You are overlooking the fact that those shells are missing their quarter windows. The quarter panel is a one piece stamping. There is also an inner stamping but the outer part is one piece.



Chris, please don't feed the troll. Laughing



Show me quarter windows on a split. Wink ( Zwitter wind wings don't count)

Actually, I first saw that picture on a small lap-top.

These were given to me by a co-worker. It's a family friend picking up a brand new '56 cabrio at the factory. Sorry it's Oval-era.

Somewhere in France.

Sorry for the bad quality...

The first picture came from a book about my hometown. The rest of the pictures come form a book called "De VW in Nederland" (The VW in the Netherlands). It's a really great book with nice pictures, ISBN 90389 03235 / CIP. But it is in Dutch....
