Junkyard Fasty

Post by Maccattack » 22nd July 2016 - 9:58pm

Hi all, not been a member for long and this is my first type3. Had many Bug projects in the fast so new toy should be interesing :lol:

First saw this for sale on thesamba and didnt plan to buy a type 3 but found myself going back for another look. In the end contacted seller but had no title as saved from a junk yard in southern california. Seller advise could get title and 3 weeks later had clean title in hand....story goes seller went to local junkyard for T25 parts and the fastback was two inline for crusher. Seller offered $300 and saved it. Then spend 2 years outside his shop. He then decided to move it on and this is where I come into the picture. Nobody interested on the samba I guess as not title on advert. I put in an offer that you couldnt even buy an engine for over here and was accepted....

She landed in UK 25th June 2016

Thanks AK
