Winter’s almost here and by now many kitcars will be tucked up in their garages undergoing a seasonal refurb.

So, it’s a good time to advise Beetle-based kitcar owners (1300cc or 1500cc) about these new GAZ adjustable GT. They are fully adjustable and enable the damping bump and rebound rate to be adjusted to suit the conditions, load and driving style.

The adjustable damping rates can be altered by means of an easily accessible knob on the side of the units. GAZ can set these dampers up for general road use or for serious classic racing if that’s your preference.

They feature a zinc-plated body and protective plastic sleeve to keep them looking good and working well for long into the future. All units are individually tested before leaving the factory and are covered by a two-year warranty.

GAZ rear dampers for the 1300 and 1500 Beetle can be ordered as GT6-2303 at £87.14 inc VAT and front dampers are part number GT6-2302, also at £87.14 inc VAT.

These part numbers will fit 1300 & 1500 Beetles from 8/1965 to 1979 and all Karmann Ghia models with a swing axle (1302 and 1303 models use a different part number – also available from GAZ).
