Super Beetle Feature

5 1/2 Years

This is my 1974 1303s Moss Green Super Bug. I've had it since I was 16 and now I'm 25. It was my first car and drove around in it for almost two years before I decided to do what I wanted to do with it. I took me 5 1/2 years to finish it and I did everything myself apart from the paint and a little help from friends. It's my take on a German Look Beetle with a 2332cc JPM engine making around 240+ bhp. Right now I'm busy changing the gearbox for a Burg 5-speed so it will be back on the road soon.
