If you need any info, give me a shout
I used to drag race these and ran 14.02secs!!! (10 years ago),still far fast by todays standard.
No point in repairing the wings as they bolt off with 13mm nuts and wings are only £20 each.
(make sure you order with elephant light fitment)
Those wheels are GT rims, they look good when refurbed and take upto 195 tyres on the rear,and I would go with 185x55 fronts.
Lowered front springs are cheap,coilovers are available but still pricey.
the 1303s is the best model to make into a German looker.> Phat porsche rims,low,perspex windows and bucket seats.
Basic engine mods are cheap.
An after market exhaust (£80),009 distributor (£45),and a 2nd hand Weber twin barrel carb (£80)
Will change the performance alot.
As the engine is over the rear wheels, traction is superb for straight line acceleration.
AND BEFORE someone says a porsche engine fits straight in --- IT DOESNT. 4cyl vw - 6cyl porsche ,do the maths.
I still go all the Vw shows and can collect parts if need be.
(ps Ive owned about over 35 beetles!!) then campers and everyother vw inbetween.
What did you give for it??? Was it local?
