300HP+ 1959 Turbo Beetle   Price: $22000 (usd)
I've reluctantly decided to sell my one of a kind '59 Turbo Beetle. The car has had a recent restoration at an accredited shop. The Engine was Built by Chico at SteelBugin. It is a 2165cc T3T4 Turbo with a water to air intercooler. It has the CB performance fuel injection setup (V3) with integrated spark. I Have the dyno sheet to prove this engine made 300HP before the intercooler was added, with the intercooler it should produce approx 330HP. The transmission is a fully built close ratio setup with welded first and second gear with a heavy duty differential. The front beem has been narrowed 5 inches and is adjustable. The car has 30mm swayaway torsion bars in the rear to keep it from squatting to badly under power. The firewall has been pushed forward to allow for a radiator (for the water to air intercooler) and an ice box. It has Airkewld Bad series brakes on all four corners with wilwood calipers up front. It has Auto Meter Sport Comp gauges ( RPM, Boost, Oil Pressure, Oil Temp) mounted with custom Billet aluminum gauge mounts. The seats and headliner are new but the rest of the carpets and door cards are 1959 original. It also comes with a quality roof rack. Please don't hesitate to ask questions.
