Motor locked up the night before Bugout. Valve spring broke and sent the valve into the piston. Found some used 83 mm 40hp big bore pistons, had Smitty fix the valve seat in my head and bought some new valves. Hopefully I can find some time this weekend to put it back together.

Thanks, the mirrors actually mount on the end of the chrome trim (Albert swan neck mirrors)

Got the birth certificate for the vert. Found out it was part of the "tourist delivery program" The car was ordered from a US VW dealer, built at the factory then sent somewhere in England for the owner to drive while visiting there. Once their vacation was over the car was shipped back to the states by VW! This was a hustle by VW so that they could exceed the amount of cars they could legally import each year!
