Re: went to see a '56 bus, need some quick advice please

If there have been repairs and or major rust so it has lost the stamping, it does happen. What you have to decide is if the bus you are looking at and the info in its log book is an early wolfsburg bus. find out its history. Then I guess its time to gamble This will help https://www.thesamba.com/vw/...

great resto going on
