Doris is a 1973 left hand drive VW panel van that we had imported from Nevada, USA. It is estimated that before it was imported into the UK, especially for us, it had not been driven for over 25 years.
We had to contact the Volkswagen Museum in Wolfsburg, Germany to have the van dated. They confirmed that it rolled off the production line on the 12th of February 1973 and even provided us with a copy of her birth certificate!!
