Does anyone know why there were about eight Bristols of varying ages parked at the roadside this afternoon on Old Church Street, Chelsea? It can't be mere coincidence...

Two weeks ago when I go to  my mechanic with my Audi Coupé Gt for the anual MOT and overhaul, I spotted there a  south african built VW type 1, undergoing a major mechanical overhaul. This car have all the south african specs (much more than the rhd...) and is a friend of mine recent purchase. He enjoy such different bug and plans to use it in small trips around town along with his NSU CL....

Its a76 model, with indicator lights on the front bumper and sealed beem lights as the post-74 german Type 1, but with five stud wheels and pré baljoints front suspencion as the pré-68 german cars...

 

Rhd with specific steering wheel, even if similar to the post 74 german models and also specific trim....

 

And the african way to adapt 1303 rear lights on 1200 rear fender. Close to the front we can see the five stud pré-67 wheel...

The five stud drums and the pré ball-joint suspension have also south africam specs and didn't match with the germans parts,. Thats a problem when they need new parts.
