This Story goes a few years back:
The year 1998 was written. Freddy’s lucky year began…
It should be the very special buggy. Only a Deserter GT came into question! Blessing in disguise, an engine fire started the fire in me! THANKS TO THE PREVIOUS OWNER
A cheap restoration was out of the question.
Since the body of the buggy has broken in, the floor assembly had to be adjusted.
A different kind of puzzle.
Measure twice, then cut and weld.
As if from a single source. Looks like licked.
Organ donation does not give it. Everything new once!
1998: All parts directly from VW from stock! Shock absorbers and steering vapors by KONI. Adjustable front axle by Puma.
At the time, Hi8 cassettes were in fashion, so there are only videos of the construction and painting.
Elephant feet don’t have to be. It should be the nipple lights. But how should the arrangement be? Freddy’s flash of inspiration.
Nice RECARO sports seats, but not the end product. You just sat too high.
Freddy didn’t want padding. That’s why it became a two-seater. At that time I had no kids 😉 Times are changing.
Die Motorenstory Volume I (TypI 44PS)
You start small. No solution for duration!
Finally – the first test drive. Like an orgasm!
Off to the lake – go swimming with Czechman. That’s why you build a buggy. Oh yeah!
Sunsets are romantic, but on this day it’s buggy in the foreground – sunset in the background.
These two men woke the deserter to life again.
Many thanks to Papá and Vincenzo.
Bigdick and litlle deserter on the street.
Die Motorenstory Volume II (TypI 1700ccm)
You will never be happy, a new engine has to be put in!
Type IV is irreplaceable, light, powerful and authentic.
Die Motorenstory Volume III
Small optimization on the Weber carburettors and exhaust manifold with double exhaust. Still not enough!
Die Motorenstory Volume IV (914er 1700ccm, Schleicher Nockenwelle)
Through a long translated gear were easy 180 km/h (111 mph) indoors, with 10 l consumption. Phenomenal!
Body adapted to the engine. Optics and power – simply brute!
Finally with the butt on the asphalt through the Porsche 911 seats. Concept: flat, wide – red, yellow.
Instruments from the Porsche 944 provide an overview. And a fire extinguisher is also there so that it doesn’t look like it did at the beginning.
Die Motorenstory Volume V (TypIV 914er 1800ccm)
Has not surpassed the predecessor…
Die Motorenstory Volume VI (GB 2000ccm)
Finally the desired torque. The 295 tires are now slicks.
Looks finished, but the end is not yet in sight. Rims, front apron and belt guides for the 959er harness belts follow. The route is the goal.
Hulk and little Deserter.
The asphalt splitters…
