This could be ideal for a load of old beach buggies and the like. There is no question about the popularity of the classic VW Beetle. Over 21 million were made between 1938 and 2003.

With so many still around it’s worth uprating the car’s suspension to 21st century standards.

GAZ fully adjustable GT dampers are now available for the 1953-65 Beetle 1200 to enable the damping bump and rebound rate to be adjusted to suit the conditions and driving style.

These dampers have adjustable bump/rebound rates that can be altered by means of an easily accessible knob on the side of the units.

GAZ can set the dampers up for general road use, but they will also be suitable for occasional track slalom and sprint use; alternatively, they can even be set up for serious track use if you so wish.

GAZ dampers 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.

The GAZ GT dampers for VW Beetle 1200 retail from £77.44 inc VAT with further details from ENDS.
