The letter in the February edition of your magazine and photograph from Mr. T. J. M. Dobson, prompts me to send you the enclosed photograph of a VW taken some three years ago.
You will see that it is a 4-door saloon, and was found in St. Anton in the Arlburg region of Western Austria. I believe there is a little man in St. Anton who collects crashed VWs and joins them together to make this rather unique model. Close inspection of the car showed it to be about 9 in. longer on the wheelbase, but the only noticeable join mark was on the stainless steel trim on the edge of the running-boards. There was no join to be seen in the roof, and the whole car was extremely well finished and looked a most professional job.
