VW Speedster / Hot Rod for sale

Post by sleepAIR » Sat Dec 26, 2015 3:50 pm

Uniqe „Tatinson Speedster” for sale. A real head turner. The car is in percfect shape, looks and drives flawlessly. Based on a 1971 VW Beetle chassis and shares a lot of parts with the original car - not just engine and suspension but all the locks, hinges, lamps and interior bits. - very cheap and easy to maintain. It was finished in 2006 after a 2-year-long nut and bolt restoration. The build quality is top notch, it still looks like new. Countless working hours was put into the body to find the correct shape. The GRP fiberglass fenders are widened 15 cm in the rear and 5 cm in front to accept the 8x15 and 5x15 wire wheels while under the Ford-style hood you will find the boot and the spare wheel just like in a regular bug. Interior is classic and untouched except the Recaro seats and extra gauges. With the reinforced suspension and 1915ccm aircooled engine it is a blast to drive while surprisingly quiet even without the (GRP) roof. The strong heating capacity, serious sound isolation and cleverly designed exhaust (quiet) makes it a nice cruiser for longer trips. This 2+2 seater Hot Rod is one of a kind. Original AB engine (bored to 1600ccm) is included if needed. Located in Hungary (Central Europe), worldwide shipping.

Specifications:

Engine:
Freshly built 1915 ccm (CT case with external oil cooler), 2x 36 Dellorto DLRA (revised), Engle W110 cam, SCAT lightened lifters, Scat valve springs, 1.25:1 rockers, ported heads with standard valves (35/32), custom exhaust, external oil cooler. Reliable 100 HP with decent fuel economy.

Suspension:
Fully rebuilt with stock disc brake in front, lowered beam with matching shocks (chromed), front and rear braces, 5x15/8x15 wire wheels

Interior:
Reclining Recaro seats, extra gauges (rev.couner, oil pressure & temperature, shift light – set @5000 rpm), stereo, sound isolation.

Exterior:
Custom made GRP fiberglass panels and roof, widened fenders, custom made T-bar bumpers

There is a hideous Roll Royce or something style front end that I see now and then for sale. Those are so ugly that I never thought a raised front would work on a Beetle. However, your car looks great. It is a real nice combination of Beetle and 30s-40s styling. I hope you get a good sale.

Swingaxle suspension was offered in non-USA markets for years after 1968. Long/long-spline axles and Z-bar, just as the last ones we got had. The rearmost body mount location changed in `68, and the Z-bar mounting points on the body were retained, so any `68-up body can be used on either style chassis.
