early volkswagen front end

Hey,
Has anyone any experience or info. on using an early volkswagen adjustable front end for a t-bucket. I saw a pic of one but couldn't make too much detail out. Just wondered if it would work well.

Try searching out some of the Volksrods of the 70's, The twin torsion bar works for a lightweight front end but isn't heavy enough to support a V8 for any length of time.

That would be my last choice of front end on a T-Bucket. I love V-Dubs and have a VW powered T-Bucket but the front end is a tube axle.
