4x4 Beetle

Post by Jdt1976 » Sat Jul 01, 2017 6:06 pm

After reading the thread of the T2 4x4 I had to share these photos I took of the prototype 4x4 beetle pan I did see last weekend at HO17.

I should've taken more pics but was not very comfortable with the idea that they had cars on display in a church.

Anayway, will also see if I find more info on the history but here is the pics:

Not always a bad thing to get a blessing on a project.

Should keep the language more civil when you hit your fingers.....

Wasn't Goring's beetle all wheel drive? It was listed on e-bay a while back and I'm pretty sure it was all wheel drive.
