Hi jake
Welcome its worth joining the club for all the free advice and the spares scheme as the club has managed to remanufacture some of the more obsolete items that are not on any other cars,and I'm sure you'll soon find the a 40 that you are looking for and then the fun begins no joking aside they draw a lot of attention as they are getting quite scares considering that they were manufactured in the thousands

Yes, hello Jake and thanks for joining us. There are two models across the range; the saloon and the Countryman (the one with the lifting-up rear screen). These are usually the dearer of the two to buy, and the Mark 1 seems to attract more attention than the Mark 2. Good hunting!!

Hello Gang, I am a new member to your site, and would like to say Hey . I just bought two 1961 A 40,s , They are very rare here in Canada and I found two in the same place ?. I was looking for a a30 or a 35 and found the pair about 200 K from my home, one is a basket case and the other is pretty much rust free.they haven't been on the road since 1988 . I have been into English Fords and Morris Minors for years, I even have a couple vw bugs. hope to chat with you all soon.

Regards Jim Daley

Wot-ho Jim, thanks for finding us! Rest assured you're in fine company and there'll be plenty of advice to see you through the sometimes dark days of restoring an A40 or two ! What are yours - saloon or Countryman models? My own '58 Mk1 saloon is the daily driver (since 1966) alongside the '72 Westfalia Continental conversion and between them they've formed a perfect partnership over many years.

As has been the case since their inception, the Volkswagen commercials have always had the edge over competitors by being just that tad smaller while still retaining plenty of load space. One benefit of course is that they'll fit into most household garages!

Best wishes from another "oldVWguy" !

Keith, aren't your vehicles parked the wrong way around or do you like sliding across to drive? :)

Both engines facing outwards for ease of tinkering. Also, the VW's sliding door faces centre, making access to her interior much easier.
