For sale a 1973 VW Aircooled Beetle 1303s 1600cc engine.
It is currently insured and used on the road, TAX is historic so free and it does not require an MOT due to its age.
I have fitted 2 new front disc calipers, new break pads, a new battery, quick shift kit, steering damper, the alloy wheels have been refurbished and the tyres have a good tread depth left on them all round. The engine has been totally rebuilt with new crankshaft, camshaft Engle 110, 1600 barrels-pistons, cylinder heads, conrods, high flow oil pump, lightened flywheel, electronic ignition, remote oil filter, electric fuel pump. Twin Weber ICT 34 carburretors one new one used with new inlet manifolds, air filters and throttle linkage, new wrapped big bore 4 branch extractor header into an EMPI exhaust silencer. Less than 2000 miles since engine rebuild. Receipts for all parts purchased (1200 not including the original car purchase cost). The engine is strong pulls well and it holds its own on the motorway. All of that being said it has been welded and will need more welding in the future, it is 47 years old now. This would be a good rolling restoration or ready for a full resto. There are less and less on the road now but there is a good VW scene and all of the parts are still available in the UK. Selling now as it is not getting used much and it is blocking the access to me garage, so looking for a good home with a person who will appreciate this old classic.
