My dream "1303 kafer"

Hey from Athens GREECE. I have been away from this forum for more than 3 years now. Anyway I am glad that the forum is active again. My 1975 - 1303s German Look project is close to finish. I have been building this car for the past 5 years now and it has cost me a small fortune but I do not mind because it has been my dream since I can remember myself. The idea started as a classic German Looker with a stock type IV crankshaft and 103 barrels and pistons = 2.4. I bought all the necessary parts from various suppliers and brought them to Greece. Then suddenly it hit me. I changed the plan and decided to do something bigger, more impressive, so I ordered a Pauter 82mm billet crank, new modified / ported cylinder heads with titanium valves – the works from Germany, changed my Schleicher cam for a custom Pauter, bought a dry sump, sold my 48 carbs for 50’s throttle bodies, bought an ECU, placed 6 piston brakes from a 996 GT2, sold my 993 Porsche leather seats for Recaro light carbon bucket seats, bought carbon bumbers & running boards, bought Stack instruments, KW coilovers and a lot more that it will take for ever to list. Finally we started assembling the motor. The car hopefully will be ready in a couple of months. I will keep you posted with the progress.

Love the work so far, but the pics are kinda small...anyway possible to post them through a link on a photo-provider like photobucket?

Who did your heads? and what exhaust system will you use?

Sorry about that but the pics are all from my BlackBerry and have been minimized for obvious reasons. The heads are from Udo Becker-Germany and the exhaust I will use will be either from Udo, Remmelle or GWD. We have not decided yet. I was thinking for a Hewland or even a Holinger sequential tranny but the cost is extremely high so I decided to stick with my beefed up dogleg 901.

Great project. The brakes are really overkill but I love it. Kinda surprised the Cup 1s fit over those! Keep up the awesome work.

Great project! I thought four piston calipers were overkill

Actually you stole mine. Anyway today I am expecting my "ATL racing fuel cell". The original has been given to a friend of mine and the ATL will take its place with the dry sump right next to it.

Cool build.

I see lots of bugs in the backround. Is this a shop in Athens?

Tell us a little more about the scene in Greece.

Pete

Exclamation

There are a couple of quality sedans and convertible German lookers/powered type iv in Athens. For example the attached orange car belongs to a very good friend of mine who happens to by my mechanic as well. Its a high spec American 1303 with lots and lots of expensive - high performance parts. Take a good look at the steering wheel and let me know what you think.
