Scored a vintage Foreign car magazine and came across an interesting article on the Binz and double cabs.
Only 120 Binz sold in 1958!

Is it Foreign car guide?
Let us know which issue.

It looks like it's a general article about VW sales but I have collected most of them over many years and can at least scan the Binz image if anyone wants a huge scan of it

Got it - I added it to the Bus Press Photos page on the site

Direct link to the 600dpi JPG scan I did
I also saved it in TIFF format, which is larger but may be better if you are tying to blow it up as a poster or something - see the page above for a downloadable link

That photo is a retouched version of the semaphore binz press photo.

So far, we have the New Jersey Heb and the Red Grandy Westy, both being cover cars from FCG which are still known to exist. Anyone know of any others?

I thought it looked a little weird...

I just noticed it has no gas door too.
