Just a couple of pics from the last few trips with the Autovilla. So far, its proven to be a fantastic car and certainly one of my most favorable VW purchases ever. Its passed just over the 8000km mark since I purchased it earlier this year and it hasn't skipped a beat.

So, my early autovilla has hit another good turning point in its life.

From this thread below, thanks to Fig again for sharing these adds.

This arrived the other day.

It is unfortunately going to be a donor. There was one part that was very important though.

This is why..

So now my autovilla can be converted back to what it was supposed to be.

What's the VIN on the "1973" Autovilla Sean? I'm sure it's a 1974 model.

Never bothered to correct the post, but yes, it is a 74 model.

I think it was purchased in December 73 in the books, so I think that’s why I listed it as a 73.
