hiya all.
I have just brought a resto for my wife but would love finding out more about the bug I have just brought.
I know the registration and that its a 1974 1300 its yellow Without an engine and in bad shape, that's about where it ends.
Are there any numbers on the vehicle I could find that may help give me some more info. And where do I search online
I thankyou all in advance and hope forums are what people say.
Stay safe.

I have a manual on its way 👍, I'm looking for original parts or best available new parts (floor pans etc) that actually fit and want to make sure the correct parts go on the car regards correct shape and year etc. Would be nice to just have more info on the bug .
