Well impressed!

I watch Fantom Works on TV as I like to see how it's done.

A British programme called Wheeler Dealers who do similar restorations (but not frame up) did a "Bullitt Mustang."

Our youngest son imported to the UK, "Ruby" a 1967 "splitty" from Utah, in 2008. So no rust, but it had reclining seats (you can see them in the first photo) and louvred windows, so he got shot of those, found replacement windows, restored the bulkheads and found a set of original seats.


With the help of his partner's brother-in-law who has a body shop. He did a "frame up" restoration, i.e. right down to having the body shell stripped and re-painted. (She made the curtains on her sewing machine).

All leather, memory foam padded upholstery, made by a VW specialist.
He did all the rest of the interior including the woodwork

Since then, they've been all over Europe in it, even Switzerland.

I admit I had to look the ZT up! Was yours the wagon? Those have a nice, sophisticated look.
The front end somewhat reminds me of the MG Rover V8 they modeled off the MGB lines-they can now be brought into the states and they are a sweet looking 2 seat roadster!
Ours was a V6 petrol salon only used now and again and for my hubby to attend shows and meets...we had the black leather bucket seats in ours and the speed is great....we have our landy 2 which is the main motor :)

It was 17yrs old when it went off our drive and in the same condition as on the pic...my hubby is red hot on keeping them right ;)
