That '64 Notch

I've wanted one since I was 16 years old. I first set eyes on this one in 2014 and missed out on it while it was for sale. I followed it over the years till its last owner and always kept in touch. I attempted to purchase it a few times and then finally I got the message saying he needed to sell and to come and get it! That was early 2020 just before the first Covid-19 lockdown. Though I couldn't test drive it due to the brakes failing and me recovering from ACL surgery I still took the plunge! Once I collected it got it tucked into the garage and I could work on it while recovering.

All brakes were renewed, inc brake lines, the fuel system cleaned and hoses replaced. The engine was serviced, floor pans cleaned up and painted! I found a nice set of wheels which hadn't been fitted to a car so bought them and lowered my Notchback. Bar that I've just cleaned my VDub up and made it a nice place to be inside. At the first show I took it too it came away with a top 10 award, which I was really chuffed about. Late last year the bottom end decided to start knocking on the motorway while on route to a swap meet. So it's currently in the garage with no engine in it. I'm rebuilding the 1600cc twin carb from my Fastback to go into it, so it should be a big difference from the original 1500cc single carb!
