Hi all itís with great regret I am going to have to hang up the headlights.  I need to find a good home for Bobbie due to having too much on my plate. She has been a blast.

Those that know her I need say no more but she is a 1971 EPC Hustler swb old school buggy and 1600cc,twin Weber 34s,wide steel wheels,king and link pin front beam,high back seats,4 seater,roll bar,harnesses,mot till July 21, good tyres,runs and sounds great with stainless cannons,good floor pans,full wet weather gear,lots of receipts,v5 states vw convertible,copy of every registration v5 issued way back to 1971.  Iíve had her resprayed and re done the dash with Chrome.

She was rebuilt about 10+ yrs ago new floor pans,napoleons hat etc.engine rebuilt about 4yrs ago.Its a 1200 gearbox,runs fine.Anything else you need to know pm me.

Donít do it Tansui.
Think long and hard. Like Snoopy says, stick her in storage if you have to.  :-\ :-\
