1966 VW Fastback Project from Norway!

Post by Norwegian_Fasty » 5th March 2014 - 12:25pm

Hi everybody!

Here is my 1966 Fastback, got it in september last year and now i have started to fix it up.
It`s alot of rust under the paint and som small rustholes.
The engine is 1680cc with "pancakefilters", ported intakes and EMPI exhaust.
Porsche hubs, brakes and wheels is mounted on the car, the wheels are "cookiecutters".

The car is being stripped down right now, hope to get it up and running again before the summer.

Here is some pictures! Hope my bad english is ok for you guys ;)

Hei, og velkommen till vår lille klubb Norwegian_Fasty. - don't worry about your English, it will probably be better than ours :)

The car looks fairly solid and seems to be coming on well. I like the original blue colour, so think that's a good choice, though you will have to repaint the wheels. If you aren't happy with the original blue then you can choose another original colur or go completely custom and choose any colour under the rainbow.

Judging by the decals on the side of the car I assume the car has done some local club rallying in the past. Where abouts are you based ?
