@ Romano and Storm:
I really, really need to get my hands on as many decent, hopefully German/NOS/quality pre 67 parts as possible. Fact of the matter is I'm completely stuffed for parts for the '61 and its an irritating feeling not being able to start her resto because I don't feel confident enough to strip her down and start the body.
Last thing I want is for the car to be all painted up and then waiting for months for bits and bobs. Kabaris have dried up here and new parts are either nonexistent or extortionately pricey.
Ahhh...your car evokes (slight) memories of my own '66 sunroof LHD. What a car it was, thankfully mine looked every inch a '66. Rare as it may be, it's a real darn shame about that '74 body and all those mods. With all due respect, unless some brave soul takes this is on as a full-on resto, the car is a gonner.
I wonder what on Earth possess people to do this to early cars, particularly sunroofs. Funny how out in the West, it's more usual for people to take newer model VWs and make them look older.
