56 Oval


I just bought this 56 Oval, I found it in a driveway abut 10 ks from my house, I used to see it under a tarp but a few weeks ago the tarp blew of so I saw it was an Oval. Not sure what colour to paint it, thinking a US colour Capri Blue. So I will get it back on the road some nice wheels and a little bit lower. I also have a SC12 Toyota supercharger that I might fit

It has been modified a little,
1600 single port motor I think, its an early Type 3 case
later synchro trans
adjustable front beam
caster shims
KMac front sway bar
4 stud Beetle front disc brakes and Type 3 rear drums
the dash has holes in for gauges, a tacho and fuel gauge, not sure if I will fill this in or not

My son has donated some Southern Ways wheels from his Jap wheel collection, he has about 60 pairs, all in 15 inch. I will get the bolt pattern on the Beetle changed to 4x114.3 and have suitable sized lips put on the centres.
