More good news. The person is going to sell me the Ghia after all. They just had to ponder the issue a bit and realize that it will really just sit around doing nothing for another 20 years. Best to let go and let some one else do something with it. I will let them see the vehicle after we are done. I need to find a color paint close to the color of the Ghia. Not sure if I can match it.
Have a look at the motor as I got it.
As it looks now. Getting there.
Constant pressure brush springs. A must have if you can.
Specific to the old Air Cooled VW is is meant to retain the stock clutch.
The flywheel end is only held with 4 dowel pins and single center bolt.
Not designed for being a Hot Rod but a cruiser.
You could Hot Rod the motor if you went with 8 dowel pins.
