jail bar 241 853 457A variant or modification? mystery
bobstephen
I took these from a junkyard in the early '80s, not sure what year bus. There were 3 on the back of the rear seat just like most jail bar uprights, but I could only remove 2. They look like they were shortened just above a point of narrowing, compared to a normal jail bar that has no narrowing. The VW & Frivo logos and the part number look to have been ground almost smooth on the backs of both but are legible with a magnifying glass. The finish looks like factory to my inexpert eyes. I can only guess at explanations.

T1 1956 VW Transporter in Hong Kong
Charles in Shanghai
Charles Gesner van der Voort had started his career in Rotterdam, at Holland-China Trading Company (HCHC). In 1938, he went to Shanghai for the firm. The Japanese interned him, and most other Dutch nationals, from 1943-45. In camp, he met his wife Nancy and they married after the war. After a leave in The Netherlands, they returned to the Orient, where Charles continued to work for HCHC in Hong Kong.

This photo was found in the company archives, held by Stadsarchief Rotterdam. A Volkswagen Transporter, type 1, was used to transport goods from the harbour to a warehouse and to clients. Several products were advertised on the van: Pammastic paints, Mitchell, and Liebherr refrigerators.

HCHC had its offices in Alexandra Building.

Negatives developed and printed by Salon Photo Supply, 1 Yun Ping Road, Hong Kong.

The Stadarchief Rotterdam archives have the original print as well as the negative. It is interesting to see the differences: better lighting and details on the original print, what was cropped off the original print (notice the unusual facial expression of the the man in the right under corner). The Chinese text may help narrowing down the date of this photo. Any suggestions?

If you zoom in really close, you can see details like the company name of the Rolex reseller: Fung Leung Kee Watch Company. They still exist today: ""Fung Leung Kee Watch Company" was established since 1943, and has been operating for over 60 years. Located in a self-owned property at 157 Johnston Road, Central Wanchai, the company is a member of the Federation of Hong Kong Watch Trades & Industries Ltd.
"Fung Leung Kee Watch Company" is the agent of various global and famous brand watches including Rolex, Tudor, Rado, Longines, Tissot, Gucci, Oris and Seiko which are welcomed for your precious selection."

Wanted to do something a little different, so here's the progress we have so far.
It's a super beetle body and a shortened Chevy truck frame, with a hefty Chevy 427. We decided to use a Ford 8.8 that we will narrow, and setup a tri4-link. Sounds like a good project.

The corner is too narrow by about 3/8th of an inch. You have to cut and make this square. Otherwise the pan won't seat close enough to the tunnel lip.

While the grille fit pretty decent considering, the body had to be narrowed about 3/4 of an inch and the front of the car body cut back about 4 inches. I also cut relief cuts into the floor section in the nose so the body could be narrowed

I literally cut the nose off of the whole front body section. I reinstalled the front hood drip moldings. I used a long threaded rod to pull the two body sides narrower and then glassed the nose cap back in 4 inches farther back.

The original Mercedes grille actually worked perfectly by sitting it over the lip of the original from hood drip rail.

While the grille fit pretty decent considering, the body had to be narrowed about 3/4 of an inch and the front of the car body cut back about 4 inches. I also cut relief cuts into the floor section in the nose so the body could be narrowed

I literally cut the nose off of the whole front body section. I reinstalled the front hood drip moldings. I used a long threaded rod to pull the two body sides narrower and then glassed the nose cap back in 4 inches farther back.

The original Mercedes grille actually worked perfectly by sitting it over the lip of the original from hood drip rail.

Hughie Hogg's Beetle in "Dukes of Hazzard"
Rome
Season 3, episode 7. Boss Hogg's nephew Hughie drives a white Beetle with small steer horns on the hood. Appears to be a '71 Standard Beetle sedan with the roof cut off, B pillars and windshield header covered over. Here he's avoiding the General Lee Dodge Charger, Enos in the white Dodge police cruiser trapped in a narrow culvert pipe which the Beetle just passed through, and Uncle Jesse in the pickup. Here's a short video of the car chase-
