Do you have ANY pictures of the car at all?? That would do you the most good.

Did you try an ad in the paper or maybe an ad on Craig's list? pictures of it would help greatly to id it too.

Hope you find it!

since you don't know anything about it ,how will you be able to identify it if you find one ?clearly this is just as bad as the kooky lady looking for the guy named bill that had a yellow dunebuggy she once saw in 1974 .

If you did have a picture posted when you started this thread its disappeared. 1969 could have been either a Manx 1 or a Manx 2. Did it have a battery and spare tire well or a flat back seat? The thicker body sounds like a Manx 1.

Have you considered building a replica of your first one? There a $600 Manx 1 body in the Samba ads that would look great in new gold flake. If your Dad is still around, I'm sure he'd love to see a new one built, so would your kids if you have any.

I've always found that the easiest way to find something like a Manx or a vintage motorcycle is to get one and drive it around. People come up to you and tell you about the one their father or brother had/has.

I know it is a haul from PA, but consider coming to Oktobugfest in Monroe on November 9th. There will be more people in one place at that event who might know something about your car than anywhere else at any other time other than perhaps the Vintage Meet in July.

Join Cascade Kombis and/or PNW VW Club and start networking. You will either find your car or find out you can't find your car. Given the long post history on your thread, its clearly of long term interest to you, so give it some more time while you expand your local sources for info.

Not a lot of us on this forum from the PNW, given the climate here. My guess is that you are more likely to get positive results using the resources and methods suggested above.
