1969 VW Beetle Rat Rod

The chassis is completely one off, entirely tube and perfectly rigid. All four wheels and tires are 295/50-15 on 10” wheels. 2” drop mustang II spindles and custom built A-arms. The rear axle is a GM 10 bolt held in place by a triangulated 4 link. The engine is a Chevrolet 383 and rated at 420 horsepower with a Comp Bad Mother Thumper cam. Holley double pumper 750 sits on top of a high rise intake. A built 700R4 with a 2800 stall and Locar shifter put you into gear. The car is typically called a rat rod and it definitely has the look but it was designed to be a bit more of a street legal race car.
