Ebay Description:

1835cc VW engine with dual Webber Carbs and mild cam. The car weighs 500LB less than a VW Bug with about 50% more horse power! The Car has approximately 8500 miles on it. It was stored for about 20 years and recently put back on the road after a top end engine overhaul, a rebuilt transaxel and new brakes installed. The metal 9 gallon fuel tank got rusty on the inside while in storage but does not leak. It needs to be cleaned out and re-installed if desired. Right now the car has a plastic 6 gallon boat tank in it. The car runs great but will not smog in California without switching back to the stock carburetor. A tow bar plus lights go with the car as well as an unfinished hardtop, there is no soft top. Buyer must come and get the car. You will probably need a pickup truck or SUV so that you can take the hardtop with you. $500 deposit within 3 days of auction closing, balance due within two weeks or when retrieving the car.

The car has a Neal pedal assembly which provides dual master cylinders for the brakes plus hydraulic clutch and hydraulic throttle. There is a 1 qt aluminum oil sump on the bottom of the engine, a 1 qt spin on oil filter plus oil cooler. No overheating in Arizona 100+ deg temperatures!
