Hi, I have just purchased a 1959 car in lovely condition and would greatly appreciate a little advice.

Where can I best source parts, the car is very original (6v,semaphores etc) and I would like where possible to maintain this?

The car is missing the panel behind the dash,i.e when you lift the bonnet there is a gap behind the dash,the workings are visible?

I'm sure there will be many other queries as I "find my way", many thanks in advance for any help.

Hi, welcome to the forum.

There are several places in the UK that stock parts for 6v VWs including:

Status VW Parts - https://www.status-vw.co.uk 

Karmann Konnection - https://www.karmannkonnection.com 

VW Heritage - https://www.vwheritage.com 

I know Barclay at Status VW has the wiring covers listed on his website in the bonnet & deckled parts section - £18.50
