Hello All,

I purchased a new project today and didn't get divorced! I knew she was lying!

I picked up a 1970 type 1, that came with almost enough extra parts to complete 2 1600 motors, and two spare webbers. it is pretty free of rust/rot with a good interior and dual webber setup on the motor which is in it. It is not running now (carb fire, melted wires). It has a dinged up fender, but who cares since it is short lived being a Baja candidate. I gave the guy 600 for the whole package.

How'd I do?

Now I need some direction on where to begin?

600? for parts for 2 motors, and a seemingly solid shell? Good by my standards! Welcome to the site!

Before you do anythin, decide what you want out of your baja. Mine is honestly a street baja that sees mud from time to time, but you can go full race, streetable off road, all around balanced, etc.

What do you plan on doing with it? Sand, mud, rocks? If your gonna do one specific thing for it (say flat sandy trails for example) you could go longer trailing arms, big power, and mid-to-higher range gearing.

Figure out what you want, do your research, then BUILD! lol
