I never saw it. Was it a fleetline Dave?
This one in for sale in Spain at the mo
Yes it was the bay front split back and split cargo doors, 15 window, LB rear lights and front indicators
The parts bin type 2
So were a fleetlines built in South America or Germany? Ie were they made of toffee wrapper gauge metal or German gauge?
All SA is my understanding.
It looked weird with windows where the vents should be and the vents in the side like a splittie
I drove through Argentina and Chilé in one last year for three months.. I loved the barn doors!
I would if I didn’t already have one.
Being a split anorak I can say that the side doors are cargo doors, a barn door is the engine hatch >56
Karmann Konnection sold one last October for £11,995, looked ok from a distance and was imported from Bali where it had been restored!! Body panels remodelled from old washing machines like Cuba does comes to mind.
Excuse my incompetence
I envy it, hours of my life I wont get back spent working on and studying the bleedin things.
The vw was the only original car to make it up there..
Loved the Trans Am live rear axle..
It's a load of tosh..
I knew a guy fitted similar to a 6 litre, v8 years ago..
He reckoned a jam jar with water in it was giving him more mpg..
Yea right... a 6 litre engine would need a bit more hydrogen than that..
Trying to drive up those high roads is one thing but I can see why they left the vehicles up there because trying to drive DOWN them would be not good with the buses brakes or perhaps they could have chucked a anchor out the back or parachute, load of weak knee pansies!
I was thinking that too! Twice my brakes have over heated just on Derbyshire hills!
In the USA they just carry a spare carburettor jetted lean for altitude. The oxygen thing was probably more letting it cool down while faffing.
Three nuts (2 manifold one throttle cable) , one fuel pipe, one air hose and a few vacuum hoses and 2 wires to swap.
Engine braking if you have compression..
I really must get up and go to work..... until then, I’ve found another one . I rather like it too. No rust, refurbished interior etc
That just looks “wrong” to me, neither one thing nor the other, and I usually like your “finds”
