A miracle. Supers are strut cars and a beyotch to convert. If the stroker motor's good, get the car and part it for the motor and trans. They'll drop right into a torsion beam pan car, which is what yer gonna want to start with

Super bugs have a 1” stretch in the front sheet metal (door frame forward) from 71-73.5 after 73.5 they had a curved windshield. If you are looking at a flat windowed super and cut away the front sheet metal from the door pillar forward then put in a frame to support the axel beam, I think you would have the start of a baja. Just my opinion and some work for you.

If you are gonna get a super, plan for at least $500 to convert it over to LinkPin.

To baja a super, you really only have two options - both are alot of work.

First, cut off the head at the pan, weld in a LP frame head and build it to a normal LP front end - this will require some addition supports added, IE cage.

The other option, is to use the super's front supports and build up an A-arm front suspention.....This option will cost a lot more $$$, but be pretty nice. I wouldnt mine trying it....
