Ah, no. But it could be a distant cousin to my previous '62 Street/Strip Beetle (in my "garage" pics). Its going to look very similar. :-)

1962 Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle (Ernie)

My next VW project - a 1962 VW Beetle. My plans are to turn this into a street/strip racer similar to what I did to my previous black '62 Beetle.


The parts bin includes a Dave Folts-built Type 1 gearbox (4.25/2.46/1.70/1.31 ratios with a 3.885 R&P), and a host of Cal-Look parts. Wheels will be polished old-school Center Lines. Engine will either be an 84x94 (2332cc) or 86x94 (2387cc) monster with CB Performance Ultra Wedgeports, 51.5 IDA webers, 1 7/8" merged exhaust and much, much more.


Lots to be done...
