1962 Beetle - Horace

Hey Volksfolk,
New forum looks good.
Following up to my old posts , I'd update progress on the old boy.

Back on the road after quite a few in my garage, the plan is to get him 100% mechanical, reliable and decent to drive, Fit the genuine Golde sunroof, then eventually take him apart to build him as a Herbie replica.

The time has come to fit my favourite standard engine - a 1500 single port, that came out of a South African Splitty.
The fan housing has factory blank off on both sides and it had J tubes as standard.

Looking great Si you must hold the record for engines in and out of a beetle. Thanks once again for the help you having given me with my engine out and in over the last few weeks. ;)
