    I have a 1949 VW Sprit window I shipped back to the US back in 1989. I think it’s time to provide it to a new family.
    Please advise if there’s a interest in the Unit. It’s stored and restored.

  2. Should this have read 1949 SPLIT window, as in type 2 Kombi? More info please, including your needs about this vehicle.
