Saw this today, and did a double-take. First glance thought it was a Fiero Kit car. Turns out to be an older VW kit vehicle.

Looks like a Saab Sonett.

Looks like an Italian stylized AMC Matador. It's pretty ugly.

Several things related to construction that I think needs to be corrected. Remove that exhaust and replace it with a Monza 4-tip exhaust. Move that gas tank from above the engine. Install a built dual port engine and a pair of Delorto or other carbs instead of that single barrel carb. That car needs all the power it can get to move that heavy body.

With a 39 HP VW engine , this car will work hard to get out of its own way. Its probably a 20 second 1/4 mile vehicle with anemic performance.

The latest single port head engines of the 60's had a little more HP than that. The 39HP version was in the earliest models imported to the US. The last Beetle engine was a dual port head design and was somewhat more powerful. The Replicars we built usually got an engine that had at least 90MM cylinders, a higher lift cam and dual carbs. The exotic Replicars were usually in the neighborhood of 110 HP when we delivered them.

I did a mild build on mine with bigger cylinders and a mild cam with a single 2bbl carb and it was at about 90HP. I don't think it was near as heavy as this Aquila appears to be.
