Spookie’s restoration

After the iconic split screen had been produced for more than a decade, VW introduced the “Bay window” in 1968. Special Patrol Group member Mike carefully restored Spookie the 1972 crossover Bay over 20 years ago and carefully documented each section of the rebuild.

Hand drawn specific details have proved very useful to amateur restorers ever since and the film based photographs are there for posterity.

Mike owned and ran Spookie for 18 years with no issues during that time before selling him a few years ago. A great story of rebuilding when parts were scarce and documentation was minimal and an inspiration to us all. Anyone know the current owner?
