Anyone know anything about this one? Curious how they supposedly got 330hp out of a NA 2180...

The wind up key adds at least 100 HP.

Even with that, this is over estimated.
""Tiny Chopped 1964 VW Bus Comes with a Wind Key, Is Actually a 330 HP Monster"

There's a 2180 sticker on it and I bet it doesn't have more than half of the stated 330hp.170hp.

Have never seen that year Ford tail lights used before on a VW. I personally like what they did. The split window is correct for that vintage Ford. Would have chosen a different color but, looks pretty well done.

While I agree it doesn't look right, at least to me, with a split window over a 70s deck lid. It's finished and cruising on the highway. That's more than can be said about a lot of the vehicles in this thread.

Gotta remember - not after a split look, but 40 Ford. The late decklid is MUCH closer in appearance to a 40 Ford sedan than an early VW deck lid....

If I was going to do something like that, it would be similar...but probably black and flames...Wide whites, red steelies and the moon discs would still probably work fine...

If they took all the parts they put on that bug and put them on this bug I think it may look decent. Or did the roof line like this volks rod in the classifieds. And give it a 1940 ford 2 door coupe look.
The back windows of the one from the classifieds look too small in my opinion.

The problem with most coupe attempts out of beetles I see is the upper line of the door window doesn't start to curve back down part way back, that rat is a prime example. The silver one could almost pass for a tudor if it wasn't so stubby.

Rear windows to small agreed. Oval would be better. Cool front axel and over all talented work for sure.

Dang!, that thing gets around!
20 years ago it was sitting by the road in Aldergrove with a for sale sign on it, then ~ 5 years ago it was advertised as a potential project for "Vegas Rat rods" with a rediculous buy in and no compensation if you didn't like what the "star" chose to do with it (but you'd get to be "on TV"). Confused

vw powered? or chassis swapped? i think it could be a cool idea, just not very practical. its like a verne troyer training to be a body builder as opposed to a young arnold. it would take alot of work to make that bus be able to tow something usefull. thats is, unless its just for looks Laughing

One axle was a dummy, regular VW power last time I kicked it's tires (and a shitty looking hacked 1600 SP with missing tin IIRC).
