1962 Right Hand Drive Sunroof Notchback, Show Winner!

This beautiful 1962 Right Hand Drive Sunroof Notchback is fresh off a First Place win recently at the VW Classic in Irvine, California.  It has been the subject of many feature articles in VW magazines Worldwide, a cover car, and has won multiple trophies including Best in Class as well as Best Engine. 

Some of the numerous features include beautiful Polar Silver paint, factory sunroof, professional right hand drive conversion, push button dash, incredible West Coast Classics interior, trophy winning dual carbed 1776cc engine from VW Paradise, Porsche Gas Burner replica wheels, Kustom Coach Werks 3 inch narrowed beam with CB Performance disc brakes, NOS bumpers, rare NOS 1962 Right Hand Drive dash pad, EMPI style wood rimmed steering wheel, Gene Berg performance shifter, European side marker lights, accessory popout windows, fully restored and detailed pan, all new rubber throughout, restored and replated hardware, the list goes on.  The approach was to build a full tilt show car and its numerous bits of recognition through magazine features and the long list of awards speaks for itself.

The body and paint is very nice and ultra clean.  It is finished in VW Polar Silver which compliments it very well.  The body is extremely straight, was completely bare metaled throughout during the restoration, and it is very very nice inside, outside, and underneath as well.  All of the work was carried out at Kustom Coach Werks of Grand Junction Colorado who have built too many beautiful show quality VWs over the years to count.  Their full-on approach has produced a extremely nice and thoroughly executed show quality Notchback.

The interior features a custom Brick Red theme and was stitched up by West Coast Classics of Fullerton, California.  A custom mohair headliner was also installed which is beautiful and tasteful.  During the build they located and installed an extremely rare NOS Right Hand Drive dash pad which looks great.  They also installed a custom Gene Berg performance reduced throw shifter with a custom Right Hand Drive KCW handle.  High quality oatmeal German square weave carpets were installed throughout including above the engine bay.  This Notch is extremely sterile in every corner and no detail has been left unaddressed.

Mechanically the car features a potent 90 horsepower 1776 cc engine with EMPI HPMX dual carbs, ported heads, Engle 120 cam with straight cut cam gears, custom Bugpack over the top header and muffler system, and it has been so well detailed that it has won trophies for Best Engine.  The transaxle is a fresh Rancho freeway flyer unit with heavy duty side plates and heavy duty axles.  The front end is a KCW 3 inch narrowed beam with CB Performance disc brakes and the rear are stock drum brakes which have been machined to the Porsche bolt pattern.  The stance is very low and looks great both standing still and out on the road.

This rare and early Notchback is hard to top and is being offered at a significant savings compared to what it would cost to build one to a similar level in the event that you could even find one.  It is fully dialed, super clean, and ready to enjoy.  Thanks!
