RARE BEAST

There are only about 5or 6 double door 23windows known to have survived!

One of them was imported from California just to be sold .....

...to Austria!

The funny thing is that everything that went away during the time when the dollar was strong now comes back in masses!

Walt is on TYPE IV!

I ´m still in the engine departement trying to finish one more motor! This time a type4! I don´t like them too much! This special POS (piece of sh..!) I´m working on is said being built by the race departement of TOYOTA!

We got the engine with 3000km under it´s belt but totally fried!

Why would you put in tecnology in a type 4 with piston bottom cooling and race material bolts when you put on a stock 411 exhaust with heat exchangers to loose the hard and expensive gained horse power so cheaply?

That is only one of many questions that came up during the rebuilt!

Special rods with oil galleys for the piston bottoms to get some cooling!

Check out the lightweight nuts! I had to buy a special tool for them!

23WINDOW PROJECT

DSCF1286
The 63 23 Window Samba came back from the sandblaster 2 weeks ago already primered in the right colors! The roof doesnt need to be welded so it´s been primered in white 2K. The rest of the body needs extensive work that is why it´s in the much cheaper red 1stage welding primer!

The same year ,corner windows ,same color combination, same interior but a big money difference because of the roof!

DSCF1776

Last week I found the missing matching year middle seat !

When Jörgi-Jörg came into play this week things got busy and the Samba on the lift!

The SAMBA will get a completely new body from the belt line down!
