Back to 85

Built in the early 80s by Street Machine's tech editor Colin Burnham and then featured in the December 1985 issue, this 1968 bug was an inspirational VW for many and is recognised as one of the UK's first British Cal looks. Now owned by Russell Ritchie and restored from the ground up by The Paintbox, we were drafted in to bring the interior back to life exactly how Colin originally had it. This included a grey wool cloth headliner, black carpets, restore the front and rear interior panels using 3mm birch face ply with the original cloth inserts (cleaned) & new black PVC. We also reinstalled the original factory sliding sunroof which included adjusting, setting up, and realigning with many new parts.
