Oct 1952 Instuction manual Zwitter Price: $120 shipped in US
VW manual dated Oct 1952. I assume 1953 which would be a Zwitter. I originally thought this to be New Old Stock, however, this one says "REPRINTED BY VVWCA/SCHULER WITH PERMISSION OF VW/GERMANY" And therefore is a reprint. I obtained 2 of these when I purchased a collection ov VW books and manuals. I sold the first one and received this info from the purchaser
A little history on these copied manuals. The original manual was made in Oct/November of 1952. In December of 52 they changed the cover to the cover used on manuals years later.
So the originals are rare. So in the late 70s VWCA and Tom Schuler who was president of VWCA at that time asked VW germany permission to make 50 copies. Which they did. They are only copies and not to valuable except as a collector item to people like me who have a November 1952 zwitter. I already have a copy but it's not in the nice condition of yours.
That's why it says inside
REPRINTED BY VVWCA/SCHULER
