Re: Chassis Number

I'm guessing it's this one?... https://www.ssvc.org.uk/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=122216&p=916255#p916255 It's clearly been fully restored, so I'm going to guess the original VIN was cut out* and when it needed a VIN for export or re-registration it was stamped.

Re: Chassis Number

... I believe suggests its a '65 onwards vehicle.... A '65 would have a second vin plate on the side of the overhead air box in the cab. I'm guessing it's missing because you haven't mentioned it.

Re: Rear Hub Oil Leak

Assuming your hub nut is 46mm across the flats, you don't need any of the washers in the kit, and you don't need the bigger of the two O-rings. They're for the older units (hub nut 36mm across the flats) and beetles. You just need the oil seal, paper gasket, the smaller of the O-rings in the kit, y...

Declare it as a Vehicle of Historic Interest ...
