our Bulli

We bought our Bulli after 27 years and 9,000 kms of service in the Mannheim United Glassworks Factory fire brigade.
We have the original service booklet for the Bulli; half the service coupons were still unused.
Below are photos showing its current condition.
Mouse-over for captions.

It was time to disassemble the engine and gear box
and put in all new gaskets.
