The project

The story..



The engine is complete rebuild to a 1780 cc with twin 40mm IDF (weber) carbs and porsche cooling fan..

The chassis also needs a great job of work. It's compleet stripped down and powerd coated. All part are renewed and big wheels are moulded. Also the breaks are replaced for disk types and the gear boxs is replaced for a AT type of gearboxs.
