Good afternoon all, I’m trying to track down my old beetle I had when I lived in Hull. I've posted up on Facebook groups and tried a few resto shops, but a bit of a dead end.
TAL256L, DVLA is showing its sorned and purple. Last v5c issued in Feb 2015, after it was sold on eBay.
see here: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vw-classic-beetle-1973-project-1300-1773301449 - pics below.
The owner in the advert was based in the Shipley, BD17 area.
I owned it between 1989 /90 and 1995 ish and was responsible for the wizard kit, zoom tube, Lancia Delta seats and aluminium interior, but it was light blue when I sold it. From what I can gather it was then in the same family for 20 odd years. Seems to have been sorned since 2015, from the ad it looks like age caught up with it and needed a lot of work doing on it. I am wondering if the current owner would be up for selling it, so I can bring it along with me for my mid life crisis.

Thanks in advance

BNM

You wouldn't lose that in a big car park! I have had my 1302LS since 1982 and it is not going anywhere until I shed my mortal coil. I hope you find her/him and can plunge yourself up to your elbows in rusty floor pans, frame head and door pillars until your mid life crisis ends. Have you put this on Volkszone and The Samba? Lots of us air heads on there.

Thanks Crasher, yes, it is up on Volkszone and also a load of FB groups. Haven't put it on The Samba yet. Thanks for the heads up. Cheers
