hey, yeah im new. Im 17 and live in NY. I'm trying to get my hands on a bajabug for my frist car hehe ive found one in FLORIDA (grr) that needs an engine, axles, and lights. those are no biggy. its a 1973 baja beetle
irs tranny that has been hard mounted for off road use, Front and back steel tube bumpers, The cowl for the oil cooler that mount under the rear window. ( not shown in pictures), has a ball joint front end with new shocks, and disk brakes, New front window and all new glass gaskets, cloth seats, original fenders






What i plan to do is drop a dual port 1600cc VW engine in it with an off-road comp. single exhaust system. Big ole knobby tires and some nice rims. roof scoop for good taste and a nicely shaped cowel. i might cut the fenders back...might.

whatcha think?? not bad for a first car? hehehe Twisted Evil

welcome to the forums, you can find anything you wanna know and if you can't just ask. cool to see more young people into baja's, i'm 18.

oh, but what do you mean by hard mounted?

and make sure to post pics of your ride and what you're doing to it.

If your gonna take it into the woods up in NY I wouldnt go with a roof scoop. One good branch and that thing is gone. Are there any stock bugs around you, if so get one Baja it yourself, and drive it while workin on it.

WELCOME TO ARIZONA BAJA!

THE FIRST AND LAST PLACE YOULL HAVE TO ASK QUESTIONS Very Happy


the car looks to be in good shape. Florida is a smidgen of a drive from NY. wouldnt a vw tow bar be easier and cheaper when towing? less weight to pull.


since you desire to retieve one from florida, you could always come to AZ and shop at Bugzyllas'! Very Happy

hey there, welcome to the sight. the only other thing that I would like to add you need to do witht he baja. Is clean of the under area's and have the thing super under coated. On the salt ir from floida is a kill to vw metal. Then in the winter months the salt of your roads won't be as trecherous, to the car.

I I fully agree with the lack of the oil cooler on the roof.

Again Welcome.
