57 dove blue

Post by joannedoyle »

We'll I thought I would put up a thread of the new purchase.
We recently sold our 1959 11 window via ssvc as we fancied a change.
It was a sad day when she drove down the rd for the last time :(

We set about looking for an early Porsche 911 but a bus I've spotted at several shows turned up for sale and we had to have it.
It belonged to leemo, a member on here who has recently started work on his new 54 rhd viewtopic.php?f=8&t=98956

Anyway. This bus is complete with nothing for me to do except put some pictures up over the next few days of the work that been done.

Hope you like it :)
