Well it looks like Romano pulled the auction, lol. Hmmm I wonder who told him to do that?


It's called FRUAD and I think he got told so. Wink

It would be cool to have an exact date for the beginning of the alberts, I mean do anyone have an accessory booklet in which they are shown, and from what year? I would be surprised if you find them in a 52-53 book that's for sure. Maybe we could find out how way back they go.


Check this out. I have a pair of NOS Albert fender gaurds. The Beetle despicted in the box wears a set of swan neck mirrors & a set of hooded Albert mirror (on the A-pillar) The rear of the box is dated 1954.

AND REGARDING HOODED ALBERTS; according to my knowledge THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS ORIGINAL HOODED ALBERTS ( It's the truth!!!.

What has happend here are some smart guy once took the HOODED albert housings from a OPEL and VOLVO albert mirror and fitted to a swanneck mirror, they fit right on it takes 30 sec to replace it....
( yes albert supplied for several other european cars aswell ). And you actually choose to pay more for hooded fake alberts , WHAT A SHAME....


Here are some "hooded" Alberts that I found several years ago. The only reason I believed them to be for VW, is because the photograph on the box clearly despicts a VW in it.

I know these were made in 1965 because it is dated on the back of the box. Notice these Albert heads are made of aluminum and use a Grey plastic bezel to retain the glass in position.

I also have another hooded visor made of Chromed steel. It is very different from the way the glass is retained. It uses the regular transparent seal. I suspect it was manufactured earlier than the aluminum ones.

Thanks Petri Nut. I emailed "oldvwfreek" last week when he posted the highbid on those fakes. I guess he threw a lot of money on the bid because he thanked me, but he is still high bidder. I believe Romano should be turned into eBay for fraud. He lies about most of the parts he sells. He sells NSU and Opel as VW all the time. A freind of mine purchased some "split" deluxe wipers from him and found out they were NSU (Auto Union). The guy's a crook and people need to know. Thanks for your information.

Sorry guys I obviously made a mistake here, I wrote the story from a different point of view to clearify the truth about alberts, it was wrong of me.

I regret the details I have written here, it was not ment to offend anyone.

I might have expressed my self incorrectly, i was not ment in this way.

Thanks

i made out ok. personally i like the regular alberts better than the visored ones anyway. and i'm no Phil Weiner when it comes to selling parts. of course it's a business, and i did sell the mirror you sold me for over double what i bought it off you, so i made out ok.

those mirrors are nice, but not $4000 nice. just my opinion. and for Phil, let's not go there, think he has been discussed in great length already. i have known Phil for 6 years and i don't see myself doing any business with him due to his crazy prices.

if he had those visored alberts, those would go for $8000 easy in his book. he offered me an NOS set of the regulars alberts for $4500! he is so crazy, just gotta laugh.

again, no disrespect intened, your mirrors are very nice, just that i won't pay that kind of money for a set. if someone does, then great for you. by the way, i just bought a set of the regular alberts.

You can try contacting Phil Weiner out in Miami, Fl Heard he has a few sets for a great price.


Before you call, make sure you are sitting down and avoid calling if you have a weak heart as you will soon experience a shortness of breath before breaking out in uncontrollable laughter and slamming down the phone in disbelief.

http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=136820 Did you see these. That is not a bad price considering you do not have to re-chrome them.
