Re: My Field Find UK RHD '66 11 Window Canterbury Pitt

Wow!! Love to hear about a UK find!! Well done for rescuing her, watch the chassis doesnt snap while moving it, moisture from the ground causes the bottom to be very brittle on these kind of finds!! Cant wait to see progress!!

1959 Portuguese 11 window Kombi
