A couple of Pics of 1951 Split that showed up at the Abilene Aircooled Cruise on Sat night....
51 Split Original Interior
Hand Cranking/Starting the original engine
Checking Fuel the old fashioned way with original gauge!
This 1951 Split was purchased in Belgium in 1951 by US Service member stationed in Germany. It was subsequently imported to the States. This car is 100% original. It even has the original Metzeler tires on it! The current owner who happens to be a retired Geologist hand cranked & started the engine for us. That engine purs....... Definitely one sweet ride.
