Ran the vin# and its a Jan. 1954 Oval. The visor is even good in it. Its amazing once you start to clean things up how much better they look.

Nope ! Did find an AJC news paper from 1964. It had advertised a brake shoe special for $23.95 with a 30k mile warrenty. Thought that was cool.

So many ovals. I have or should I say our good buddy Bryce has changed my name at my request. Since the yellow German Look is gone and that is what my son called it when he was little. I figured it was time to move on. So I am now vwovalchild. Thanks again Bryce

It was fun today saving another one. Or at least bringing it home to be a donor to continue the legacy.
Thanks Tim for the help
