Splitscreen Bus 23 Window Samba Rear Corner Window Inner Skin

Normal Price: £99.50

Reduced to £89.50 until 22/05/21

Are you lucky enough to own an original 23 Window Samba or 15 Window Samba, if so then this repair panel might be of interest.

Designed and developed by BBT in their SWT Program this repair panel is for use to repair the inner window frame of the curved corner windows.

Also found on Brazilian Buses, BBT said that this panel was one of the hardest to produce so far in their vast range of SWT products.  In fact it took no less than 3 versions of the tooling to make this product before they were happy with the quality.

If you fancy yourself a 15 Window or a 23 Window then this panel can also be used to convert your pre 1963 Kombi into a deluxe model.

Sold Separately and can be used on the left or right hand side.

Beetle Crotch Cooler Set – 1951-52

 Normal Price: £744.50

Reduced to £699.50 until 22/05/21

From April 1951 to September 1952, the very last of the Splitwindow Deluxe Beetles were installed with opening external air vents in the front quarter panels.

These Beetles are often referred to as a ‘Crotch Cooler Beetle’.

Splitwindow Beetles were not fitted with front quarter light windows in the doors, instead VW came up with this novel idea of installing vents in the front quarter panels.  Once open fresh air could enter the Beetle around your lap.  Hence the nick name’ Crotch Cooler’.

Installed on Deluxe, Sedan and Cabrio models for around 18 months.

The kit includes a pair of crotch coolers, springs and seals.

Quality: Top Quality
