ICHIMURA VW 1500 NOTCHBACK USA ROUTE 66 SOUVENIR

I picked up this ICHIMURA 1500 VW Notchback about seven years ago (2011) and it was a real beater VW toy, so rusty, dented and in need of repair. I did not take any original photos of it back then. I took it apart, straighten out the body and chassis and had them sandblasted. The project sat for so many years in a plastic bag as other projects always came before it. I decided to send it through the Restor-Version Shop last week (May 2018). A new body paint scheme, decals and all the small metal parts were cleaned and polished. Check out the photos ! It has a VW L202 Coral Red and  L201 Ivory paint scheme. I envisioned it as a USA Route 66, Kingman AZ – 1965 local souvenir store VW toy !! So there you have it . . . . .
