    Well, after 35 years of drooling every time I saw one of these cars I finally have one.  Granted it’s nothing but a project right now but I’m stoked.

    Based on what I’ve seen on this site and some minor research it looks like I have a Classic Roadster VW based Duchess.

    The body is in very good condition other than the paint job but the rest calls for lots of sweat, time, and money.  But I’m finally at an age where I have a humble supply of all three.

    I will have lots of questions and will try to use the “search” feature to its fullest but will say in advance, “thanks” for all the forthcoming help.

    Will post pics soon.
