1973 Bug Sedan   Price: 5200
1973 VW Standard Beetle. Very good condition, pans are dry/solid, rebuilt brakes, Type 1 motor was built by Tom Bruch , The motor is an 1835 cc, very high compression, 9 to 1 or more. Was built as an off-road motor, heavy crank and rods, heavy fly wheel, extreme single port heads, modified combustion chambers, a lot to make a high torque single port run like a dual port motor. Had about 40 hours on flow bench and entire intake and exhaust porting done. Special 30 pict-1 offroad carb. It has a special distributor also. It is a very responsive torque motor. 69X 94 mm bore and it started out as a VW 1600. It was his personal engine built for his prospecting buggy in AZ and I bought it and installed it in this bug with new clutch, TO bearing. I installed a new windshield as well. Runs great, tons of torque, shifts smooth. Needs proper Seat sliders. It was originally blue and resprayed yellow at some point, shows well as a driver, not a show car. Tires are newer. Overall a great car to drive as is and tinker on. Bought for my daughter, we have worked on it together and had fun with it. Selling to get her another car.
