1967 Body, on an IRS pan, Resto-Custom

Thursday, 27-Jul-2000 09:21:29 writes:

Body off restoration, sliding ragtop added, polished 8 spokes, lowered. This car was intended to be a weekend only show car, but I had too much fun driving it, so I made it my daily driver for about 2 years (with a basically stock motor, and dual 34 Webers). BTW, I added A/C to it as well. Major body/chassis work included floor pan replacement, front bulkhead replacement, tons of rust cut out and replaced with donor steel, and full chemical strip down to the metal.

About 6 months ago, I installed my mostly Berg 2.0 liter. 78 x 90.5, Berg P&P 40x37.5 heads, engle 120 cam, 1.25 rockers, IDF 44's, 1 5/8" merged exhaust.

Motor is currently out, getting higher compression (from 6.88:1 to 8.0 to 1), and a Porsche 911 fan conversion.

spec's are very similar: '67 body (very solid), IRS pan with new pan halves, original VW sliding sunroof grafted in, slightly lowered, but stock steel wheels and full bumpers for near-stock appearance. Rabbit GTI sport seats covered with '67-style vinyl. It'll be about a year until the "shell" is done. Engine? 2110 with 40x35 heads, Dell'Orto 45's, probably a 120 cam as well. The engine I'll build. Car's purpose? Stock-appearing '67 with updated handling and "surprising" performance, plus long-distance (i.e. NY to Michigan) cruising capabilities at higher speeds (sustained 80+ mph). Your car will be exciting with your new engine!

67 Type I on the way to becoming a Custom German Looker. Currently having new pans installed and rust repairs done. When finished it will go to body show to have a set of Porsche 993 headlights installed in early fenders, custom flush taillights, custom bumpers fabricated, door handle removed, etc. Color has not been decided but leaning towards Black with subtle silver/yellow graphics. It currently has:

* 18" x 8" & 9.5" Porsche Turbo replica wheels

* Toyo 225/35 and 255/35 tires

* Ghia front & Porsche 914 rear disc brakes

* Transform superpro 5 speed tranny(swingaxle)

* Carbon fiber look dash panels and console

* 11 VDO guages and Momo wheel

* 2"narrow RLR adjustable beam Jatech spindles

* front sway bar & rear camber compensator

* steel fenders that are 1" wider but look totally stock

* current engine is an 1835 with 044s and 45 dels

Im in the process of installing a set of Porsche 996 monoblock 4-piston calipers and 318mm x-drilled rotors on modified CB Perf dropped spindles. Master cylinder will be from a Porsche 944. I am almost ready to close the block on a 2332cc turbo/intercooled motor that features a Pauter wedgemated crank/13lb flywheel. I have a Porsche 911 style fan shroud and will install a Setrab oil cooler above the tranny.

For induction, I will use a SDS EFI system with a 5.0 throttle body and a pair of Competition Engineering EFI intakes. Package tray will be removed for installation of T04/03 turbo and intercooler.

Others items on list include 4-pt. rollcage, 5-pt. race harness, Cobra or Sparco race seats, 3-piece 18" alloys, and removal of springplates, conversion to IRS with coilover shock suspension. Car will be shown the 1st year and driven on weekends.

Last pixs of car before I started on this project can be seen in the Readers Ride section of the Dec93 issue of VW Trends. The Red VW with the 16" Porsche C2 alloys.

'64 Ghia Cabrio, '77 std. Beetle, '52 Beetle

All my cars are weekend fun cars. The '77 Beetle could be a regular driver but I have other water-cooleds for that. I'm in southern NY (not far from Don Jiskra) about 1/2 hour NW of NYC. VWs are my hobby (no business).

'64 Ghia cabrio: on '70 IRS pan. BMW 325es sport seats (look like Recaros), Porsche 914 5 1/2" steel wheels; car not lowered. 1641 engine, Berg CW crank, Berg 296 cam, Dell'Orto 36's; mild reworked stock-valve heads. Car can do 90 all day; drove it to Michigan twice.

'77 Beetle: lime green metallic, lowered, stock big bumpers but Porsche 914/Sport Bug rims; Ghia discs; type3 drums; swaybars F&R- handles like a slot car. 1600 stock-internal "STF" engine with Weber 40 IDFs (28mm venturies; 110 mains; 50 idles and Berg linkage- runs incredibly smooth); 1.25:1 rockers. I'm building a mild 2-liter for it. Also drove it to Michigan twice. Car is pictured (November?) in current 2000 VW Beetle calender (the one with blue 63? on cover).

'52 Beetle: on '74 IRS pan; slightly lowered; stock steel rims. Black paint is rough but rust work done. Yep, it's also in same calender (June) - the evening lighting made the car look better than it is! Engine is a stock 1600 with Kadrons and 1.25:1 rockers; a 2-liter (using Kadrons again) is planned. It's broken down a bunch of times so I drive it only in neighboring states.

We sure got lots of responses to your inquiry!

"Old School" Cal Look Spec's

Friday, 28-Jul-2000 01:50:06 writes:

Greg, You posed an interesting question.

