Post 1981 Yellow and Black Charleston
Yesterday I purchased a yellow and black 1981 Charleston X Reg. Would anybody know approximately how many in these colours still exist. Any info would be most helpful as this model is new to me.

Regards
Allan

I'm not by any standards an authority on those but the yellow and black Charleston was the rarest colour combo, and an X reg one would be quite rare in itself I imagine, as it was around that time that disk brakes were introduced. Is it in it's original colour scheme? I thought the early ones were maroon and black?

Alan it would be worth joining 2CVGB there is registers of all the vehicles and as such the registrar of each type of car is most knowledgable

http://2cvgb.co.uk/forum/index.php

ive heard the figure of 150 regards yellow and black ones for the uk market

O-N yes it was one of the first disk models the esrliest maroon and black were square light drummers

its going to be a good project that one
and it was on here but nobody took any heed of it!

Hi,

Yellow and Black Charlestons were not very popular when brought on the market in autumn 1981. Most of them were sold in the UK and Germany, I think because these are the countries where most of the surviving cars are still to be found.
I don't know about any real numbers (it was not a limited series) but in the Netherlands there were only 27 cars sold until the arrival of the grey version in 1983. Nowadays there are more (bad) copies than original cars...

I have a 1982 one that was manufactured in Feb 1982 (ORGA 1925).

Yellow and black are my favourite charleston colour scheme. And then the maroon and black, and then the one i ended up with!
