I am new to the site. I am building a one-off Baja. I have been around V-Dubs all my life. I am in the process of building my Baja. The chassis is a 78 Bus(Type2), body is a 71 Super with front end cut off, engine is 85 Golf diesel, Trans is 78 Bus with 82 Vanagon diesel bellhousing. I am using extra wide Porsche Fuchs, stock front Bus brakes, but redrilled to fit Porsche pattern, stock rear Porsche 911 brakes, 35x12.5x15 tires, 911 dash section. I will be running 2 fuel tanks. I am building the tilt front end using the original wide eye baja kit. I should have the Bus finished with the cutting by Friday and ready to set the Beetle body on it to start marking off for final cuts. I will be getting the Beetle chassis ready to sell. 68 with 74 IRS and front Ghia disc brakes. Very solid chassis. I am looking for old style Geist roof scoop.

Welcome to the site. That is quite an ambitious / unique project. A build post with no pictures makes my imagination work overtime. Smile

Naahhh....it's been done. Here is mine:

Here is a link to the build: www.thesamba.com/vw/fo...mp;start=0

Sorry about the hi-jack. Your project sounds great. There was a Baja on a bus chassis in my area back in the 80's. It was a beast...
Good luck.

I love the diesel in a baja bug idea! I'm looking forward to following this build.

Also, greenehoosier Your bug looks great! Can you let us know how you put a diesel in it? Specs and pics would surely help.
