VW 1500 Members: Scott Taylor's 1962 T34

VIN#: 0 035 272 (April '62)

: Pacific Blue and Blue White

BACKGROUND: I bought the Ghia in 1994 and it has been stored for most of the time. I've had it awaiting restoration. Judging from the early '60s Bendix radio and Hickok brand seat belts it has been in the U.S. since it was new, and in California since at least the mid-70s according to information from the previous owner. It's very complete but it needs a total restoration.

RESTORATION: I'm starting with getting the mechanicals in order and will then move on to the bodywork and interior, which need to be completely redone. I've been collecting original parts and accessories for it for over ten years.
