Anyone know of any low mileage splits out there? Saw one with under 50k original kilometers and never painted in PA recently. Any other sightings of others?

You can count ours as one of them.
1949 Belgian standard with 83k original km., first paint and all numbers matching.

I remember an azure 1951 split from belgium that was announced years ago. An untouched low mileage car in original paint, upholstery and matching numbers. It had additional red double-reflectors above the taillights. Have no pictures.

pastellgreen, I think you are referring to the car that Paul Horvath used to own.

There are pics of that car in his gallery under his samba username: p horvath

I don't know what that is, this car is in private ownership. Blue in colour and never painted, even the tires are original, quite the time capsule. Just not sure how many would still be out there in this shape?
