If you’re someone who loves VW bugs and Chevy engines, then this build is something that offers the best of both worlds for you. But it isn’t the only catch though, as this little ride has one cool and amazing feature that’s something you probably haven’t seen yet on a VW Bug.
What is it, you say? Well, how about a custom flip top that not only exposes the engine compartment but the whole drivetrain itself? Yes, this VW Bug has it! Unlike probably with other flip-top rides, the seat and interior of this car go up too leaving the running gear exposed. An already cool Bug was thus made way cooler by the addition of such mechanism. You surely can never expect less with what people’s ingenuity can bring.
This bug is fitted with a Small-Block Chevy 327 with T5 transmission sourced from a Corvette. And yes this one’s street legal having driven for over 300 miles just to attend the Mid America Street Rod Nationals, where it was spotted in the autocross.
