DUBSTAR'S PROJECT - Weiß Hase - 1976 Golf LS
« on: April 23, 2012, 04:57:43 pm »
I've been hanging out for a project car for a year+ now and I finally found a Mk1 3 door.  The search has been long, with a few near misses, but it's complete!









There's tidying up to do, but overall its in great condition.  I'm about to head on holiday so I don't pick it up until June, but it's all mine....

Plans are:

1) I managed to find one of these body kits, which are really rare and should look grouse. http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/marsfield/auto-body-parts/vw-golf-body-kit-for-mk1-mk2-golf/1001271379

2) That should allow me to cut the fenders to run some 17" BBS, I'll try for 7" wide, but may have to settle for 6".

3) I'll leave the engine as is, because its original.  I may add a 36 Weber carb down the line.





Kidding.....

In reality the plans are:

1) Keep the outside minty fresh/period patina
2) Good suspension and some wider 14/15's with sticky rubber.
3) I want to go 2.0L crossflow 8v and run some Weber DCOEs, but use programmable ignition.
4) Interior needs a full strip out.  I want some oldschool race seats, like on the early 911s/minis/fiats.

That is a minter, probably opening a can of worms here, but I don't know about the kit  :-X

They would look good with that bodykit.

Awesome - looks like a pearler. Definitely needs a dose of lowness though - hahhaaa. Also a little black sticker at the bottom of the F to turn it into an E would epic school boy humour!

It cost me $3000, which is about average here. There has been one or two 1000 bargains, but they are generally in need of more bodywork

 That is worth $3000 all day long its just beautiful, Im so glad its in your hands and you won't make a meal of it.
 Keep it clean and original.
 Except for the ABF........believe me an ABF will make you way way happier than farting around on a 8v tho I know you love your 8vs ;)
