The jack was taken apart, blasted, painted, and re-assembled. Painted spare with 135r15 in case you get a flat.

The engine is a 1600cc single-port engine that was rebuild a few years back. It runs great, has had a new flywheel, clutch pack, trough-out, exhaust, carburetor rebuild, 30/31 Pict, 009 distributor, Bosch Point, Bosch condenser, Bosch Cap, Bosch wires, Bosch blue coil, new Contitech belt, tin paint, engine bay seals, tar board insulation, and OEM stickers. This engine bay looks like it was on a showroom floor! The shroud was converted to a new 36hp unit for an earlier appearance. The transmission is a rebuilt 1967 unit that had the axles swapped, new seals, boots, and all mounts.

The car is running a 4” narrowed front beam, and rides pretty nice. The brakes are all new, bearings, seals, shoes, hardware, wheel cylinders, rubber hoses, and master cylinder. New Porsche replica 2.0l 914 wheels with Wolfsburg center caps. Everything has been gone over, cleaned, detailed, or replaced.
