Project "topless" ;-)
 
Hi again!

Just took a couple of pictures of this winters project, my girlfriends 1972 1302 S Roadster.
I have many plans for this car, but my wallet doesn`t agree... :rolleyes:
If anyone has a free set of 16" Porsche Fuchs let me know!
More pictures will be added during the asembly process. (Did I spell that right?) The car is planned finnished in the end of April 2005.

By the way, the colour is VW Black magic pearl (LC9Z), the wheels are 7 & 9" ATS.

looks like its going to be pretty sweet!!! :agree:

Going to take more photos of the car in just a couple of days, and the engine is just waiting in the garage ready to be installed.
We went for a reliable 1600cc, tuned to about 80BHP. :sleep:
Picked up a set of Autometer instruments last week, and a new Momo steering wheel.
The front seats are from a MK1 Golf GTI, and the stereo is prom Pioneer.

Looks very nice. Curious about how you tuned that 1600 to 80hp. Could you give any specifics?

Rob December 30th 2004 09:56

topless = sexy :D :agree:

AS41 enginehousing, don`t remember the specs on the camshaft, lightened flywheel, 2 dual 40 solex carbs, ported and polished heads with bigger valves and stiffer springs, headers with a dual glasspack exhaust, bigger oilpump with full flow, T2 oilcooler.

Wow, thanks. That was probably the quickest reply I've ever seen. I asked only because I'm assembling a T1 at the moment, and I'm always interested in the different combos people use.

Looking sweet.
You got-a-love a black car. :laugh:

My engine is a 1914cc (69x94 stroke/bore) with dual 40 dellortos, engle cam, Gene Berg oil pump and piston rods, ported heads with bigger valves, full flow oilsystem. This engine was dynoed to 120BHP at the wheels, so that would be about 140BHP at the flywheel I guess.

that's pretty good output out of the 1914. roadster is looking nice. you can't go wrong with black. esp with polished 16" Fuchs.

remember, lots of pics and a few tech articles should come out of that project. :D

rustbucket December 30th 2004 15:08

Yes, that is good output. I can't wait for the tech articles. :D

That should look great when it's finished, I really like the vent in the rear panel... it looks very Porsche like ;)

Keep us posted with the pictures.

More pictures might come tomorrow! :D

boblebaard December 31st 2004 10:13

Picked up the car today, so here`s some new pictures for you! ;)
