Betsy

We have had Betsy now for just over a week.  She is fantastic and makes us smile everytime we go out in her.  In fact I grin everytime I look out of the window.  We haven’t done much work on her yet of course, but we have cleaned up the engine a little – points, plugs etc and we fixed the wipers yesterday.  Having a bit of an issue with the bonnet after taking it off – it won’t close again properly at one side.  Guess we’ll have to keep tinkering with that.

I am currently researching her original colour as we would like to put her back to that, so far it looks like a dark blue which we reckon will look fab with all the chrome.

As we go along I will post pics and descriptions of the resto in progress.

About VeeDubKate

I am the owner of this blog, I am passionate (some would say obsessed) with classic VWs (Volkswagens). I run the website classicvolks.com - a growing resource for VW owners and enthusiasts, from VW hire, to restoration, to events and shows to technical information and a forum to share knowledge and fun. Most weekends throughout show season you are likely to find me at a VW show, or indeed running one. I run Field of Dreams Aircooled VW show at York Racecourse, just minutes from the city centre and I co-organise Dubs int' Dales in the Yorkshire Dales, along with Dubtricks. Classic Volks the brand is growing daily and I am constantly adding to the website, the latest addition being the classified adverts and the shop page where I am now selling Classic Volks branded t-shirts, these are available in a variety of sizes and colours.
