A VW being 'mounted' by a Ford Transit????

Thats a new one on me!!!!!!!!!!!

Dont think it is one of Hobby's creations though.........

Looks well 'grafted' and put together though - Swedish?

i don't think it's a transit on the back, too many things are wrong if you look up close

I'd bet my granny that that is a modified / cut down MKI Tranny back end dropped onto the VW floor-pan........ The swage lines along the side leading to vertical taillights (indicator over reflector over tail-brake). The side hinged opening outward swing door (clearly left hooker) is also classic tranny shape - modded with a panel with window let in...

Post some more photos around it (back, other side, interior...)

Certainly seems a well built homebuilt........but very, very doubtful that it is a Hobby.

(Better let me granny know that she may be moving families!!!!!!!)

it's the roof curve/line and metal pressings for windows dont look like a tranny, the actual sides do as does the hinged door, the rear lights are vw units
the other pics i have are tiny, i'll get some more when i pick it up next week
