ECCLES 70 NOTCH, YELLOW SB (updated the notch pics)

Post by Eccles » 17th May 2011 - 2:19pm

hi there been lurking a while and today i decided to join up and say hi

my name is Eccles and i live in south east burbs of melbourne

always lived inner city and rode bikes therefore started collecting bikes

not just road bikes but all types of bikes

a few years go pass and i get married have a couple of lil ones and have to move to the burbs, now at this stage im 33 and never drove, cycling became a hassle as i lived so far away now

so came time to drive and get my first car

always wanted a type 3 and the wife told me to get one as i would kick myself if i didnt

so 5 months ago i got this

Image

Image

Image

and a couple months ago she looked like this

Image

had heaps of mech work done and the body work is a long term project, already got the bad rust

and this was 2 weeks ago

Image

and as she sits today

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

and some of the little things i have gathered for her

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

hope you guys like her

German designation for 1600s is 1600 for Notch, 1600L for Notch with higher spec trim, 1600 T for Fastback, TA for basic trim and TL for de luxe trim, 1600A for basic trim Variant, 1600L Variant for de luxe. Then there can be an E on the end (eg TLE) for fuel injection rather than twin carb. The Aussie TS was a higher spec they made for their market, I understand.

Fascinating - even if OT (and ott?). I hope it doesn't start an "I'm more odd than you" thread, though. We've already proved we're not normal by running 40 year-old (and more) cars.
