We love working on family heirloom VW restoration projects, and this has been a great one. Pippen’s Supervert has been in the family for generations, and it was well taken care of all those years. When the client brought this early 1973 Dub to Airkooled Kustoms, his dad thought he was crazy… he knew the restoration would cost more than the car cost way back when he originally bought it. The car showed up with not much rust, but a lot of parking lot dings.


This build is looking good. We’re building in air conditioning, an engine that’ll hum, and a juicy red stock paint finish.
