56 Oval

Hi

I just bought this 56 Oval, I found it in a driveway abut 10 ks from my house, I used to see it under a tarp but a few weeks ago the tarp blew of so I saw it was an Oval. Not sure what colour to paint it, thinking a US colour Capri Blue. So I will get it back on the road some nice wheels and a little bit lower. I also have a SC12 Toyota supercharger that I might fit

It has been modified a little,
1600 single port motor I think, its an early Type 3 case
later synchro trans
adjustable front beam
caster shims
KMac front sway bar
4 stud Beetle front disc brakes and Type 3 rear drums
the dash has holes in for gauges, a tacho and fuel gauge, not sure if I will fill this in or not

My son has donated some Southern Ways wheels from his Jap wheel collection, he has about 60 pairs, all in 15 inch. I will get the bolt pattern on the Beetle changed to 4x114.3 and have suitable sized lips put on the centres.

Thanks guys, I will keep it under control I think, I already have one stupid car. We are still building an 2332 Oxy Boxer for my sons 1303 so his 1904 might go into the oval

I dig that you like oxyboxers, Steve. Don't ask me why as I don't really know. Oxyboxers always make me think of the last of the aircooled 911 engine, like, they're the penultimate aircooled VW(even though they don't start out that way). Makes no semse to me either.
