Hello all,
New to AZ Baja, I've had this for a while it's been a slow project. It's a 69 that was a roller I picked up for $500 with a complete core engine that turned out to be the original to the car. I'll be using my old 1776 from my bus in it. I got it running and tore up the neighborhood before I tore it down. I'll be adding some stripes, painting the roll cage, bumpers etc. and assembly! Trying to decide what tires I want to run.

Thanks everyone! I've been picking up parts from craigslist and shows for it since I bought it. Have just about everything to put it together so hopefully it'll go pretty quick!

It had to go back to the paint shop for a touch-up then I took it to an upholstery shop for a headliner. Once that's done assembly will start! Before I install the windows I'll be getting the stripes made.

Street legal today! She's not finished (will it ever be?) getting stripes later this week then I can install the quarter windows, mirrors are on the way, need seals to assemble the door glass, engine has been sitting for about three years so I've been working on getting everything tuned. Tires for the matching rear rims and new fronts soon too. The list is neverending!

Progress. I was trying to get stripes done by a graphics place, first one was screwing around and the next wanted an arm and a leg so I spray-bombed them myself. Running 30x9.5-15's in back with 215/75-15's out front.
