It has never been in an accident and there is no rust to speak of. The seller bought the car from the original owner who flew down to Brazil to buy this off the dealer show room in 1976.

In 1976, only 100 cars were produced for 1976 and this car was the 1st built for the 1976 production run. These SP2 cars were built exclusively for the Brazil market. There are only 2 examples believed to be imported to the United States. Production ended due the debut of the Porsche 924.
From the factory, the VW SP2 was given a Larger Bore 1678 Displacement Engine and Larger Carburetors. There was also a Special Cam Shaft Designed for the VW SP2. This VW SP2 came from the Factory with a 4-Speed and Front Disc Brakes, Full Gauges with a Tachometer also. The seller was not satisfied with the faded and cracked original paint so he did a new show quality paint with the same factory color. The seats have alaso been redone in leather. The Door panels are still original and the door shut nicely.

1970 Kelmark GT
Spotted in Mesa, Arizona is a 1970 Kelmark GT For $5,900.   I have never seen a fully functioning and driveable Kelmark so this is pretty interesting.  I have always wanted to drive one.   It is based on a VW tube chassis and close to being finished.  It has a turbocharged VW Engine with fuel injection.    The seller has put on new tires already but the interior will need to be finished. Would you want to own one of these?  Post your comments!
