hello, my name is Matteo and i live in the north of Italy, i recently bought swb 1964 haflinger in very very bad conditions
the old owner try to restore it so he take out any parts from body he sandblast the body and stop everything
the hafli is like that from 10 years and i bought it for a few money !
the body is completely rusted with so many holes...it's impossible to fix it and i will look for a new or good used body
the engine is missing because the old owner put a vw engine so i will try to find a new good engine , but after putting togheter the body and other things!
as for now i'd like to start buying some books that help me to restore the hafly ....in particular i'm looking for a manual to see all the parts because i have the hafly complete disassembled and i need to see from a book where the parts i have are originally mounted ...do you have any idea where to find this manuals on the web ....thanks and sorry for my bad english...hope you can understand

Good morning Matteo -

I am in the UK & may have what you need including an early 700 platform (with no side access panels for the engine) in solid restorable condition.
Please send me a PM if you would like to contact me.

Thanks
Paul

What you are looking for is available here:-

http://www.goatwerks.com/haflingertechstuff.html

You can also buy a new platform, but it will cost a lot of money and even more with the transport from Austria. There are various suppliers of new parts and probably several people who have secondhand parts for sale like the platform you have been offered in the previous post.

Do not worry about the English, it is a lot better than my Italian!

Hi Matteo and welcome to the forum.

It sounds as if you have a major project on your hands.

There are many documents that may be of assistance in the Documents section of this forum viewforum.php?f=21

Good luck and dont be afraid to ask for help when needed - we are a great bunch of people.

Put your town and country in your profile (under User Control Panel - top right corner of the home page) as it helps people understand where you are and importantly people who are nearby may be able to help.

Cheers

Garry

first of all thanks for all the informations to everibody , as for manuals i will give a look in the forum and in the other website ( thanks heinkeljb)
as for my hafli i bought it because the price was really interesting but i now that restoere it is a long long job , but i have plenty of time so for now the problem is to find a good body and to find a good engine , if i find these two spares for reasonable price i will start too restore the Haflinger !

Another small question is about documents , the old owner don't have plates and documents for this hafli , but i think is not a problem .....somewhere i read that if i give my chassis number to Steyr puch they can give me a document to make new plates and documents for my hafly....another solution could be buy an old frame with documents and then put new italian plates on my hafli...do you think the best solution could be the first or the second?
thanks
MAtteo

Contacting Magna Steyr will give you a document detailing the Haflingers original specification when it was built. So you would have written on an official document:
The chassis number,
The model number,
The date is was built,
What specification it had when it was delivered from the factory, e.g. type of tyres. Long hood, short hood etc.

If this is enough for the Italian Authorities to issue you with plates etc, great!

But,

If you need more than that, then getting another Haflinger with plates will be the better solution, but it will probably mean that you use this Haflinger as a "Spare parts" Haflinger.

Hi Matteo,
Welcome to the forum . If you are feeling very wealthy you could contact Paul Kretz at www.puch-haflinger.at , he manufactures new body panels.
The flat bed is 7350.00 euro.

While you might get lucky and find a body by itself I think it is more likely that you will have to buy a stripped down car - however you are just over the alps from genuine Haflinger country so you may get lucky.

Good luck with the search.

Garry

Hi Garry,
when i bought this haflinger i knew that restore it could be very hard and expensive , so i decided to to this way:
- find a good used platform
- if i find the platform i will look for a good engine
after this i can start to restore the hafli and at the end of the restoring job i will take care about documents !
now i will give a look around to find a platform , i already wrote a PM to Herrflinger for the platform he wanted to sell and i will wait his reply
i will let you know the news of this project :D

Hi Matteo - how badly rusted is that body? I've seen some incredible restorations done to badly rusted out sheet metal, it might well be less expensive and work just as well to do some fabrication work.

With a new platform, the truck will not be original anyway.

IAC, good luck with the project, I'm interested to see how it progresses. I'd also like to see some pictures of that rusty project!
