It's the best looking one,by far...

What color is it?

The color on mine looks simalur in the pictures.
Mine is painted Arizona Turquoise ... A 1962 Dodge Truck color

(sorta)

I don't know what color it is, specifically. I had the color matched from a Snap-On toolbox my buddy had. It's green during the day, and blue at night. I'd like to get some better pictures soon. I just need a better background, and need to do some more work to it to get the bugs out.

ever wonder when the day will come(if not already here)that people will buy oval bajas to restore? new frt/rear clips etc....ever had any offers from somebody with that idea?
I recall HotVW's doing a big article on a black baja convert(59?)that a guy in Phx or Tempe bought and restored to stone stock.

Nope. I've never had anyone offer. Mine is far beyond the restoration stage. There's really nothing left of the '57 part of it, except the candy coated shell on the outside.

I don't think there are enough oval bajas out there to try and find one to restore. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'd think there's probably only a handful that still exist. They're a monument to a time that has long-since passed.






For the record, mine was already hacked when I got it years ago!

No problem here with somebody cutting a oval, heck even a split if that floats your boat. I'm just still shell shocked at what early stuff is bringing, especially busses. I parted out a 61/62? don't recall 23 window in Idaho circa 89, rusted, cut, did I say rusted? it was bad, but all the glass and chrome was there, even the slider. Nowadays I could easily get 3-4 grand for it. Sheesh. But I do think the time will come when somebody will inquire about your oval body. Is the dash cut?

The dash is hacked. I cut the dash completely out of it years ago and built my own out of sheet metal....

I know I have seen that color before. All our non copper contamination snap on tool boxes at work are that color.

These 6 gauge billet dash bezels are getting hard to find now. They used be on every corner. Yes... They are all VDO. I have the speedo on the left, along with oil temp, oil pressure, battery voltage, and fuel. In the center, it is a VDO tach from an early 70's Porsche 914. It's a hair bigger than the hole in the dash, but it easily fits with a bit of trimming. It matches fairly well with the other gauges, and I still stick with the German theme. They made them with black centers for the needle, and with silver. I got a black one. Make sure you get one for a 4-banger!

There's a silver one on Ebay right now:

Ebay 914 Tach




...And Az...

Does this mean my bug isn't copper contaminated? I suppose that's a good thing.
