Last couple of days Belgium was hit by …many snow… so BBT Jerry used his lunchbreak to make this beautiful ppicture for all of us… no way our classic VW leave their stables now, too much salt on the road!
Hereby we do offer an original Famag Autobox, a real käfergarage as You see them advertised in the old German car magazines…
This baby is all restored, the frame and mechanism is all original and in perfect shape. The outer (metal) sheetpanels are replaced with zincplated steel plates to avoid any further corrosion… this can be painted if you like to, or just leave it “as is”…
This Autobox is fully operational, the big rear door opens with just one simple step on of both pedals, situated one on each door…
Period publicity looked like this
Even the hinges are still the original!
How cool looks a beetle inside this? This should be fit in any VW shop, museum or any garden!!
as far as we could figure out there was only two different models made in germany, this Famag brand and the “Lilybox” as we have in our private collection. also some Swedish manufacturers but they used wood as far as we could determine, what the change on survivors will be little… as far as we know till now, this is the only Famag that survived!
Nice shed inside! and handy too!
one more old shot out of an original brochure….
Can be transported either on a car trailer or we can ship by truck, boat, or airplane,
we ship worldwide without any hassle… don’t let this weird and unique gem not disappear…

VirginOutlaws,com strikes again!!
Death straight and super solid, only place it needs attention is battery tray, this baby is all burned of and faded from what we think sitting since the seventies in a walnut orchard somewhere inland California not to far from Paso Robles…
What a beast!! This is pure patina, more would be illegal!!
This baby is on its way home and we’re expecting it somewhere in january… and yes it will be for sale…
If you’re interested, just let me know, I’m easy to reach on Bob@BBT4VW.com
The last trip, drove from Los Angeles to Arizona and from there back to the bay area for flying home…
The reason of this last road trip was to see my friend Chris from US Autobarn fame… (remember the BIG junkyard? That was Chris’) Chris is ill and only God knows how long he will be longer with us… a last visit was so appropriate and I left LA on Wednesday afternoon right before Thanks giving, Probably I don’t have to tell You traffic was a mess, a big mess, It took me 5 hrs to Barstow something i can do normally in 1 hr 45 mins…. sjeez!
I like to drive in the desert and sunrise in the desert is very special, always! I enjoyed a real nice one on Hwy 40 going east… this is like the old route 66…
Hwy 40 is really cool to drive… lot of “desert” scenery…:)
Getting to Needles is driving through a small town right on the Historic Route 66
Arrived at Chris place… super cool (LARGE!) garage with his own personal man cave!
Meltebeke is besides a name of a town in West of Belgian country also the name of a VW Dealer ship…. I didn’t know that…:)
Here’s the man… Chris with his wife and yours truly… it was so good to see him!
The way back was very cool too, as it was full daylight now… so here some impressions…
So the last thing to do for me when I was back in the bay area was loading up my trailer… full size trailer for a half a bus!…:)
So now I’m about ready to leave to the shipper, drop my car and trailer and “Uber” myself to the airport… flying home…. Home sweet home!!
You do not cut up a 55 oval window every day anymore, especially not a ragtop, so if You You do it better in style… like a real rancher….
this roof is coming home baby!
don’t worry the car was not savable, and would be crushed if we didn’t cut it! so we bought it and just chopped it up!
