PostSubject: 67' Super mint OG ozzy bug   Sat Jun 23, 2007 8:48 pm

At last i have given the bug that she has wanted and been waiting for!
It has taken a while to get one, but i am well happy with it!!
Since we started looking for a new bug i fell in love with the '60's style. From that point on it was '60's or nothing! (expensive taste!!!!)
So heres the stats:

Its 1967, 1285cc and fully original!
Only done 54187 miles!!!!!!!!!
Its oringal paint colour is savannah beige and that is what is still on it but ratty!!!!!!!
Has never been welded, painted or messed around with!
I have got the original service book with all the stamps and dates of service.
It states the first owners name and address. It is from Canberra ACT from the Gregg Cusac garage LTD who were official VW agents in the area.
It also comes with the maintainence book on how everything works!!

So you wanna see some pics????????

Before it came home!






Have you ever seen original floors and heater channels like this???
















Ive droped it, put on 145 up front and 225 on the rear, fitted a 1600 lump with twin 36 webbers, and turbo trip exhaust and merged pipes,
Put on a few bits of bling and given the brakes a full overhaul.
Gotta get a amp and speakers in her soon as we are gonna run an ipod setup for the tunes!
Should be up and ready and road worthy soon...

I met the bloke who owns the yard in oz, callednick, he is over here with staying with Southwest splitz at the moment so took the bug over for him to see.

Last piccy of the bug at a show this year:


On our way down to jambo in august, i pressed on the brake pedal and had nothing. Blew the master cylinder, so its been off the road since i A Framed it home from there..

So its now time to fix the bits ive wanted to for ages.

After much talk ive got my 1914 motor ready to go in!
Gonna send the tinware off for shot blasting and powder coated.

Got the Disk kit for the front,along with some dropped spindles,
Also got a new set of running boards and a porsche dual circuit master cylinder for added stopping power. (cheers scoops)

Its all gonna be done in the next couple of weeks so its ready for a crimbo cruise or 2 Smile

Well been doing the bug slowly as the weathers so crap, but got the master porsche 944 master cylinder i got from scoops bolted in place and modifyed to fit, bolted on a CB disk and dropped spindles kit http://www.cbperformance.com/catalog.asp?ProductID=1140
narrowed the beam, got all my steering rods shortened, bled the system, turned the steering and as the flex hose was a bit short it caught the steering arm and tore it Evil or Very Mad So i now gotta get some new hoses custom made as i cant find any stock ones long enough.

Have got pic's but they are stuck on my phone and ive lost my bluetooth dongle so cant get them off lol!

Should be done by the weekend with a bit of luck!

Get down HEL on the Tedburn road (old A30) and ask them to make up the hoses to the length you need. Good lads down there and they'll see you right.
