Our next project is this early right hand drive barn door split screen. We picked this up in Antwerp in Belgium. Work has begun and we are currently collecting all the little bits and pieces of original trim we can find.
We are planning on some subtle customising but will play homage to the era by sticking to period paint installing a replica original style Westfalia interior made from walnut.
The van began life in 1954 and as a 11 window kombi model. Judging by the documentation we do have, it appears the van spent its early life in Indonesia somewhere.
We are currently investigating its history further.
We intend to install new life into it and return it to better than new condition.
