I know for a 1959 VW Bug for sale its in good shape all it needs is to be put together. Would this be any good to build a baja out of? is there anything that I should look out for on it? and also if its no good for a baja what would I have to do to make it a good one?

www.nlclassifieds.com/...les/101036

Thanks!

one thing about it is a king pin front end and thats what I want, And if the engine is small I can swap for the engine in my dunebuggy "1974 1600 dual port" and I have another 1974 tranny kicking around

If its a 59 and not wrecked, you will have a lot of purists bashing on you for cutting that sucker up. BUT, you could probly find someone willing to trade you a baja for the 59. That would be your best route. I did that exact thing, had a 67 in decent shape, I didnt want to cut it up, so I traded it for a baja. We both walked away happy and both got what we wanted.

oh- and MY '59 was cut many many years ago, LONG before I acquired it. I'm FAR from being a "purist", but permanently maiming a straight, classic body is a bummer. Find a beater and go crazy on it!

Now- I realize that a) solid bugs are probably hard to find where you're at, and b) it is YOUR property, and you can do whatever you want to it.


have fun!

Ya I don't think I should get that 59, its in too good of shape for a old bug..i guess I will have to keep looking. Vws around here are hard to get. I know for a couple but they are like brand new and the owners want $$$.

Tonight I will post a build up of my Dunebuggy. as requested by "joxracing"
