This baby was just released from North West Connection Rods and it sounds great through the 1 5/8in sidewinder.

New pistons and rebuilt heads. High ratio rockers. The engine is set at 9.5 to 1. 130 cam.
Also, just rebuilt 44 IDF Webers carbs. They were rebuilt twice and put on a fuel spectrum analyzer for the best jetting set up.

The fuel tank was Boiled clean, then relined and sealed from a radiator company. I also rebuilt the petcock with a kit from WW.
I also kicked down for a brand new re-manufactured convertible deck lid for better ventilation. All with fresh paint on it. The color is metallic Bay Grey from the Smart Car line.
This is a true collector. Come on. It’s a 1957 Volkswagen Bug with the rag top.
And Yes! It also has a new paint job too! Bay Grey metallic.
I have a folder with receipts.$6000.00 just recently. For real.
So that’s about a $5000.00 engine to start with. Then another $3500.00 just dumped into it to make it run great.
Sorry, maybe you just want a regular old slow lane 1500cc.
My bad. Keep looking then.
I really don’t want to sell her but I need the cash so no trades.
