WARNING! this is not a thread for reference pics, it is a 1:1 project.



so for the past year and a half i have been restoring/customizing an old VW. most people wouldn't care about these cars. as most seem to go for the popular choices such as mustangs, vettes, cameros. i went for a '61 VW type 1. i bought it for $700 and since then have put almost $4,000 into it. most of that went into engine, tranny, brakes, and now the roof.now on with the lastest pics.........

well almost lastest (roof now in primer)


all new 1776cc engine with countless mods done to it.

Looks like a great fun project 8)

I'd like to do the same w/a singlecab. Old VW's have always been cool; even when they were new.

Speaking of singlecabs, my manager has a red '62 with a Porsche 356 engine..sweet truck. (he has an eclectic group of cars besides the truck-- a '95 Tahoe 2dr, '07 Saab 9-3 wagon, a New Beetle Diesel, and an '06 Corvette Z06).
