I MODDED MINE

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Living With Classics - PAUL JACK­SON-TURNER

Paul’s 1965 Bee­tle was reg­is­tered on the day he was born. He says: ‘My grand­fa­ther bought the car new and it passed to me 30 years ago. It al­most looks stan­dard but ac­tu­ally has 5.5in steel wheels, low­ered sus­pen­sion and a 1641cc en­gine fit­ted with a coun­ter­weighted crank­shaft, light­ened fly­wheel, twin 40 Dell’Orto car­bu­ret­tors and an up­rated camshaft. This is mated to a Free­way Flyer high-ra­tio gear­box for more re­laxed high-speed cruis­ing. I’ve also fit­ted front disc brakes.’
