I've been interested in getting a Bug for quite awhile to use out in the Mountains around here in Southern Az. This site and a couple others have been a wealth of information. Well I finally found a bug that seems it will work out. Not to mention it was a pretty good deal. Its a 71 standard has electronic ignition installed on a 1600 engine. This will definitely be a learning experience.
Oh yeah it came with a backseat full of parts

New carpet kit
Pop out windows
extra door window glass
numerous tail light housings
wheel brake cylinder
new valve cover gaskets
extra valve covers
6 hubcaps some all chrome, some with the black center
new clutch cable
new throttle cable
and others

it was supposed to have new brakes but oh well cant get everything
After talking with a friend of mine he convinced me to leave it stock and if I damage the front or rear then cut it and Baja it. So its going to be setup as a Class 11 type for now and who knows what later.
Hopefully the pics come out right

edit: hopefully these pictures came out right












right now it needs ball joints, brakes, tie rod ends, bigger tires and dirt, lots and lots of dirt Very Happy

Welcome to the forum. An oil temp guage, oil cooler and filter will make the 1600 live longer.
