Found a complete 54 deluxe oval in my backyard.

Postby 68slammedbay » Sat Dec 13, 2014 3:29 pm

Just wanted to post my latest find. Got a lead on a 54 deluxe through a customer. The car was located under my nose my whole life. I live in Vancouver and took a small ferry to the guys house and there it was a fully complete 54 deluxe beetle with everything it came with from the factory including original 36 . Car has some rust issues but all fixable . Heater channels are good, I was able to get all the bolts off!! Anyways so now I gotta order panels from Mika and get this car done.

Hell yah there are these finds still out there. A buddy of mine found a mind 21 window in roberts creek on the Sunshine Coast. For all the years I was there and never sniffed it out. It sat in a barn for over 20 years all og. With a little cleaning of the fuel fins, change plugs and distributor the damn thing fired right up!

From what I understand the guy has more treasures hidden away that he is not interested in selling YET

Sweet score on the oval.......
What do you do with 365 used rubbers? Make a tire and call it a Good Year.
