If you own a 1967 to 1979 Beetle or Karman Ghia or Thing or Dune Buggy, you will not find a better professionally rebuilt engine than this one. Selling locally in the Houston area, or with gasoline money will deliver it to your address, within 200 miles distance from Hitchcock, Texas. Look it up. Six month/ 6000 written warranty of parts and labor, if I install it or it is professionally installed by someone who knows what they are doing on the old Beetles. Can be used also in early model 1960's Bugs if you grind out the bell housing to allow use of the 200mm - 12 volt teeth flywheel. Price does not require any exchange engine or core charge. Price includes good ceramic coated sedan four-into-one header and SS muffler and new J-tubes. No heater boxes, but you can install heater boxes and replace the J-tubes, if you must have heat in the winter time. Includes all new clutch parts, so engine is complete and ready to be installed. If you bring your car to my shop, located in Hitchcock, Texas I will install the engine for no added cost. Nobody has an engine built this good for this price. You can find poor quality parts used in most rebuilds and no clutch or exhaust systems and they want core charges and shipping cost, so please do not insult me with telling me, you can find one , this good, for less money. If so, buy it !! Engine can be seen and heard, before you pay me, on my custom made engine start up stand, another thing, most people cannot do, as they have no way to start up their engine and let you see and hear them run. This is a 1641cc dual port engine with new alternator. Just look at the photos and see the amount of new parts used in this rebuild. Pistons are Mahle. Heads are Autolinea , cleaned and valve job done and they look new. The case is equal to the type one case used from 1973 and 1974, made in Germany. It does not have the three threaded holes for use in the type two buses. On use in a dune buggy, I do have some good dune buggy dual exhausts and will have them sand blasted and high heat painted. The photos show exhaust for use in the Beetle or Karman Ghia or think it will work in the Thing. Estimated horsepower should be at least 65. All engine moving parts are race balanced. CASH only. No trades. If you do not need the exhaust or clutch parts, I can reduce the price to only $2500. If you phone me I do not have caller ID, so you must say your name, phone number and message to my answering machine. Otherwise, I cannot return your call. Hitchcock, Tx. is located only 35 miles South of downtown Houston, Texas.
