VW Derby
« on: January 27, 2021, 07:53:32 am »
Morning Guys
I have just joined as have just purchased the Yellow Derby and have started working on the restoration on it and was wondering if anyone knows if there are any other Derby's in NZ? Also if anyone has any Mk1 Polo parts?

Thanks
Steve

Must be a few around but must confess as to never seeing one. Does it share parts/platform with any other models?

Yea it shares the same platform as the Mk1 Polo and as far as i can see it could be the only one in the country as it was a private import back in 1982. it has been around some of the VW Nats as i found a pic of the car in the New Plymouth Nats in 2006.

It will be a good looking car hopefully when I'm done with it :)
