For Sale – Purvis Eureka F4 Custom

Shiralee has decided to sell her beloved Green Goblin.

It is an F4 built on a 1968 IRS chassis with a modified roof lift mechanism, modified rear guards, complete lift up rear panel and engine cover and modified dashboard as can be seen in the photos.
Other modifications include:
- 4 wheel disc brakes in VW stud pattern
- Wide 15 inch Performance Challenger mag wheels with new tyres
- 1916cc VW engine with twin Weber carbies and stainless exhaust
- Front mounted petrol tank
- Reversing camera
- 12 volt outlet for phone charging and the like

The paintwork is showing its age in several areas but as can be seen in the photos it still looks pretty good.

The car has been on the Victorian Club permit scheme since March 2020 and will be sold unregistered although it has previously been fully registered in both Victoria and New South Wales and has a NSW engineering report from 2010.

Shiralee has asked that all technical questions about the car be directed to me please. 0418 307 973

The car is in Traralgon Victoria.

Asking price - $23,500

Hi guys,
             I have a fair bit of experience with air bag installs. I asked my mate Brian at Probag (02 4261 3742) awhile ago specifically about an airbag setup for a reek when I was thinking about a system for mine. He said he has dedicated front and rear airbag/struts that bolt straight in and showed me pics of a radical chopped and channelled Beetle bottoming out on it's floor pan.

I do know there's enough room inside the side walls of a reek for a single or multiple 9 litre reservoir set up with as many pumps as you like, so this idea is easily possible.  As far as roof operation is concerned, you'd need an electrically operated two way valving system similar to an hydraulics system on a reek. Power up and power down. Once again, fairly common stuff and readily available from suppliers like Pirtek or Enzed.

Personally though I'd go with Linak lifters and a stand alone airbag suspension setup. I don't like the idea of both those critical systems failing at the same time.  

Are you still doing this? I need some assistance with my airbag installation. Not for free, of course. Send me a PM, please.

There is company in Qld called Traction that produce a Teslas battery based elctric conversion kit for over 30k.
It uses an adapter plate to attach to the VW to the existing gear box. Does not have great range, about 150Kms. but has outstanding performance.
I am contemplating putting a kit in my beetle based car.
30ΠΊ? That's a crazy price. It hasn't come down since 2021? And where exactly is the company located. Could you send me the contacts in PM?

Long way from Melbourne sorry. Up in Echuca.
I've been crook for a while so this one has taken a back seat.
Hope to finish it off when it gets a bit warmer.
Mostly happy with the project but there are things I'd like to do better.

Yes, it's a long way from Melbourne to Echuca.
Hope your project is progressing.

I'd like to see what you've got. My acquaintance tried to rebuild a similar car, but he gave it up. It needed so many new parts that it exceeded his expectations.
