Type 65 Coupe-R Complete Kit: $22,990

The Type 65 Coupe-R is the complete kit version of the Type 65 Coupe, but made for competition. The kit gives you everything you need to build your car, in one big package. The only things you’ll need are the engine/transmission/rear end, wheels/tires, and a paint job.

The largest difference is that the Coupe-R comes with a competition cage chassis powdercoated in white. It also comes with the 3-link deluxe rear suspension standard, stiffer springs, leather-covered competition steering wheel, and solo aluminum racing seat. Changes are noted in red.
