    Sorry to see Your Type III burn..
    I always have that fear with mine.

    Daddio, it looks like a Squareback or fastback that was cutoff to be a roadster, but can't be 100%.

    Wow that engine looks amazing, and VW looks devastating. A friend here in NZ has a wagon version, pretty sweet car

    Stefan, I know you probably have enough connections, but if you need anything for the Type III, let me know.. I have a bit of a stash that I keep around for all my VWs... it's also a distance to ship, but let me know.

    Can you post a pic of the taillights for that VW? I have a set of taillights from a VW I bought at a swapmeet I am thinking of using in a build that are really cool, they look like they would fit in that car of yours that burned. I have never seen any like these and wondered what they came from. Jim

    OK, in the last link the 4th pic down looks like the taillights I have other than mine are completly red, no yellow on them, all red with the chrome trim, really nice for a car with a slight fin on the rear, I think they will really throw people off when I find the right car to build around them LOL, thats pretty bad when I buy a set of taillights for 5 bucks at a swapmeet and now I am searching for the car to fit them into to make them look just right, I know there is a car out there just begging to have these as a custom treatment! Thanks for the help in identifying them! Jim

    Cool, thanks for the info! So since you have a shoebox tell me what you think of this, I am thinking of flatening the windsplit on the side of mine, extending the 1/4's a bit and putting these taillights on my car, how do you think they would look since you likely have a set sitting around you can hold up to your car and kind envision.

    Holley looks a lot better, but if you're like me and tuning a carbs is regarded as PFM you might be better off with the Edelbrock.

    How good are your tuning skills, Stephan? I personally like the Holley for ease of set-up, but SU's or Webers would look badass. An inline Autolite would be killer but they are hard to find and worse to find parts for here in the states, probably impossible in Europe.
