alright guys i found this bug on criags.

fortwayne.craigslist.o...33656.html










i called and she said she was having another guy restore it but he lost interest and moved away so its just in parts in her garage.
it doesnt hav a engine, she said it has all the internal parts but no case...not a problem cuz i was planning on buying another engine anyway.
brand new pans, side boards, and tires.

It's a good deal, but I think it's a Super (pain to make into a Baja).
It would make a great street bug tho.

just because of the year doesnt mean its a super. check it out. if it has a beam then your good for whatever, if it has struts than your limited to a street car. unless you have alot of cash than it could be a baja also.

alright i set it up and were going to get it tomorrow morning!
i called her and she said that the windshield is completely flat, so that means its a normal right??

my grandpa is going to get this baja for parts.



its free so im going to use the rims and the baja kit, and anything else i need off it.....for free!!!

should be pretty awesome.

Not necessarily. Do like Cole said and check the front suspension. That "parts" Baja doesn't look half bad, either. Is it rusted out?

ya its pretty rusted and almost all the wiring has been taken out.
on the outside it looks pretty good but my grandpa said that when you pop the hood it looks pretty wrecked, i think the guy used it as a parts car for his baja and he kinda ripped all the stuff he needed from this one.
but the rims and baja kit are still good so for free we couldnt pass it up.

im hoping so bad that its a normal cuz i want to baja it really bad!

ill post some more pics when i get home with it.

dude either way it is a pretty good deal
also check the front suspension before you start cutting to make sure it is a regular bug first...
good luck
