hey Guys I checked out a 46 that was sitting in a garage in Delaware that had 1940 ford ones on it. My understanding was that they were robbing parts off of wrecked cars and using them later Mark D

Hi,
here are some pics of the orginal taillights of my 1950 bus ( #2469).
They are complett diverent then the lights of the 1945 or early 1946 beetle.
Bye the way - when you look at the books you can see a picture from 1946 wich shows the 1000 after war build beetle - it has the same headlights.
Our car was deliverd to the britsh army and my friend Bjoern found it in the early 90 th by east Berlin - it was in very bad shape.
The other pictures show the different heating in the back and in front - this is the same as KDF beetle have.
Bye Christian

Yesterday my friend Marcel Tode was at my place and we desided to put the car finaly on it chassis - so we worked from 7.30 to 10.30 and the car was standing on its own tyres

Looks unreal. Almost like a plastic model. :D

Very cool looking car! 8)

Christian, You disapoint me now....NO PLAN ON THE WALL?
sorry, I could not resist it. But then again, this is a young and common beetle, like most of the splits.. :roll: .
You only need a plan with special body 's.

Like always a top job on both the body and drivetrain.

If you ever need a space to put a new car in....Call me. I come and pick it up. I will park it in my garage for free.... You know my favorit model. :lol:
Wish you all a merry christmas and happy new 38 year.

I would say walking into Christian's garage, for me anyway, would be like a 5 year old walking into Santa's workshop.

kafer53 Mon Dec 21, 2009 12:52 pm

Really nice looking car. Love the high stance with the kubel chassis.
Kind of reminds me of Hermann Walters garage with the maniquins and paraphanalia
