1966 VW Dune Buggy - Manx style

1966 VWC Piasano

I have done a lot of work to it since I first got it, but I'm burned out and it takes up too much room in the garage. I'm going to stow it away in a barn until someone buys it or until i can get back around to it.

Issues:
-Needs new pans
-Rear frame horn is tweaked
-Body needs fiberglass work and paint
-No title - (I did apply for a bonded title, just never went and paid for it. after seeing that the chassis needed some work i was trying to find a good titled '66 and older chassis with a title, but I've yet to run across one.)
-Could use new TRE's and BJ's
-needs steering wheel
-Wiring and lights (I have the stock '66 tail lamps)
-Brakes (needs hard line ran from M/C to rear, had new soft lines, shoes, and cylinders)

Good:

Completely Rebuilt motor with only a few hours run time
-Stock '66 1300 case turned into a 1600
-crank journals machined .020 and polished
-All German bearings (crank and cam)
-Rebuilt stock rods
-Mahle flat top 85.5 pistons & jugs
-rebuilt 1970 Single Port heads
-stock valve train
-Bugpack 4061 camshaft (270* duration, .396 lift, 108* lobe)
-New German Lifters
-Resurfaced flywheel and New 6V clutch/pressure plate -end play set correctly-Gland nut tq to 300 ft lbs
-36HP fan, setup for external cooler and filter
-new oil pump
-new fuel pump
-Reman Bosch 12v generator
-Weber 32/36 (also have a 34 Pict and DP intake that needs rebuild)
-EMPI exhaust and intake castings
-Aluminum bolt on valve covers
-SVDA Distributor

Trans
-Stock '66 trans
-All gears worked, needs clutch fork installed ( Ihave fork and kit)

Wheels and tires: Excellent shape and like new
-Aluminum 15x8 5x4.75 (Wide 5 adapters)
-BFG Radial T/A 225/70R15 Front
-BFG Radial T/A 255/70R15 rear

Windshield frame(steel) and tinted glass

Clean Fuel tank




I have all the parts somewhere that it came with or I replaced, but just ask if you see something out of place.

$1200

As it currently sits:

Just a guess, but he probably edited the original post. Especially seeing that it was edited 2 minutes before he bumped up the thread.... But maybe that's just how I read it....LOL!

4) No Price Bashing. If somebody has a item listed and you disagree with the price and you just HAVE to say something, send them a PM. Don't post in their thread. The seller owns the parts, they know what they want for it, nobody says you have to buy it.

Just sayin.....

Not sure how you read things but i wasnt price bashing, i never said he was to high or to low, i was just making sure i read it right and obviously i didnt so thanks for pointing me in the right direction on the forum rules.
