This was a project my Father and I worked on over many years.
The goal was to get it race ready but when I left for Uni there was no time or money to finish it. In hindsight a completed car would have been a better option. I had lots of enjoyment working on and driving this car.
I sold it in 2013 to move on to other goals and adventures, hopefully one day I will be able to race one of these.
The build was based on a 1960’s VW Beetle running 5 stud wheels and a 1641 cc single port motor. The motor ran a dual throat Webber carburetor but this was replaced with a PICT-3 to comply with the ORANZ rule book for Class C off-road racing. NZKW fixed bucket seat, external oil cooler and built from the ground up by my Father and I.
