Description: Found in Everett's Scrapbook on TheSamba. On March 23, 2003, I located this 1965 Type 34 in Phoenix, AZ. It appears to be very original and complete, down to the original engine #. It had had been hit HARD in the front right at some point, enough to buckle the gas tank mounting lip. The nose had a slight bump as well. The left side had a slight buckle, the result of someone recently backing into the car in a parking lot. For some reason, the front turn signals were eliminated when the front end was repaired. It had been brought over by the current owner's father-in-law sometime in the 1980s. His father-in-law worked in a body shop in Germany and the car was left there as the owners did not want to pay to repair the front end damage. There was thick bondo on the front right corner and the headlight bucket looked malformed. The fog lights were missing. Original ignition was d! amaged and a new ignition switch had been installed in the dash. Glass is all good, except the windshield, which is cracked. Original Brick Red door panels. Original dashes and door tops appear to have been recovered with flat black vinyl at some point but still had an generally original appearance. Accessory seat belts had been mounted straight through the floor boards in the typical style. The car was running/driving but had a bad starter so I could not test drive it. Had been sitting for a few months but was a daily driver in 2002 and the registration was current. Included original owner's manual dated August, 1964. Overall, suitable as a parts car or for someone who wanted to weld in a new front clip.
