The Wheels and tires are a classic favorite "Fuchs" Porsche alloys.
Out back is a strong running, port engine with a few add ons. It is
a bit of a sleeper actually, as what appears to be a simple 1600,
is really a 2007cc performance engine. This crazy combination is
the work of the masters at Old Speed in California. Proper jetting
in a single carb can easily give the big engine what it needs
without bolting on gas guzzling Webers that need fiddling with all
the time. Behind the engine is a built Bus gearbox, the exhaust is
a Tri-Mill Bobtail setup and an IRS rear suspension...another
conversion by Old Speed, that is an incredible upgrade. Along with
the IRS conversion, the wheels stay properly upright, rather than
tucked in when lowered like a swing axle car. It Keeps the rubber
on the road where it needs to be and is set up for excellent
clearance at the fender. Rear ride height on this Beetle is
adjustable with high end Fox air shocks. Top is from Chucks
Convertible Parts the frame has been fully restored and all rubber
seals are freshly tucked in nice and neat. This was a full, body
off restoration...look at how clean that floorpan is! Front
suspension has a narrowed beam and Fox air shocks. Dual stage
master cylinder feeds the disc brakes up front and the stock drums
out back. The Disc brakes and drop spindles Beam is adjustable in
the center as well. This VW looks great with a fun and classy
approach to the modifications and the performance and handling
upgrades are also well done and a very unique approach. To view
