Original paint, engine, brake drums, etc. I've owned it a long time, about 25 years and just started working on it so I can drive it around. I even have the original ad from when I bought it. I think I paid $1500.00 for it.
Check out the wheels I modified, no valve stems.
Nice bug. Reversed rims?......valve stems on the inside?
Yes, valve stems are on the inside. I changed the offset on the front wheels to move them in away from the fenders, and changed the offset on the rear wheels to move them out closer to the fenders. The fronts are 4.5", and the rears are 5.5". When I did this, I turned the rims around to put the valve stems on the inside.
