This is in Burlington Wa, found it on my daily CL search.
seattle.craigslist.org...11740.html

Pricey, but I dig the paintjob. Lacks in tire clearance though!

The Swing-axle rear suspension (the other being IRS) will do that if you lift the car. When I lift my 68 on a jack to work on it, does the same thing. IRS won't but I know there is a way to make the swing-axle not do that either.

I love it! I've wanted to do one of those ever since seeing one back in the eighties. Don't have the heart to cut one up though, would have to find one that already has (preferably minimally). Cool

ya i couldn't do that. I like anything that's a Baja (insert air-cooled VW name here). The creativeness is cool and all, but I could never do that. I honestly wouldn't even cut a bug thats older then 68.

A note on some 68s though, mine is a BJ frontend with swingaxle. A 68 baja bug is kinda unfavorable I think. Think later 68s had IRS though.

Yep, I've heard of ball joint/swing axle '68s before. I imagine the year VW changed to BJ beams has a few of each type beam too.

It's IRS. Even an IRS setup will camber if you raise or lower it enough, It's not as pronounced as with a swingaxle, but if the pivots and arms are stock, it's gonna camber like a bad mofo as high as that baby is. (BTW, that's positive camber, Neg camber's when the wheel tops tip in, like on a lowered car).

I'd rock it.
