1955/6 Swedish VW Beetle (Oval window model).
Mostly original paint.
Photographs of prepared/painted rolling chassis. No underseal, no corrosion. 
Currently running: 
1776cc engine with genuine (European) twin Weber 40s. All brand new quality parts bought and built by Daz Chandler of Aircooled Performance. (Build sheet available.)
Brand new heavy-duty Rancho gearbox.
Gene Berg shifter. 
Adjustable front axle.
12 Volt conversion. Painstaking wiring revision (all joints crimped and soldered and covered in heat shrink).
Working 12v semaphores, backed up by Led lights/incorporated indicators in rear... wiring in place for front indicators if wanted.
Autometer Sportcomp tachometer with adjustable shift light, mounted via a Californian-made Fastfab mount.
BBT GT Sprintstars.
Disc front brakes. 
The car also comes with: 
Original 1200 engine. (The engine was in the car when I bought it 2012, and saw the car through it’s MOT.)
Original gear box. (As above.) And original gear stick. 
Original front axle.
Original Swedish rear wings with gravel guards (currently running accurate fibreglass reproductions, since I didn’t want to drill any holes for lights in the originals).
Original gear lever.
(It still has the original glass water bottle for the windscreen wash system... quite rare now I’m told.) 

Contact me for:
Very detailed list of things that need doing to tidy it up. (There’s really not much.)
Link to large file of photographs showing close-ups of all panel joins and areas where you’d normally find corrosion. Plus photos of original parts to be supplied with the car.
Link to video of car running.

Original engine build sheet.
