Hi ! Sorry that this is not a MB or GPW but maybe it's gonna be also interesting for somebody. Just barn find last weekend in Eastern Europe. Well, frankly it has all original matching numbers - engine and frame as well as US Army markings. What's yours opinion ? I'm just working to put this junk into my garage Piotr - Warsaw, Poland
Hi ! Thanks for your comments so far. Steve! You're welcome - our seaside is really cool. WJohn ! I'm rather G505's guy (WC7, WC15 and WC12) so I didn't decide yet. But this is a possibility that this toy went to my friend Jacek's place (http://www.ww2vw.com). Albert! Im not interesting about the right leg, but the kidney sounds OK for me Another two pics today - an interior and engine. Piotr

OMG, (oh my goodness). What a beauty and so nearly complete. Piotr you have made some people (like me) very envious!! One day I might own one , So far I have an excellent windscreen and NOS exhaust silencer -Uum, I need a few more parts to assemble It appears there are two data plates left or are the others steel and have rusted?? Good luck who ever ends up with it. Regards ... Peter
As a GPA owner I would say Don't restore it. Yes get it running and IF necessary pull the motor for a rebuild but I beleive the South Africa GPA is the only other GPA in the world that is this original condition. If you choose to do a total restoration then take at least a 100 photos for reference to help guide us other poor GPA restorers.
