Gavin Lusby - Member No 1009

Car Type: Chesil Speedster

XRL 764J

Contact email:

Based in: Bristol

Joined Club: June 2017

ENGINE: 1776cc, counterweight crank, 110 cam, 044 heads, twin 40s, 009, alternator.

CHASSIS DETAILS: Shortened '71 Beetle chassis with original VW floors. Lowered front beam, lowered spindles, discbrakes. IRS rear lowered springplates.

TRIM/COLOUR DETAILS: patina VW sealing wax red, black stripes. Stripped down 'race' interior.

June 2017 update: The car is just off to the trimmers. Rubbish number plates, huge fog and reverse lights, reflectors and headrests will go once it's tested. 

I can recommend cutting the chassis like this, you can just see the line in the floor pan. Looks much more factory than a diagonal cut. VW original pans! 

Powder coated chassis, note steering rack.
