Hi Guys,

For 2 months I'm the lucky owner of a barndoor '54. I bought the car from someone in California, and I'm expecting the bus to arrive in the beginning of November. I live in the netherlands.

I immediately paid for a "stiftung Automuseum Volkswagen"certificate (birth certificate) and I received it today!

As you can imagine i'm trying to find as much as informations and/or old photo's of this car. On the birth certificate states that the bus first is shipped to Volkwagen dealer Gloeckler (Glöckler), Frankfurt - Germany

I'm trying to find some information about this dealer so I can contact them. Maybe they have some information left.

Is there anyone who knows more about this dealer? If I google I find some info about a "walter" or "otto" who made racecars built on porsches designs, but I don't know if this was the same VW dealer. I can also find nothing more about them.

hope to hear from someone!

I also have e '57 PGSG and waited for 7 months for a birth certificate. When I ordered a second birth certificate 4/5 weeks ago for the barndoor, I mailed how long it would take to get the certificate for the '57 PGSG. they mailed me back they would ship both certificates in October.
