Hey Zyla!! Did I read you correctly? Type IIIs have splined t-bars in the front beams that can be indexed - as in no cut, turn, and weld?! And disc brakes too? Will they fit into a '68 or later Baja, more specifically one with a sheet metal front structure - as in non tubed - without a lot of surgery?

They do have splined torsions and disc brakes, but they wont bolt up to a t-1 without alot of work. They are kinda heavy too.

that what your talking about or more of a fast back

Nice car. I have seen one here in Mexico that is completely off-road. But sorry on pics.
The square back here is called the Brazilia. I like the idea of this body on a 4x4 chassis. I presume the engine fits where the trunk would be?
