(1) 1970 Volkswagen Beetle / Semi-Custom was Award winner needs TLC... I'VE BEEN DRIVING THIS CAR FOR 14 YEARS & JUST TOOK HER OFF THE ROAD TO PUT UP FOR SALE... WHEN I PURCHASED HER IN 2006 I WENT THRU THE WHOLE CAR & HAVE ABOUT $8,000.00 INVESTED IN HER... HERE IS WHAT I DID TO THE CAR : I REBUILT THE AE 1973 1776cc GEX ENGINE, RINGS, BEARINGS & SEALS, WITH ABOUT 60,000 MILES ON IT... THE CAR RUNS LIKE A TOP, BUT IS CURRENTLY LEAKING OIL... IT HAS BIG HEAD VALVES, BALANCED CRANK, MILD CAM, 90mm PISTONS, COMPETITION RACING EXHAUST, SWIVEL ROCKERS, PROGESSIVE WEBER 2 BARREL CARBURATOR, BOSH COIL, 009 DISTRIBUTOR, HIGH VOLUME OIL PUMP & OIL BREATHER SYSTEM... 1973 TRANSMISSION WITH A TALLER 4th GEAR TO BRING DOWN THE RPM's, WHICH CAME OUT OF A CAR WITH ABOUT 150,000 MILES & EMPI QUICK SPEED SHIFTER... CLUTCH SLIPS WHEN HEAVEY ON THE PEDAL... I HAVE HAD THE CAR UP TO 90 MPH... REAR TIRES ARE DUNLAP 205/70 X 15", WHICH BRINGS THE RPM's DOWN TO 3,000 RPM's AT 70 MPH... FRONT BEAM IS OUT OF A 1978 BEETLE, WHICH I REPLACED THE BALL JOINTS, TIE RODS, STEERING BOX, LOWER 2 1/2 FORGE SPINDLES... PASSENGER SIDE LOWER BALL JOINT NEED TO BE REPLACED, BUT STILL DRIVES STRAIGHT WITH NO ISSUES... KYB GAS SHOCKS IN FRONT & REAR... IT HAS DISC BRAKES IN THE FRONT, WITH STAILESS STEEL BRAKE LINES & DRUM BRAKES IN THE REAR... FRONT TIRES ARE CONTINENTAL 175/65 X 15", WHICH I WENT ON TIRE RACK WEBSITE TO CALULATE TIRE ROTATION & SPEEDO READS TRUE DUE TO SPEEDO CABLE READS FROM DRIVERSIDE FRONT TIRE... FLOOR PAN IS SOLID, BUT WHERE BATTERY SITS, PAN HAS BEEN REPAIRED WITH INSERT PAN... INTERIOR HAS BEEN REPLACED, HEADLINER, DOOR PANELS, CARPET KIT, DASH, NRG RACING SEATS, WINK REAR VIEW MIRROR, SUN PRO RPM TACH & A GRANT 13" FOMULA RACING STEERING WHEEL... REAR SEAT HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH A CARPET SPEAKER WALL... IT HAS A JVC RADIO/CD PLAYER WITH WIRELESS REMOTE CONTROL, SMALL SPEAKER BOXES IN FRONT, 8" SPEAKERS WITH TWEETERS, 15" SUB SPEAKERS IN THE REAR & 100 WATT SONY AMP... WHALE TAIL WORKS WHEN DOING HIGHWAY SPEEDS, WITH THE WHALE TAIL & LOWER FRONT END IT STICKS TO THE GROUND... BODY IS SOLID, BUT HAS SOME RUST ISSUES... I CAN SEND YOU MORE PICTURES IF YOU WANT...
