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 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 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.
