Type 4 Volkswagens really have that distinctive appeal. Unique machine, indeed. Very Happy

Thanks for the vote of confidence.

I kyped the photo from somewhere on the internet - the color was what I wanted and the body style was right - I got my son to graft on the one-piece headlights and the VW Baja wheels (I have a set of 5), and he 'painted' the bumpers for me, too.

Somewhat humorous background story to this car. I have a pair of the one-piece headlights that I acquired on a trip to Germany in the late Eighties (I might have paid 10 Marks at the wrecking yard where I found them). At the time, I didn't have a 411. Consequently, I can joke that I bought a car to fit some headlights I had on hand (sort of like a lyric from Haywire Mac's "The Bum Song No. 2" where he says, "I've got a button here lady; could you sew a shirt on it for me?")

Sorry to say that the 411 is 'project #2' after an Acapulco Thing restoration. I have been acquiring other parts, though:

Euro front turn signals (like in the photo - don't wrap around the side so far)
NOS amber rear turn signal lenses
NOS brake/tail/backup lenses
NOS shocks, struts, & steering damper
NOS Master cylinder, Clutch master, & Clutch slave
Rebuilt disc calipers
NOS Balljoints
NOS wiper arms
Km Speedo
Clock with gas heater timer
Premium IV radio (Mk IV Jetta/Golf) with Phatbox

My 'modest' plans include completely rebuilding the engine, using oversize P&Cs and adding hydraulic lifters, and renewing as much as possible the 4 speed manual transmission. I hope to do essentially a complete restoration-quality job including a major tear down of the body so that everything can be painted inside and out.

Wish me luck as I'm not getting any younger!

Thank you...

I'd like to trade for something valued @ $4k if poss.

I'd also take the same cash amt.

I just bought a Bus, so money's tight, but if I can make it trhough W/O selling it I plan to keep it.

If I do sell it I'd look to get another someday, but they're hard to find in nice shape unfortunately....

Well, you have a very unique Vee-dub, Type 4 that is. If I had enough money, why not. But, I am still completing my Type 3 Fasty. But in the future, I am thinking of buying a Type 4. Another Vee-dub style. Very cool, indeed.

Like I said, I was always curious about the Type IV's, but never gave it much thought to owning one, but then I lucked into this car...

All I can say is they grow on you bigtime!!

Funny thing too is I really don't know what I'd want to trade for...
I have a real softspot for Swallowtail Rabbits and split Buses...

I like the car better than most anything anybody could offer me, so it looks like I'm gonna keep it.....even if it takes me a few years to get it restored to top notch it'll be worth it in the long run.
