My wife has finally put her foot down and my collection of VW Parts has to go, to make space on the drive. along with the SAD :( Red Beetle I have for sale, £500 (awaiting a cheque, but still available, if someone is keen) See the full thread in the Vehicle section.

I have a few other scrap yard items as people want to call my front drive.

I have VW Wizard Kit (from Chris Boyle) (unfitted) for sale which includes the tub, rear lid, windscreen surrounds, steel windscreen brace, hood, hood frame, hood front bow, roof side fixings, the steel brace behind the rear seat and the 2 one piece side windows. The hood, frame and a few other items are not shown in the photos:

£400

The FLOOR PAN was over braced with 2 x 1 box section steel, to prevent flexing when the unbraced body was added (it's not to everyone's taste but it works for me) this is available extra with the kit or sold separately.

£ ? Sensible offers

The remains of the BODY, BONNET, ETC., are going to the metal merchants if not required with the kit. This has been modified to take 2 Audi 100 radiators over the gearbox, so scrap really. Although donations to Pete's 50th Birthday fund gratefully accepted.

I also have 2 ALFASUD ENGINES for sale, from my unfinished (not really started) VW Wizard Roadster Kit. Dare to be different.

They are a 1500cc 95BHP Twin Carb engine £100
engine Number is: AS 301.28 - 0061059
The Haynes Manual states: 9.5 : 1 Compression, 95 BHP @ 5800 RPM

The engine has not been run for quite a while, I was planning on doing a complete rebuild on it, before it was finally fitted and started in the unfinished wizard. I may have a few gaskets and service items for it. It's shown without the alternator but I'm sure I have it and the other stuff stashed away somewhere in all the moving boxes we have in the shed. I would need to take the plugs out and see if it will turn over by hand (bit of oil or WD40 here I think, just in case). It's not got a dissy cap or plug leads looking at the photo, also the big inlet airbox is missing, was like this when I purchased it along with the VW to ALFA Adapter. I've got the 2 curved inlets for the top of the carbs. I also purchased off ebay a pair of used chromed air filters for it. It's got a rusting exhaust on it so you may need one of those, they exit underneath, not front to back as a Beetle does.
Even as a none runner, I think the twin carbs are worth the asking price, just on their own. I will have to check but I'm sure they are Twin Weber 36 IDF's. (Don't think they are Dellorto DRLA 36 Carbs, but I may be wrong, so long since I've looked. Lost most of my notes since moving to Bristol from Manchester 3 years ago)

and a 1200/1300cc Single carb engine £50
(not sure of the size of the smaller one as I've not looked at the engine code.:
http://s149.photobucket.com/albums/s73/vwroadster/For Sale/AlfaSud Engines and Adaptor/

There is a VW Gearbox to AlfaSud engine ADAPTER shown mocked up with the gearbox photos, this comes with the Adapter plate, wider flywheel and fixing nuts, bolts washers and studs. (checked the instructions and all seems there) £150

I have a 1300 VW Gearbox 1971 vintage with new gaiter kit. £65

Cheers, Pete.
So much stuff too little time.
If you require any further information (PLEASE ASK) I can be contacted on 07951 117533 or [email protected]
May deal on the price of the engines and adapter if someone wants to purchase them together.

EXTRA ON THE ENGINES
I've never had any of the engines running since buying them, hence the rebuilding comment, before final fitting.

The fitting is quite straight forward.
Bolt the adapter to the engine, 6 bolts, for the flywheel to the crank, fit a 200mm clutch, then fit to gearbox. Make a cover for the Alfa starter hole and use the VW starter in it's original position. The overhead cam covers interfere with the sides of the body bumper hangers so these need to be altered/adapted. You will have to clearance the sides of the body where the bumper irons fit (maybe remove them first, fit the engine, then work out how to re fabricate the bumper hangers, making sure the flange fittings for the wings are sorted)

The next problem is sorting out the throttle linkage, this is small in comparison to the water cooling and the position and ducting of the radiators. I mocked up 2 Audi 100 radiators to fit above the gearbox, with twin Allegro fans on one of them, with the option of taking one out of the loop if one was sufficient in cooling the engine. This would draw air from a scoop underneath the gearbox and exit under the rear wings. This all being in an enclosed box underneath the rear deck of the wizard. One bloke in Manchester had a similar engine fitted to a wizard but had the radiator mounted where the rear bulkhead should have been and this was feed by scoops on the side rear quarters. You would then have to work out the electrics for the coil and alternator and a feed for the fuel. (Simple really)

I'm interested in the steering wheel and boss in this picture if you want to split it?! And also maybe the gauges, depending on what make they are?



If you could get a photo of it front on that would be cool!

:)

Hi Bobkat (Bob), Thanks for calling, I will hold the adaptor for when we can arrange pickup. I'm hoping to go to VOLKSFEST (Wraxall, near Bristol), June 9th/10th as it's only a few miles from where we live.

If you are going to that maybe we can arrange something, anyway you've got my number. Regards, Pete.

Hi Beetlecharles, Thanks for the interest, but I would like to sell it in one piece (YES I know it's not) as a restoration project. Once someone has bought it then they can decide what they want to do with it (Strip or Repair). This has to go as ONE ITEM to stop the grief I am getting regarding moving them on, a promise I made after buying the PINK Wizard I now own:

There is a more full on photo (steering wheel) at the link:
http://s149.photobucket.com/albums/...e%20for%20Sale/
Pic 82, it does not have an extension boss like a lot of steering wheels, which caused the right stalk to be modified as it interfered with the spokes. I am waiting for a cheque to arrive for the car, the buyer assures me it will arrive soon, so I am edging my bets in case the sale falls through. Sorry I can't help in splitting the Red Beetle. All the Best, Pete.
