Porsche 914 motor in een 1303 kever uit 1975 - Eerste keer starten
De eerste keer starten van een Porsche 914 motor nadat deze is ingebouwd in
een Volkswagen 1303 kever uit 1975. De motor heeft voorheen in een Karmann
Ghia gezeten. Zoals je kan horen moet de motor nog flink afgesteld worden,
maar hij loopt wel! Meer informatie over deze kever vind je op
www.VWkever.com en dan de knop "Wims 75er kever".

1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Engine Start
First time starting up the 2333 cc engine (91x84mm) that I installed in my
wife's freshly restored 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible. Yes, I
know my coil is installed upside-down. The after-market wire harness was
installed with too little slack to reach a downward-pointing coil. This is
250hp Barndoor Typ4 engine runs
after a long week-end at the Dyno with approx. 125 coffees &
Red Bulls, 2 broken mainshafts, 3 angry wifes, just junkfood, a ticket for
speeding, a friendly neighbour who mentioned (at 10 pm on sunday) that his
glasses in the cupboard were "dancing", a broken clutch disk and
readjusting the new throttle bodies the Barndoor engine finally runs!

1972 VW Karmann Ghia
1972 Karmann Ghia Convertible. Great little California car, same owner for
the last 8 years. Solid, straight body and very comfortable interior. Car
appears to have had a couple of color changes, it was originally yellow.
The body is very nice with very little filler and no rust. The passenger
floor shows some rust and will need to be replaced eventually if the car is
to be driven in the weather. Otherwise, drivers side is fine. The black
cloth top is in nice condition as is the rear glass window. The interior is
also pretty nice though the door panels are warped. The car starts and runs
well. It shifts nicely and drives straight. The brakes are responsive and
the suspension functions properly with good handling. Car shows 6K miles,
the actual miles are unknown.
Owning a classic VW is a great feeling! You'll get thumbs-up every where
you go, and you'll soon realize these cars have a personality all their
own. If you've ever considered buying a Ghia, or if you've had a classic VW
in the past and want to rekindle that joyous, nostalgic feeling that can
only come from a classic Volkswagen, then this is the car for you. Not to
mention the extremely low cost of ownership, great gas mileage and the fact
that these cars are only appreciating in value. See it at

latest update of the long awaited MUBBSI trilogy; shorter than the 'Lord of
the Rings' offering - but arguably better?....... :)
I bet Frodo couldn't put a VeeDub together anyroad?
3yrs on & less than 1 to go,
& believe me, I should know!
At least the engine + ancillaries are mostly done, additional forced
draught airflow for the oil cooler and engine bay ventilation are still on
the 'to do' list but at least she's running and no leaks! Just another 600
bits n' pieces to finish off then this baby hits the streets; then heading
abroad and North the year after looking for glaciers - with a bit of luck!
Anyone out there up for forming an air cooled convoy? Should be COOL!!
2010, I'm looking forward to it already :)
