'63 11 window

Post by MID WEST DUBBER »

Hi everyone, picked up this splitty today, 3km from home. Unsure what year it is yet, haven’t been able to find VIN number as yet. Anyone got an idea what year it is? Solid around the roof and gutters. No running gear but good in the floor. This will be my project once the beetle is going.
Here is a picture as found…

Here is a couple of pictures when I got it home…

And one after a wash to get moss off

Cheers Rusty.

I have known about it for just over a year. Got a phone call sunday night asking if I wanted it, the obvious answer was yes. We rounded up a trailer, met them Monday morning and had it home before lunch.

In American pickers Lingo:

" I was all jacked up, I just had to pop".

thats a great score! nice parking in that shed too!!
you only need 2 things in life, duck tape and WD40, if it moves and shouldn't - use the duck tape, if it dosen't move and should - use the WD40.
