How Many Barn Doors are in the Ssvc?

Post by VwVanDude » Tue May 21, 2013 3:31 pm

I have just bought Simon Phillips 1954 Barn door today. Owning a Barn door has always been a dream of mine....... and wondered how many are still out there on the road in the UK?
Does anyone know?

We have 56 entries on the van register for vans registered in 1951,2,3,or 4. That total rises to 104 if you include 1955. Without cross referencing registration numbers and chassis numbers, I can't tell you how many of those entries are unique, but it should give you a rough idea.
