From German look back to 70th race look

Hello,
This is my Concept for my Car.
It will not be the typical german look, it shall resemble the colorous race cars of the late 70th.
I will put back all the chrome an leaving only a few hints of modern technology in the shape of carbon dashboard, sidepanels ...



Here ist my car, I bought it in 1995 convertet it to a typical germanlooker with tornato red paint and black trims.
The engine is a 2,5 L aircraft based aircooled WBX with twin ignition enabling over 130mph on the autobahn.

Now itīs time for a complete overhaul starting with a complte disasemblie

Pachtwork over rust, this has to be done by an expert, my luck is the good condition of the car.









This will be the color
Porsche cobalt blue



Wheels are Fuchs style Dynamic Speed 16" in 7,5" and 9"

A little bit to modern but not so crude like the one of the 70th.



The Seat will be modern too, I simple donīt like the old RS Seats

Here some pictures from former days.

The engine is a Limbach aircraft engine, similar to the type 1 but with a oettinger crank you have 2,482ccm an the twin sparks heads from the aircraft engine.

Nice! Do you have more detailed pictures from these cylinderheads, especially the plug locations? Which casting are these heads based on?

Hmmm. First time I clicked on your pics I got a girl on a webcam. Not a bad thing offcourse.....
Anyway, eventually got to your bigger pics and the parts you're using look really nice. And the work you've already done too. Looking forward to see the rest of the build and the finished car.
