Rare Restored Distributors;

VJU 4 BR 3 These three distributors were only in production for seven months during 1954. They have been mechanically restored but the cosmetics have been left as found as I judged them to be pretty good and is testiment to the fact that these have been run for only a few hours.

A) This is a "T" designated unit which means it originally came with a points dust cover. I have installed all NOS tune up parts including a large diameter condenser. The badge is rough but viewable. Original date correct working vacuum canister. It's still wearing it's original paint and is a low mileage unit. It has the sought after wire cap bails.The cap is good used German Bosch. $400. restored and shipped.
B) Date stamped June 1954 this original restored distributor comes with VW logo'd points NOS rotor, NOS German Bosch condenser. The cap is a new Wolfsburg West. The paint work is original. $350 shipped.

C) This is an example of a very low mirotor leage unit. The badge is excellent. The vacuum canister is the original and in good working order. It has NOS German Bosch points, rotor and condenser. The cap is a very lightly used German Bosch. The excellent paintwork is original it's even wearing its original red modification state marking under the badge. $450 shipped.

VJU 4 BR 8- Early Ones! the first two have the rare vacuum canister design and are still in good working order.

A) This ones unrestored, still has all of it's original factory installed parts. After running it on my sun Machine I decided to leave it alone, it's right in spec. Dated September 1954 the earliest possible stamping for a VJU 4 BR 8. It's still wearing its yellow paint mark modification state under the badge. $475 shipped

B) Same story with this one except that it is date stamped November 1954. This one has a blue modification state paint marking. $475 restored and shipped.
