danny's '61... updated.

Post by danoxford on Mon Sep 22, 2008 7:50 pm

hey guys and girls...my name is danny and i'm from valdosta. this is my '61...

i found it locally about a year ago and thrash built it with my buddy ray to make it to bug jam. i've done a crap load of work to it in the past year...here is some of the particulars...

engine is a 1776...as41 case, forged counterbalanced crank, scat cam (dont remember the #), new mexican dual port heads, dual kads, full flow w/big sump (1.5qt.???)...i used to run a mallory unilite but i hated it so im back to the good 'ole 019.

the tranny is the old short axle thats original to the car but it's about to die so that will hopefully change soon. its been lowered in front with a drophaus 5" narrowed beam w/cb drop spindles and empi adjusters...the back is just two outers down.

phone dials at the corners w/175/55 continentals in front and 205/50 michelins in back...wide 5 to porsche pattern adapters.

the interior is stripped in preparation for rust repair and prevention and the outside is spray bombed OD green cause i hate red...(the original color...ruby red)

ummm...the roof rack is a repop but is surprisingly sturdy, and i need new window seals both static and door.

hopefully i will run into some of you guys in the future or maybe i already have and i'm just retarded.

cheers

danny

Sweet ride! I hope to see it. Will you be going to reynolds in a couple of weeks?

Thanks for the welcome guys...I'm glad I finally found the site. I've been wanting to be a part of a more local forum. I'll post up some more pics when I get a little down time from work.

Unfortunately not. My current financial situation will not allow me to go. I REALLY need a new tranny and I'm saving every dollar...literally.

here's my beetle when i first brought it home...my buddy ray found it in an old man's back yard in morven, ga. and i bought it for a grand and drove it on the trailer.


i had a month before bug jam to get it road worthy...this was the first step.


secong step. freshen up the old engine and convert it to 12v.


final step. low. very low.


new to me 1776. put it in before charlotte show this past year.


at the annual hahira, ga. get together this summer.


thanks for lookin'

that bug is killer. I'm glad it worked out for you. Maybe I will get mine done for Bug Jam and we can both roll a bug.

I bought this 7" stop light from a guy in texas a few months ago. At first I couldn't figure out how to mount it so it sat there...taunting me. Fortunately my creativity woke up recently...here are the results.
