Re: Freya - 1961 Freiwillige Feuerwehr Bulli (Fire Bus)

It was originally, as far as I can gather, just a kombi. It had a flip up buddy seat on the bulkhead behind the passenger seat.

Re: Door Handles

So I thought I would try with a side door handle first (as that's the first spare I found! Cleaned it up, found the code stamped on the shaft, but no sign of any grub screw anywhere?