Thanks "Mate" for responding to my previous requests for help and information. "Our car" is a family project. It is actually my son's car, (Troy Palmer, AKA Empijones). His car stays with me here in Orange County, California. Troy lives 1800 miles east of here, in Chicago, Illinois. Since his company has headquarters here, he is out here often. Troy has collected old vintage VW speed equipment for over ten years. Mostly Orig. Empi parts and BRM wheels. We sold our '55 Barndoor deluxe Bus and restored '66 convertable Mustang GT to make room for this latest project. He just had to have something to hang his vintage VW parts collection on.

You can see his car, as it appeared last year, on Cal Look.Com with his engine under construction. This year we installed a RLR 2" narrowed adjustable front beam with CB dropped spindles, a New Rancho close ratio 4.12 transmission, and a New Dave Rhoads built 2110cc IDA motor. We also installed new upolstery and door panels. We have tried to stay with a "old school" theme using many "new old stock" items rather than the latest "Trick Parts". It is a weekend cruiser and sees about 1500 miles per year, mostly during "The VW Classic Week". Next year maybe it will get painted?

Here's the spec's; 1960 European cloth sunroof bug with semiphore's. Pop out side windows, empi bumper guards, (5) "Real" BRM wheels (oxidizing as we speak), Berg shifter with early Berg T-handle , and a Original Empi wood steering wheel. We run 145 front and 205x70R15 rear radials on the street. Hurst line lock on the front brakes (just for fun). The first and only time we have taken it to the strip we managed only a poor "tire smoking" 14.68 et on the radials. We just got a pair of six inch Firestone slicks but still need some rims to mount them on. We hope to go to Drag Day in Carlsbad this fall with a better tuned car. Our goal is to get into the 13's and 100 MPH.

90.5 x 82 SCAT crank, Eagle H-beam rods, K8 Engle cam, Jeff Denham 40 x 37.5 heads, IDA's with 40 mm venturi's, MSD distributor and 6AL ignition box (7000 limit chip), 1 3/4" Bugpack merged header, Santana full size pulley, "Thing" Dog House shroud with a Berg Type IV cooler, powdercoated all german engine tin. We have a custom one quart Moon breather venting the engine case and vintage GT Empi valve covers. Berg supplied the traction bar, trans mounts, and deep oil sump.

Good luck with you project. Hope to see you at the VW Classic next year.

'66 Beetle, solid New Mexico Car, daily driver for the past 2 years. Bought with 180,000 miles, rebuilt 40 horse and an old yellow respray.

In the past 2 years of daily driving (14,000 miles per year)...

Owner rebuilt 1600cc D/P with 009, 1 3/8 extractor, jetted 34PICT-3 and 2.5" Turbo muffler. 12V conversion with AL82X alternator. Adjustable beam, Sway Away front sway bar and rear camper compensator, new stock shocks, new front brakes, new rear shoes, etc. A few months back cosmetics were improved with shaved front turn signals, T-bars, complete primer job, and 15x4.5 front and 15x5.5 chromies with 145's and 195/65's respectively. Can be seen on under the Michigan Vintage Volkswagen Show.

Future plans call for a 1904cc engine with a DMS 74mm crank, Rimco stroker rods, and 90.5 "A's". Engle 120 cam bumping 40x35.5's 042 heads. 40 IDF's (Dare I say), 1.5 Berg merged with 2.5" FLOW-Master! Much more, still planning the engine & transaxle. Also Euro BRM's with 205/70's out back. 2" narrowed beam up front with the 145's. So Cal discs in front (when they get them), Type 3 drums out back. Berg traction bar, shifter, etc. Maybe paint, Artic White with a brick red interior.

'66 MicroBus, another solid New Mexico VW, although there is some rocker rust. Original Blue and white paint and plenty 'O dents. All new brakes, all maintenance done to front axle and transaxle. 40 Horse engine (from the '63 Beetle), 30 PICT-1, 009, All stock and tuned up. Ready to take over daily driving chores once I'm moved into my new house.

Future plans are new tires and a 1600 Single Port which is almost done, but I'm getting the itch for something bigger along with a 3.88 R&P!

I'm from the Youngstown, OH area (almost right between Cleveland and Pittsburgh) and I am the President of the Tri-State VW Club (OH, PA, WV). If you want details about the club or want to discuss VW's feel free to drop me some email...

my car is a 68 bug .it is painted in the original factory colour Zenith Blue L639(08). the rims are still in original colour but fitted with 145 michelins in front and 185 at the rear. it is lowered at the front. the motor is a stock 1600 with 36 DRLAs , Berg linkage, Berg full flow with SYSTEM 1, Berg 1 1/2 quart oil sump, Berg 26mm oil pump, Berg breather 009 with pertronix IGNITOR and a turbo muffler setup. I drive everyday to college. tranny is a stock 1600 with 3.88 r/p. i only added a Berg front mount and also a Berg traction bar.

For the interior i have a Berg shifter and a Nardi wheel. no other modifications.

i am still a student and money is low. dad won't pay for any performance parts. But i am saving up for a much hotter stroker motor with IDAs or Injection Setup. Dunno how long will that take.............
