Here is my project, its a 56 oval window Beetle. Basically I'm going for a dead on example of a C/Altered build from the 64-65 era, as per the NHRA rule books. The object is to build it not only to look the part but also to perform as they did in the 60's with the parts and building methods of the time. In other words the only off the shelf parts are hidden in the motor or were bought in the early to mid 60's. Its running a stroked 289 with Algon injection, a close ratio Toploader 4-speed, with a solid mounted and chopped down Edsel back 9-inch. The body is chopped,sectioned,shortened, and narrowed though its not as apparent as you'd think without another car to compare it to. All and all its a crude back to basics project that should spend more time sideways than going straight when it doesn't have the front wheels in the air but thats the point.
