Iv'e been looking for a bug for a few weeks. I dont have the luxery or living in the southwest. So there pretty hard to find up here. I dont have a truck or trailer to pick one up. So today one poped up on CL only a few miles away from my house. Guess what? Its a super, I know I should probley stay away from it.

Is it possible to swap out the front suspension with linkpin? How hard would it be? Whats involved? Besides the curved windshield. Are there any other differences? Are the bodes the same? What would you guys do?

Thanks
Zack

the super beetle has a strut front end and you can not put a beam on the front without some serious fab...stay away from supers man. the struts have always sucked. i just baught one and took all the parts off it and sold the pan lol.

Yeah, I'd skip it. Keep your eyes open; be patient. Everything around here is super rusty, too, but after two months of DAILY checks of the classifieds and about 10 trips to look at tons of different cars, I finally found a great one. I just made sure I was the first guy there when the seller got off of work. No one else even had a chance to look at it before I handed her the cash, lol.

You can cut the front suspension out and weld on a king pin frame head, or hang the beam with tubes supported by the cage.

The hardest part is finding a hood or 1 piece to fit the super.

Here is a modified super. www.azbaja.com/ForumsP.../t=64.html

So all I would have to do is cut off the old frame head weld this new one in.

Its a little more involved than it looks, but essentially yes you can just replace te frame head with the one chirco sells and bolt in a link pin beam.

I'd recommend finding an OG frame head off of a donor car. I tried two of those aftermarket ones, and the beams wouldn't bolt to either of them properly (holes/threads not straight). I'm not bagging on Chirco AT ALL here, honestly. They refunded my money and treated me absolutely fine. I ended up re-using my old one.

You will still have to deal with the Michigan Cancer... "Rust"...

I don't know what your budget is... But I had my Baja shipped from Phoenix to my front door (48356) for $700...

They know how to build them out there...

I put on over 1k miles offroad last year and ran down I 75 @ 70+... Laughing

I would definately grab the 65. Run the VIN to make sure it is not stolen.
