We found a wagon for Tim to daily while we fix his yellow car. The guys sister bought the 68 new and somehow kept the window sticker all those years. I'm sure the car is long gone.
I liked Hainz better...... Can we trade back?

Updated the 1st post in the thread - long overdue amalgamation of this content.

Any older 510's out there?

We need more wagons and the early 2drs to get a good idea here.

Technically it's still a car!

Went for a second attempt to find this one this this past weekend - took a couple of hours be we found it. It's DONE! Three of the 4 doors were smashed off - broken at the hinges - every post is bent, front drivers corner stoved in. Car was stripped of all running gear and both cross members complete. Then it was burned before being thrown over a cliff! Not a pretty end. But i did get the serial number....026215

It was a 4dr auto

Thanks for the input, I'll post this up.

Do you have a photo of the car and the van rear seat delete? I'll asume your van had opposing wipers, but which dash did it come with? I'm very curious.
We did not get this model in North America, in fact I believe the VPL510 was a northern European offering only.

Dash and wipers are same than 1970 sedans, i think that van model came in 1970, it wasn't available earlier.
It is only spare parts car and full of stuff but here is pic from the deleted rear seat.
