Image

So did you spot the differences...the pop top roof was replaced with a whole new roof panel, no leaking roofs to worry about, and not quite so easy to spot but the whole of the front panel has been replaced!!! Just a little bit of work...but worth it :D

Sold the van about 10 years ago for £4000, what would it be worth now :?

nice splitty.

I had a lovely 56 Splitty, got it a new Mexico engine, disc brakes all round, 12v conversion etc etc, money pit

Then got a 69 Type 3 Squareback, then a 69 Fastback. Squareback was my favourite, am gutted I had to sell it, oh well. I collect rare to rare-ish Cruisers now :-)

At a guess, 10 to 15 large.
