Just some of the best Type 4 VWs in the World

The Langleys' Immaculate 412LS Variant 

Updated 16 Oct 1998

412LS Variant in Texas yellowThis is not a low-mileage pampered car, but a well restored 75,000 miler. The Langley brothers spent hundreds of hours in meticulous preparation of this beauty; no cheque book restoration, this.

Type 4s were never very thick on the ground in the UK, and it is rare to see one in as good condition as this.
