1963 Beetle

Post by Attorney Isaiah Loophole on Wed Sep 08, 2010 9:17 pm

If you have read the other thread the you know that I traded my vert for dads car and some wheels. I then traded the rumble seats shell for Alex's 63 shell. This is when Alex swapped pans for the vert.

After swapping the roadster and this body along with a little reassembly I had a running driving car again.


Then after swapping the rear drums back for five luggers and good hot bath and waxing I got this. (the pics are from my phone and it was getting dark.....hope to get some better ones within a few days)

I dont know what do you want for it?

Between yesterday and today I have adjusted the valves, changed the oil, installed...removed.....redrilled and reinstalled the rear bumper still doesn't clear the decklid.... Also washed it, hooked up the turn signals, and installed the rest of the lugs that Ashley bought for me yesterday.

Just the buckets after I get the other beam and put the drop spindles on it should only have minor rubbing on the inside during sharp turns
