for about $100

where a real set for correct restoration runs $1000-$1500 for nice ribbed or grooved ones. To get this car "correct' is probably $10k to fix as the missing parts are all expensive

looks like a non-screw connector key (ignition switch) really wrong.
the ashtray looks like a later version too?

it was bugging me too that when flipped up to see the battery (why you'd weld a bolt in the wrong spot to hold an optima battery rather than a correct 6 volt battery??) that the springs on the underside are from a later seat bottom. (which is why it might fit so poorly?) Should be all coil springs, not the zig zag type. (and the paint runs on the tunnel are a nice touch too for a $75K car)

odd that there's that much gap under the seat back when mating to the bottom? That stitching doesn't line up well, so maybe the backrest isn't straight?

yes there are many many things wrong, and I know Randy does his best to write ads, he often misses things.


only after painstaking research when building mine, which often makes zwitters so unique, and so wonderful when you see a really good restoration.
Not picking on Randy, just a buyer who might pay that much for a car might want to know what's not right if they expect a fine restoration

if the car was from Germany, wouldn't the speedo be in KM not in MPH? Hard to see if the speedo has the right arrows

even on an older un-restored zwitter, those stitched strips on the rear seat are supposed to be padded and raised like this.

and I'm pretty sure the herringbone doesn't run under the window before the panel) I don't see any "L" luggage brackets under the rear window either?

out of curiousity, i tried later seats in my zwitter, but they were super close to the door panels with just that bit of extra width, just like these.

I now see how the frame rubs the material when the backrest is pushed forward, that won't wear well at all.

While were at it - incorrect decklid , pop out windows and antenna w/ no radio

I don't see the triangle under the hood where the VW emblem is and it seems like the hood prop is on the hinge bolt. also, I don't see the 4 brick crest. Think

Initially when I talk to him he said six months. Then six months turn into four more months. Which is now a year. The one time I did ask him when he thought it might come out. He asked if I sold my car. Im just saying how hard would it be to give me a rough idea .Instead of being so vague. I was super excited to hear he was going to be in a magazine. But the disappointment is crushing every time you look in the magazine and its not there yet. Ive been doing Vw for decades. I was in Readers ride of hot VWs once in the early 90s it was neat I wanted to be in the magazine . This is a bucket list type a thing. I can only wait and hope !

That doesn't mean it still won't show up. Show coverage can take 9 or 10 months to get published, and car features much longer.
