I have now have two 1962s!!

I heard about a green 1962 sitting outdoors in some kind of local junk yard (with 2 bay window kombi's). I visited and found this little green guy. I did the deal a few days later.

PROS - 6V, 1300 non original motor - motor runs, Wipers work, RHS lights work
CONS - rust, dent in engine cover, rust, 4 different tyres, rust, no brakes,

She revealed a half decent paint job after two "cut & polishes".

Many of my Type 1 parts collection are able to be used to bring the green 1962 back to life and the aim is to become my daily drive. My ultimate aim is for a 1962 Karmann Ghia, so maybe this green one is a stepping stone.

The grey one is my weekly drive with 31000 miles on it.

This wss a few weeks ago but i bought this 66 for 3000 for the bug and $500 for a set of centerlines. It was a coworkers first car, his father bought it in 82. The last county sticker was from 2008.

A few days before i bought it they bought a engine from my mechanic, i was quoted $2500 for that engine a few weeks back. They did not even test drive it afterwards.

My goal is to do one project or improvement a week at minimum. Right now i am trying to return it to stock. I have replaced the aftermarket shifter and steering wheel. Need to replace the doors (ill trade if anybody wants the solid windows) then i am going to raise the car back to factory heigth and ut bumpers back on. I may weld the sun roof shut.
