“Smiley” – The ’79 Danbury


Name: Smiley

Reg: FWU 595T

Year: 1979

Type: Bay Window

Info: This olive green ’79 Danbury is stunning and boasts the cutest interior! It was purchased in July 2010 and was ran for 6 month with some minor work undertaken on the engine during that time. It was took off road in January 2011 for bodywork repairs in garage and on the drive. The owner says: “After welding up and looking for cheap replacement parts on eBay and shows, I sprayed the outside on the drive and in the front garden, made an interior including the upholstery.  We got it back on road May 2016 and have been to a few events last year. We were really pleased to have won ‘the best Bay’ at Doncaster VW Show in 2016. This year I have rebuilt the engine up to 1641 and have used it for my brother-in-laws wedding last May, any excuse to dress up. Smiley is still not finished… but are they ever? ”
