Well here is my new project. It popped up on craigslist and I happened to be the first person to call on it. They set up an appointment for me to come look at it the next day and I bought it after looking at it for 5 minutes. It has no engine, a type 1 trans, nicely done complete cage, aluminum dash and door panels, a Jaz fuel cell, fiberglass front end, window nets, poly seats with covers in great shape, aftermarket shifter, nice complete rewire job, only 2 small spots of rust that need to be repaired, Jackman wheels, rebuilt brakes and new rear tires.
Plans are:
engine-either EcoTec or 2.0 Type 4
3 rib bus tranmission
putting in all new glass
adjusting the doors
converting the balljoint front end over to the linkpin beam and raised linkpin spindles I've been building in the garage.
Beat the hell out of it!
I'm super stoked. And the best part!
$500!

Thanks! I'm super stoked on it. I just have to get out of this wheelchair after my motorcycle accident before I can start working on it!
Here are some more pics after having it delivered

NICE!!!! Looks like you've got a great base to start with. I love that hood. If I can't find a carbon fiber tilt, I'll end up going with one just like yours.

This is the engine I'm planning on, its a page out of Jake Raby's singleport Type 1 days

82x90.5
AS41 case reworked
single port heads with 37.5x35.5 valves
ported intakes with 1.25 rockers
Web 218 cam advanced 5 on the intake/218 exhaust
8.3:1 compression
reworked kads on custom singleport manifolds
vacuum distributor
1.5" trimil header
stock weight flywheel
The plan is for a wonderfully torquey engine that is a pleasure to drive and won't beat itself to death.
Trans will be a mildly worked over 002

For $500 it looks like you scored. That looks real nice. Can't wait to see what you do with it and I hope you get better fast.

Well I haven't been able to do much to the baja because I'm still stuck in this wheelchair. Some friends came over today and put some $8 harbor freight movers dollies under the tires so its at least easy to move around the garage.
