1967 VW Kastenwagen Gasser

Recommended Posts


This is my latest version of 1967 VW Kastenwagen ( = Van ).

Built as a sixties- style gasser it has a modified Corvair engine from AMT parts pak.

Paint is from Tamiya, decals are from various Revell kits.

I modified interior with revell seats and console.

Axles are VW original but raised with schratchbuilt and revell parts.

Comments are always welcomed!

Oh, and of course it has local ( Finnish ) licence plates and 80- sticker which means it only is allowed to drive 80 km /h on street ( this one really is NOT street legal here in finland. )

To keep it more on a suicide- style I also removed front brakes.

Tyres are from modelhaus with chrome wheels from Revell 60 Chevy Street Fighter 2.

 that is a whole lot of weight on some mighty small wheels and tires. 

Actually those wheels and tires in front are about the same size than original ones that came with the kit. At rear those wheels and tyres are bigger than original in widht and height.

I also think that this gasser is built as light as possible.

Thank you all of your nice comments.

This model was really fun to plan and build.

One does not always have to make the most obvious choices for starting point for a gasser.

Thinking a bit out of the box keeps things more interesting.
