bugragtop - 1962 ragtop deluxe

Stored in a German barn in 1976, found in 2005, this original paint, original '62 rag has all the odd color coded goodies you can wish for on a '62.
Originally bought and driven in the Hannover area, it was imported to The Netherlands in 2006 and extremely lowered. I own the car since 2007 and brought it a bit more back to the stock appearance.

All mechanics have been updated and it now runs a powerful 82 bhp 1600 engine with a long ratio gearbox.
Plan is to have the back raised to stock height and swap the long rear axles with short ones for improved stock appearance. USA taillight have been replaced with EU lenses.
Popouts are original Sekurit and the interior houses a working Akkord Autotransistor 716 picknick radio.
