69 squareback-the plans...

Post by Simon » Mon Jan 03, 2011 11:57 am

After selling my 66 ratty beetle some mates and i made the trip out to hermanus to check out this 69 squareback on a local farm , thanks to all who helped in finding the owner and car :D was quite a process. after buying the car and getting it down to cape town, which was a great trip and the car did its thing well-except for the near blow out on the back right tyre. :?

These are some pics of the car and a drawing of sorts of what im planning for it, keeping it kinda hoodride...
The plans are rather simple and are based off the main focus of bagging it with air rides :hangloose: which means i will be saving for sometime :shock:
Im hoping to get hold of a type3 rack from a mate so long and put in a decent alarm and cool aerial.
Also thinking nice narrow/wide deep dish setup with possible whitewalls and wheel colour coding!
or some of zunaids imported wheels would also rock!
keen to leave the paint as is, its the original colour..

love planning these things :D although things will take time, its all a part of the process i say! saving patiently makes it all worth while...

The car is very solid all round and has been well looked after-which makes life much easier for me! :D

please do throw any constructive criticism my way- help with advice and bits and bobs will be great! thanks guys!

Congrats Simon.

Its always difficult telling a person you've seen a sweet ride and then have to hope that in that persons eye it is. To some folk a car might be a grand find and to others it'll look like a piece of :bn:

Enjoy your new wheels

If I had the cash last september, I would of snapped that squary up there and then.
Why do we celebrate the guy that invented the wheel??
Surely we must celebrate the guy tat invented the other three
