very cool!

is it a south african only bug?
1303 screen,normal 70's front end and king and link pin beam
Ta!! :)

Nope its a german built 1303s.
Due to huge!!!! amounts of rot and lack of panels years ago I replaced the whole front end with a new frame head and torsion beam etc etc. The flip front making it easier to match up and get the look right for the changes. :) easier than making wings and a bonnet specially to fit. :)
