Yep, mine is a 2387. The PSPG has a smaller motor and I'm pretty sure it won't crack 100+ like mine, but 80+ with reduction gears is pretty damn fast! Ronnie set that Bus up. He done good.

By the way, I just got home from a 1,400 mile road trip to Oklahoma, Arkansas, and back to Texas.... the bus now has over 30,000 miles since we picked it up from KCW in 2009.

That says alot about the busses you guys build =D> Smile

Scotty's double cab has always been in my top 3 favorite KCW builds. Anymore pictures of the 55, looks like a sweet bus

Supposed to be the full story in Octobers Hot Vw's, the bus was on it's second do over, I slammed it first, he drove it for a year, then raised it to stock height so he could travel better/look more original and the next do over will be putting all the stock running gear back in. The never ending project.
The engine is my standard 2027, the trans has my standard gear stack

ps. Looking for original tan used headliner sections or whatever.
Shit load of buses and even more parts

Sounds great John. I don't have any plans to mod it, so painted and ready is just right!
