’71 917 Kit Car

When it came in, this car had experienced a little too much Arizona sun. We had a great time putting this one back together. Many interesting kit cars have been based on the VW Beetle pan, and we have had quite a few in the shop. A full mechanical restoration really brought this kit car back to life. Even better, it is really fun to drive.

Build included:

  • New paint and graphics
  • Upgraded motor with Porsche 911 cooling
  • Upgraded full coil over suspension and independent rear end
  • New American Racing center lug wheels and HUGE meats

Client has moved back east, but still has Doug’s do upgrades on this car. See our Out of State Clients page if you have more questions.
