Last Sunday I went on a very special mission… I had to get a car out of a garage! Can You see it already? Treasure hunting Bob Style…
Let’s get closer….
More closer, can You see it now… lurking???
a cool late-model Type Three… isn’t this nice???
And its out! Incredible… read on to get the complete story….
This car was bought brand new by Mr. René. He passed away couple of years ago but his children always took good care, started it up regularly and washed it times to times… featuring original 53.000km this is a real cool and very original car. there is absolutely no trace of rust NO PLACE!! all the weak spots they look like NEW… Paint is all original with some minor touch ups…
When the children thought about selling the VW Gods pointed them my direction, and I was the only one that was able to buy this car!
On the trailer and ready to go… this poor baby might not know what’s happening! It was 47 years in this house, in this neighbourhood…
53.000 original km, last service in 1986 and full service notes! The original registration card (I never saw that before from a French car) and a super cool history!
This car hardly drove in the rain… when it rained Mr.René prefered to leave the car inside and drive his Solex motor bicycle. he preffered he went wet and the car stayed dry… one time he drove it to work when snow surprised him, there was about 0.5cm of snow on the car when he came out of the factory… he was all over his boiling point!!! He drove home and dried literally the car from 5 to 10pm (a mere 5 hrs!!) with an hairdryer!! Imagine!!
Aren’t they beautiful when this original???
This car will be for sale soon, as I can’t keep them all.. unfortunately… if you’re fancy a low mileage all original and crazy history Type 3 square back just contact me on Bob@BBT4vw.com
Transmission is serial nr 2-0423 196 what means its made somewhere around June 1952, it’s a fully crash (totally unsynchronized) gearbox in very dry condition, disassembled in the sixties and always dry stored over all those years…
The Front axle is serial nr 2-048571 what means its made March 1953 its complete with spindles and is really rock solid, same thing, as transmission dismantled in the sixties and ever kept dry ever since!
Transmission and Front axle are either available together or seperate, choice is yours! Everybody realise these are very, very rare parts! Especially in this totally untouched condition… no cancer, no rot, no place! The best money can buy for your project!
Who brings You extreme ultra cool buses? We do, At Virgin Outlaws our hunters work day and night to bring you only the best of the best… here’s another untouched dreambus!
Welcome to a very nice original drivers cabin, front bench needs upholstery, and few extra holes in the dash for the radio, but that’s it! No hacker jobs…
Cargo floor can’t come any better!
The raingutters are all good, no rust in the roof! this is a BIG advantage for any project!
What a beast! What a dream bus… 1958 being my favorite year, the best of ALL bus worlds! Pressed bumpers, nicest colors of Palm Green Sand Green, believe me, in 2016… they don’t come any better, these buses take an arm and a leg to get these days!!!
We striked again… we’re very proud we did, this is just a KILLER bus! No questions asked about that… If you’re on the market for such a fine piece of Volkswagen history don’t delay and send me an email right we away….Bob@bbt4vw.com
You buy a better Volkswagen from the better VW guys… Volkswagens is what we know and what we do, what we breath. We speak Vw’s and love our cars till death. it’s the only thing we do actually…., we dig them, haul them and pamper them… Virgin Outlaws is the most cool VW place to buy your VW on the entire planet earth, tell them BBT Bob told you!
Apal was the last proud Car manufacturer in belgium. The Apal Coupe must have been his top model. The Apal Coupe was pretty succesful in international rallies in its day.
This particular Apal coupe is just a nice driver quality car, one of the best we ever saw actually.
The Apal Coupe is a beautiful creature from the Apal works, its sits nicely on a VW chassis and use VW mechanics, but still it was always recognised as a real car because You bought them finished from the factory!
Dashboard is really nice made in wood, the clock was in repair on the moment of the picture shoot , but is finished now and will be mounted in the deal… before delivery.
The car comes with two sets a seats, the original Apal coupe seats and a set of Scat Procliner seats…
Restored, build, enjoyed and stored nice and dry in the garage light years ago, found by coincidence by a BBT hunter and picked up by yours truly himself… that’s at short the history of this former super smooth show winner!
Can You feel the summer already???
Rock solid survivor from the eighties, cal look age… real well build back then, and survived very well!
This baby comes very complete , with all special oval convertible only parts… easy project…
Super smooth with the steel Porsche style rims that hide the aluminum Porsche 356 A brakes… complete and functioning!
Interior is your typical eighties style, and ready for a re-upholstery, this car is so easy to make bone stock again!
Rocksolid also in the luggage compartment behind the rear seat… if You restored an oval window convertible before You know how poor this area can be, but not this car…
The car needs floor plates if you want to make it right, but that’s all, … and they even don’t look too bad at all…
The rest of the body looks more like this…:) There might be “some” work on the chassis strengtheners, but nothing real bad, all is easy to repair, not to replace!
Saved the best for last… 2.0 liter engine… professional re-awakened from its “hibernation” with new carburetors etc… turns like a Swiss watch… and has loads of power!!
This is a cool project, and very price worth, but off course the Porsche brakes, serious High performance engine, all the “special” parts in place and the solid condition add up some money on its own..
If you’re serious about this just send me an email for the full picture shoot with all details and/or the price… we really want to go this car to a good new and caring owner who knows what he talks about or want to learn at least seriously! This is heritage, not just a toy!
