Feb '98 Buggy of the Month

Dave Young of Junction City, Kansas.

It's a '64 pan, with a 1600cc engine. While I had it apart for the bodywork and paint, I went through the clutch and brake system, new shocks, tires, fuel tank, carb, etc. It shifted horribly, and most of the problem was that the last guy had done a stinker of a job shortening the shift rail properly. Absence of the hanger bushing didn't help either. Fixed all that, and added an Empi Pro-comp shifter for good measure. The interior got full carpeting, custom stiched side panels, a new roll bar, and Beard seats. Future plans call for a hotter engine, but for now, I think we'll just cruise it as is!
