Just over a year ago we brought you the film Low n’ Slow from Stephen Brooks. At first glance we thought these Bugs were those Bugs but come to find out, they are not. Equally impressive, the two ’61′s feature drastically different themes.
Lukasz went the way of the classic two-tone, which by-the-way was not a factory option on Type 1′s. Slapping on a 4″ narrow beam, adjusters, drop spindles and white-walled 145′s up front / 160 out back.
Paul kept the used daily driver look yet has a lot of TLC underneath as the pan etc. needed it. He went with a 5″ narrowed beam up front and pulled two notches out of the rear.
No word on engine work so we’ll go with stock.
*The “Bug” and “Beetle” are/were informal names. On paper, it was the Volkswagen Type 1 or simply Volkswagen for marketing etc.. On the road, it was called the Kafer which means Beetle in German. This stuck and Volkswagen has used it since.
