1966 Dick Landy supercharged VW Beetle
This is an 1835CC DP with the CB perf. offroad special cam. I purchased
the DLI kit complete off a running drag bug for $1500, installed it on my
engine and fired it up. I only ran it briefly since it is wicked
overdriven, (18-20PSI Boost) and I
can only run it on race fuel for $12/gal. Plus at the time I didn't have a
way to tune it so I didn't want to mess up the engine. I have no idea what
the timing and A/F are. I would estimate the HP at around 200 or so.

I finally got around to shooting some real-time video as the cars sits
today. As you can tell there are many videos between the youtube footage
and now, I will try and hasten their delivery. The white floppy things late
in the vid are a couple of Tie-Wraps subbing for windshield wipers. Going
fast sure creates a lot of wind noise.

With a solid body, strong original drivetrain and comfortable cloth
interior, this 1969 Volkswagen Beetle is one of the best and most unique
collector cars your $15K can buy!
Sporting a slick coat of era correct Cloud White paint, this fully sorted
and completely road ready Beetle recently benefitted from a frame up
restoration which likely cost close to what we're asking for the car
itself. And while its body isn't concours perfect, it is super straight and
carries a spectacular shine that will look excellent motoring down the road
to a VW show or your favorite local hang-out. The restorers began by
stripping the car down to its bare metal and smoothing and prepping each of
its panels. Once those panels were completely flat, and aligned to better
than factory standards, they were evenly coated in a high quality,
two-stage urethane and buffed to a high gloss shine.
Powering this sharp '69 Beetle is the cars original low compression 1500cc
air cooled 'pancake' four cylinder which wears a correct H5369438 serial
number and produces a perfectly adequate 50 horsepower. Based on sound
and appearance, the peppy engine has been completely rebuilt sometime in
the not too distance past; and it runs beautifully, creating that famous
and distinctive VW gait which has become synonymous with all boxer engines.
At the top of the block, a gloss black air cleaner funnels wind into a
correct Solex one barrel carburetor that's equipped with a small inline
fuel filter. To the left of that carburetor, a Bosch coil supplies a
traditional points distributor that's equipped with fresh Bosch plug wires.
And to the right of that carburetor, a Bosch generator spins above a gloss
black oil filler tube that's fitted with a correct "OEL" cap and a silver,
Take one look underneath this cool VW and you'll find a straight, fully
sorted chassis that's seen plenty of indoor storage and years of impeccable
maintenance. Both the double A-arm front and independent rear suspensions
have been completely rebuilt at some point in the car's life and feature
pliable bushings and solid feeling shocks. At the ends of those
suspensions, traditional drum brakes are all it takes to bring this
welterweight bug to a stop. At the back of the car, power flows from the
flat four engine into an original 4-speed manual transaxle which wears a
correct A1010241 side stamp. And at the corners of the car, silver 15 inch
steel wheels spin 165/15 Lemans steel belted radials around pristine, "VW"
branded stainless center caps.
Pop open the car's solid closing doors and you'll find a comfortable and
stylish gray cloth interior which is the perfect spot to spend the
afternoon cruising. The driver and front passenger enjoy firm Scat Procar
bucket seats, rear occupants ride on a custom covered bench, and all
passengers are secured with original Volkswagen lap belts. At the front of
the car, a repaired dash still looks attractive despite 43 years of
battling UV rays; and with the exception of a cool old cassette player,
features the same minimalist readouts and accessories found in all Beetles.
Below the seats, like-new gray carpet rides under a factory shifter that's
topped by a cool wooden knob. At the sides of the seats, completely painted
door jams and window frames contrast well against gray cloth door panels
that are complete with fresh armrests, tight map pockets, black window
cranks and traditional chrome door handles. And above the seats a tight
white headliner frames a new-for-1969 day/night mirror. In front of the
driver, an ornate Volkswagen steering wheel makes good use of the car's
small turning radius; and in front of the cockpit a spacious, by Beetle
standards, fully restored front hatch holds a horizontal spare tire.
If you're looking for fun, practical transportation, this fully sorted
Beetle looks awesome and is ready to go! Call, click or visit
