the yellow one im working with is the best of the bunch....and it needs alot of work,i just wanted the 1 and the old lady said "you gotta take them all" so i ended up with a 71' standerd,71' super,73' super,68' standerd,73' standerd,65' standerd,63' standerd,61' standerd,and 2 that i couldn tell a thing about.....old/wrekd/rusted,and a 59' that didn even make it home.i have sold the rest of them over the past cuple weeks....so once i decided to build another bug i drug this one up from the pasture below my house used the arc welder to cut the front and back off it then went to town on the tear down.

picked up the engine i will be using for tha bug..its a 88' TBI 2.5L 4 cyl. outa a s-10 and i only had to give $40 for it and he used his tractor to pull it out...don't know anything about it an neather did he,but it has nice clean looking paint on the back of the engine where the flywheel is,has new freez plugs,new dizzy cap,and u can tell that it has had the pan,water pump,and intake/exuast off because there are new seals/gaskets.....so hopefuly this means it has been rebuilt in the not so distant past....but im gunna drop the pan,and pull the head to see what kina shape its really in,i'll post pics of the lil' 4 banger when its light out.

Does it turn the right way for a VW install? Is there a Kennedy adapter available for it?
