Well it's time for me to start another jigsaw puzzle, this time with our imported or overseas Jeans Beetle family of special models s761 s714 s716 & s744, all colours.
We need info from the production plate and also the vin minus the last three digits, as we are trying to set up a build database as in the picture attached, you don't need to worry about the special model number, build date or even colour we can work these out, you can even withhold your vin but it will help immensely if included.
On the next run of decal kits I will be including personalised rear quarter sets and engine lid script, in the run, and for those who don't want to change the external look the engine lid script will be available on its own for placement anywhere, for example the face of the glove box.
The external decal kit as per original spec but personalised, will be offered at the same price of the original kit.
Decal kit £23 posted (personalised) 5 piece kit
Engine lid script £5 posted (personalised) 1 piece
Original 1970's advert dated October 1973, courtesy of The Sun newspaper and our remake in colour.
If anyone has any original adverts re: the jeans it would be great to here from you, its always great to see new clippings.
and here's one published in Autometrix publications of "BEETLING" magazine of April 1974, using the same image and title for Goodliffe Garages LTD (Croydon)

Some may have noticed, but I have now moved the news feed to the home landing page, as it seems more appropriate for it to be there.
Our gmail address has been removed from the page as I wasn't getting the form submissions complete, I have now added Outlook & iCloud buttons, as well as one for Facebook
Lastly the photos in the galleries have all been updated
Another jeans famous on the show scene RSX 164M is now owned by a celeb', we knew it was a famous movie star but wasn't quite sure who.
Built by Marco de waal this stunning jeans will be enjoying the sunshine stateside by yes no other than Ewan McGregor of Star Wars fame, here's hoping he'll join us.
So what about it Ewan? I feel the force is strong with you.

Im desperately seeking any UK jeans or European VIN that falls in the range shown in the pic above, your VIN can be starred out as above, when submitting if you wish, I'm also after VIN that fit in the ranges below, just to get a clearer picture of production dates
114-2-057 to 059 (desperate for these)
114-2-211 to 212 (desperate for these)
114-2-216 (desperate for these)
114-2-238 (desperate for these)
if you have any before or after these numbers that would be great too, but don't think they exist, at least for the jeans mark.
Of course any production plate info too, helps immensely.
thanks in advance
