DANS G.L. 1303s

Hello all.
I thought it was about time I put up some info about my bug, ive had it for 12 years and been in the scene for 32 years (old git) I love the German look, i have done all the work myself except building the gearbox.
Hope you like it.
Cheers, Dan.

Nice ride! Tell us about the engine. Type IV?

P.S. - I'm extremely jealous of the flared fenders which seem impossible to get here in the States....aaahhmmm, Creative Car Craft.

Me like it! I can spot ATS wheels, Type 1 power, Stainless exhaust, GWD central filter, LED Taillights. Are those Scat seats? Can see 4 spot front calipers? The ATS give a flair of Old School German Look!

Hi Guys,
Thank you,
The wings are from Kerscher, the wheels are ATS Classics 7x15 fr 9x15 r
They have allways been my favorite wheels, I also have the same rims on my Manx buggy
The motor is a T1 2332cc here is the spec;
84mm Berg crank T4 centre.
5.5 Carrilo rods.
Ally bubbletop case
Fk 87 with berg 1-4 rockers
Udo becker light lifters
Dry sump oil system.
044 ultramags 44x37
CSP 48mm python
48 idf carbs+ GWD airbox.

Thats the basic spec but I am currently building a 2270 T4 motor also with dry sump, T.Pieper tool lifters etc.
some more pics of the build.

Cool ride. People often don't opt for ATS wheels, but they look cool.

Besides that, 15-inch or 16-inch can be even better that 18's (if you run normal, or just slightly abnormal brakes). If You can remember Christian Seltzer's 1303 RS... that's what I mean

Hello mate.
Yes they are CSP rear lights, they are well made but expensive, I had some genuine hella (mexico) units on before, they were good .
Cheers, I will check yours out.
Dan.

Hello walter.
Thank you, I have been watching your progress for some time , I saw you going around Spa last year, very nice build.

My rear components consist of GWD coil overs, springplate retainers, torque bar set up, M.Mansi pivot bolts, standard modify A' arms.
Its not as radical as some on hear, however I would like to try the unibal set up in the future.
Thanks.
Dan.

Always good to see a new GL on here. Congrats on a fine car and fine work. Prepare for a ton of more questions. That's the price you pay for showing off eye candy.

Tnx Dan. I like your rear-coil-over set-up. Do you only use the coil-over as the only load or are the torsion bars also still in place?

If you get a 4-point cage or better, you can run at the free driving track session in Spa as well next year. You know it ultimately is what you build the car for imho

Hi Walter.
Torsion bars are still in just adjusted for load, You are right about the cage I was lucky enough to go on the track sessions with Gerd Weiser in his awesome 1302, he is a very skilled man. we will be going in 2012.
Cheers.
Dan. p.s. are you coming to the Volksworld show ?
