I Have A Restored and Rechromed HARRY HILL VW  West Covina Calif. It is Dated on the Back 1954 Perfect Condition, I was looking at some Frames on Samba For Sale  some people want a lot of $$ for the Frames and there not that old?? I dont know what mine would be worth I have had  two Guys ask Me for Years if I Wanted to get Rid of It  But I Just Keep Hanging on to it  I guess the Main Reason Is I Bought Two Cars From Them in the 80's of course the Newer Frames are way Different then the old one... any Ideas on what it would be Worth??

Harry Hill VW Would be perfect for me.

Regards,
Harry

Years ago, I had a job at James Brown Motoring Accessories.  We sold loads of license frames..."Save a Tree Eat a Beaver" "Every Fireman Loves a Quickie" "Polish Mercedes" and so on, but the "Gas Grass or Ass" frame outsold 'em all!  I never had one on any of my cars though it was on the back of the sandrail trailer for twenty years  Roll Eyes Wink  The pic is me in my "youth" with my friend Grub's Ghia (sorry, I may have posted this before) with the GGA frame displayed proudly out back.

Here is my frame for the collection. Meltebeke Volkswagen was my local dealer way back when. And perhaps the only VW dealer in southern California that Sarge didn't work for.... Frenchy gave me this one, but I found the front frame at Drag Day for $20, and since found a new home on my truck (a non VW I might add). I often get thumbs up when people see the plate and frame.

And Keith, about the Haneline frame.... you know it had to happen sooner or later.

that's the one that I want.  My step dad threw mine out in the 90's 2 of them) it was displayed with my first cars license plate.  The frame had a porsche emblem along with the vw emblem.  My parents bought all their cars there through the 70's.

My folks bought a new red '65 beetle from Meltebeke.  I remember my dad driving my two sisters, mom and I up to San Francisco on vacation that year...the last "family" vacation was a cramped one Angry Tongue Roll Eyes

I worked for Green Motors in Norwalk in the late 70's and would love to find an old frame.
