Just caught your web page here in East Wenatchee WA. and thought I would
drop you a line and show the buggy I brought back last year. We only get to
use it about three months out of a year but it stores well and it is always
fun to break it out on those first nice days of spring. I am unaware of the
make and model of the body. I have looked for id marks but have had no luck
so I will send you a picture and maybe one of your club members will
The pan is a 1961 with a swing built by KCR into a Pro Street version.
The engine is a new VW AS-41 case w/Full Flow and a extra 2 qt. deep sump.
the crank is a Scat Counter Weighted w/standard bearings and the stock 69mm
stroke that with the 92mm pistons makes it a 1776cc. Rod are Bug Pac Racing
Rods, and the heads are Scat "mini" D-port with stainless valves and duel
springs and along with that It has a Scat H/D 1.4 to 1 ratio rockers riding
a scat C-45 cam. Carbonation is a pair of Weber IDF 44s on Weber intakes and
the spark is furnished by a MSD Al-6 with a MSD Billet Distributor W/MSD
tach Adapter and a Blaster coil from MSD All of the engine machine work was
done by Scat and Proformance in Orange CA. Electrical is powered by a Bosh
Alternator the rest is pretty much chrome and fluff.
The front ends is a Link Pin and the shocks are KYB gas-adj.
The paint is PPG 2001 Mazda RX-7 red mixed in a field mix 2.
I increased the russet pearl to 90grm per QT. and sprayed 2 Qts on.
The clear is also PPG 2001 and There are four coats on
it . The firs coat has 30 grms of blue pearl and the last three are just
The rest of the Buggy is straight forward, Cockpit gages poly foam
seats, etc. The plan is to put the engine on Giggle Gas prior to spring
break out and with the 8 to 1 compression it should be fun on the street
which is the only duty that it sees besides the Show & Shine meets. The car
has placed 1st in the Homebuilt or kit car class 2 0f 3 shows and won
loudest pipes in the third. I know that I could make more power with the
"stinger" exhaust, but I like the Nostalgia look and sound. Well, that my
buggy and I would like to enter it in the Buggy of the Month contest.
