Just to throw another pebble into the pond...In the very early 70s MRT was displayed at Stafford in a Volkswagen Convention. In those days we owned a 1968 Beetle, seeing MRT and talking to its than owner sparked an interest in early VWs. From there we found and bought TJJ 62 (1949 1-101991) and then promoted and began what in later days became the Historic Volkswagen Club.MRT may or may not be the first.... but there is no doubt it has got a lot to answer for!So I add my thanks to Maurice for that conversation in the early 70s.Rod
Rattletrap is the one. It was in the papers before there were any UK vintage VW shows. Was never aware of MRT in those early days, and anyway, there were a few other private import split windows, some before MRT. Colboure Garages had a few, then theres the RHD one LHV763 mentioned on this thread.
