Such interesting history. Those photos in that link are amazing! Priceless to get a bird eyes image of that time.

Thanks for posting Mike and everyone else.

It looks like 43009 has either a one or three-piece front bumper, as there is a sleeve behind the plate. The picture isn't clear enough to tell whether the "sleeve" is welded or pressed into place.

I believe all prototypes were a split bumper with a plate bolted in the middle to tie them together. It appears to be this way on all examples but some pics do not show this detail so clearly.

I have followed this thread from the very beginning, and was lucky enough to see 006 at Hessich Oldendorf last year. ( One of many highlights of that trip! Another was seeing your museum and workshop Cool Cool Cool )

I haven't posted on here before, but I come here regularly for my 'fix'. What you guys are doing is amazing and inspiring, not just from a technical and mechanical viewpoint, but also by resurrecting a truly incredible piece of history. Applause

And I didn't want to clutter this thread with superlatives Embarassed Embarassed Rolling Eyes

Anyway, it has really made my day that some photos I found while surfing the web may be of help, thank you Very Happy

The video was uploaded 6 weeks ago and with only just over 500 views, I assumed not many know about it.

When I look at the video, I can imagine myself finding that car, I'm always looking out for "odd" cars when I go somewhere new. But then again, I'm happy it ended up in the right hands, becasue I sure don't have the skills to bring it back to it's glory like that.

I found a Split Beetle on an abandoned parking lot in Brienz (Switzerland) when I was 11 years old, wonder what happened to that car....

This video was shot by the guy who actually found the car back in 2003. He uploaded it on You Tube and posted a link to it here, soon after this thread was started. Then the video disappeared from You Tube for some reason, and was subsequently re-uploaded and the new link posted here....

This video and the 2 photos I posted here in February this year, are the oldest known contemporary images of the car.

Not sure if this has been asked before, but did these people filming this in 2003 know what they were looking at? Or was it just (morbid) curiosity? I can't imagine if they knew what it was that it would sit in that field for another 5 years.....

I don't think that ever got answered..That being said though, had they known, they may have left it be because they didn't have the resources to properly restore it. That and I personally thought, the first time I saw it, that the only thing that made it look like a VW was the W deck lid and its round shape. I mean, most of us were skeptics when it was first discovered and said to be a VW38 anyway..But I don't think it was said weather or not those who found it in 2003 knew weather or not it was a VW38

The people filming the car at that time had a pretty good idea what it was, at least they knew that it was kdf..!
They are members of the local vw club, and they wanted to buy that car but the owner wouldn't sell the car at that time..

In the beginning of this treat you can read all about it!!
