the latest project (VW content)

here is my latest project, 1973 VW type 3 fastback, car body, and interior wise is about 95% original, the previous owner just put in a 1700cc stroker motor, and a freeway flier trans axle... its got some body issues that need to be addressed, but there is no way in hell i got hurt on this deal with all the hidden goodies in it, and the kicker, it still has the original 1973 owners manual, license plates, and frames from the dealership it was purchased from

Looks like an overall pretty solid and clean Vdub. Not many of those built up either...so it'll be cool at the local Bug-in's. Pretty freakin' awesome the motor has been gone through. Even though those engines are a cake walk to work on and build, it's great you found one with work already done to it.


So...what are the plans for the ride??



BTW....saw a Volksrod today in Gresham. soooooo effin' sweet!
