Started off as a class 11 job, coil overs and 7.00-15 tires. Wanted to make it a bit taller and put some more tire under it, so I stared the Lifted Beetle project which is now a lifted baja project, due to all the rust and dent issues and it not being a pre-68.
So I put it up on jack stands and started pulling parts!


I didn't know at the time that you could just reindex the rear so I found a buggy that had a good reduction trans with a JJS no hop kit installed and transplanted.


That gave me 3.5 inches of lift in the rear, so I went with the tweeds 3.5 lift spindles in the front.


I liked the full body look but there is too much nasty on it for me, and it would be costly for me to have all the parts shipped to me so I guess it is baja time!
That's an awful lot of fender clearance on a 30" tire guess ill be going bigger, will see after I set the spring plates back down a bit.



In the process of replacing the floor pans, rear luggage area, quarter panels and fitting the fiberglass pieces.
