BBT News


As the world keeps on turning and the gas keeps on flowing (only the prices go up) we try to keep up with all new parts arriving weekly.
We got the news from receiving that some larger product lines and some new fine productions did arrive and being sorted now in order to publish you in the upcoming weeks.

Purchasing is continuing on their pricing schedules, this week more down as up they said, what’s a trend we like to see more!
BBT’s main focus is not price but quality off course, and usability before anything else.
We will never change that commitment even though we got plenty of chances to buy cheaper inferior products.
It’s good to compare prices, but it’s better to compare product Bob always says.

As said before we will enlarge our Type 3 product line and do so this week with some extra rubber & trim.
Also for the Type 4 engine aficionados we off er an extra crankshaft now to make your VW a real “zoef” machine…

Welcome to our weekly newsletter.

We enlarge our Type 3 window rubber and trim line.

BBT do offer Type 3 window seals in smooth Cal-look style or grooved as well for either aluminum or late model plastic trim.
In general aluminum window trim is used up to 1971 and plastic window trim used for 1972 and later models, or at least originally that was.

We add now rear window seal and aluminum trim for Notchback and Squareback models the BBT Type 3 window seal program.

Before1963 Volkswagen used another window and aluminum trim profile.
The early trim do not fit a later rubber or an early rubber cannot be dressed with a later model aluminum trim.
However both together are perfect replaceable through all by us offered window rubber and aluminum trim.
Size and fitting is 100% the same.

Too mild or too wild?

Friend of Da Houze Mark asked us to sell his incredible nice piece of VW coach build machinery for him.
Dannenhauer & Stauss are unmistakable counted to the nicest Volkswagen derivatives ever build.

This little gem offered here is a very special and ultra-unique automobile, top restored and ready to Rock & Roll.
That’s right, Mark recently finished a non-compromise restoration creating the stunning result the pictures show.

No expense spared, it will be hard to find a better one, if you’re able to find another D&S available at all!
