Customer Rides – Dickie’s ’69
Dickies 1969 Razor Edge Limebug-Equiped Type 34
Oozing with class and style, Dickies Razor has rapidly gained popularity in the UK Aircooled scene. Originally being shown off at the prestigious Volksworld Show in 2021, many showed their appreciation of the build, labelling it ‘the coolest razor i’ve ever seen in my life’. Dickie followed on from this great reception to getting the car featured on the cover of Hayburner Magazine – A sought after achievement for sure…
So you may be wondering, what are the details? When it came into his hands, Dickie’s Razor was nicknamed ‘The Rusty Razor’. Once the shell had been removed, Tony sent this chassis (with engine and gearbox attached) over to ourselves. To begin the work, we tackled the suspension setup. Wanting to increase the sleekness of the Razor’s lines, we added our Full Deluxe Air Suspension Kit. Featuring our most popular parts such as the MOA430 and Cantilever Kit, this system was a must-have on the build. Now sitting as low as possible, we moved onto managment. Choosing to mount his system in the passenger foot well, we provided Tony with a Universal Mangement Cradle. This Cradle can be mounted on any flat surface, and keeps you Tank/Compressor/Manifold neat and tidy. To ensure the system was fast and easy to use, we fitted Dual 44c Compressors, and Airlift 3P. This ensured quick tank refill times, with PSI accurate adjustment.
Moving on from the Suspension, much improvement was needed in other areas of the vehicles driveability. Wanting to cruise his Razor around London and visit the occasional Car Show, Dickie cut no corners in his everlasting parts list. Starting with the gearbox, we provided and fitted a Freeway Flyer long ratio box, to help with economy at higher speeds. Paired with a light refurb accross the major engine components, reliability was certain to better than it’s predecessor. To complete the build on our end, we fitted a Full Willwood Brake System to the car. Not only did this help improve the feable standard stopping times, but it also added another great feature; to a build so deeply focused on the smaller details. Now complete with 16″ Fuch and a full Spikes’ body refurb, Dickie’s Razor will continue to look excellent for years to come.
