FRVNGN's '67

Postby frvngn » Sun Nov 13, 2011 5:48 pm

Living without a Vw since June of this year and looking daily......an email with a link from Greg arrived showing that a '67 beetle was for sale.

Local to boot!!

Fighting with the idea for a few weeks.......and getting some gental nudging..........I pulled the trigger yesterday. Now I am now the proud new owner of a litte green 1967 beetle.

It has been involved in the local GTA (Greater Toronto Area) Vw community for a few years now and some of the Canadian corner members have been kind enough to shed some light on it's history for me.

Thanks for that!

......oh yeah.............the driver's side rear wheel was seized.......what a f%#&@ng treat the was getting in on & off the trailer. ](*,) ](*,)

Here's a little taste......

no more fat chick! \:D/

Yup, at this very moment, 11:50pm at night and 17C/63F.
I was cruising the super today. :)

Nice score on the '67 Ron. Is there a motor in it? Last I heard ED had the motor out and it was at Lanner's.

This fine piece of German engineering is in my shop to be reassembled. Ron did good with this car- Ed had a lot of money into it. Came with pop-outs to be installed, rebuilt (top end AFAIK) 1500, dual carbs with WW Okrassa air cleaners, new exhaust, Randar wheels with new tires. Ron's going to change up the interior (I vote for something grey), and make it his. Going to be fun having Ron roll with us again next summer in an air cooled. \:D/

Man, that thing is begging for some good ol' cal-look love. 67 is THE year to build a cal-look out of...and you already have shaved turn signals!

Some 205/70 rubber in the rear, 135 front, a set of weathered BRMs, a 3"-4" beam, and maybe some T bars. That sounds like a good recipe to me....and maybe a 11:1 fk87, 2276cc IDA engine, with a close ratio transaxle.

No it was at Ed's awaiting on the reunion with the trans, after Alex's precision machining work had been completed.

I belivev that the spacers are in one of the many parts boxes that I got with the car. \:D/
.......interested in the Redwalls Josh???

As for the signals......I am still on the fence, but leaning more towards having them :-k those will be the last thing that gets crossed off the To Do list.
