A Rubber Nose Bonnet badge seal - Karmann Ghia 1962-1974 for part no 141853601B.
New Old Stock (NOS)
New original items produced by Volkswagen and old shelf stock often hard to find trim parts etc that are hard to obtain and no longer produced other than reproductions ( the holy grail and sometimes expensive but the best of the best)
Original Equipment Supplier (OE) or german quality
Produced by the original supplier of the parts to Volkswagen such as Bosch or Hella, not NOS as still produced but the best option for items still prioduced.
Items no longer available that are reproduced elseware, mostly these days Reproduction items are of a decent quality but there are still some parts that are of a lesser than original quality if in doubt ask...
we also carry many used and restored or unrestored items for customers requiring original parts that are not available or NOS is too expensive or even the reproduction quality is poor. Also some customers restoring "patina cars" may prefer used as new parts on this kind of build stand out like a sore thumb!
