Its a 65 baja. Has a stock 1600 sp out of a 66 in it. Runs great. Has disc brakes on the front. The pan is rust free. Tires are great. The steering and suspension seems nice and tight. Body is solid. He wants $1500. I know a bit about cars, not much bout VW's but seems like a good price. Especially being a 65 here in Utah that means no emissions.

Its not perfect. Front bumper is kinda floppy, no big deal. Just needs a bolt. It has push button start. And the front seats are racing seats. Real nice seats but seem too big for the car. I might get use to them. I got to check my local law. If my 6 year old daughter can ride in the front, I'll keep the seats. If not. I'll have to find some stockers to give more room in the back.

I know the swing arm rear isn't the best for a baja. But being my first and also need this for daily driving dutys. I think it'll be fine for a while. So what's. Everybody's opinion on this car?

Seems ok. Kit fits kinda strange on the front end... like they didnt trim far enough for the nose piece. Definately gonna need some rear tires at least, but the 4wheel discs would be nice. What carbs are on that sp? I imagine the price is right on it?

The story behing the car is this guy bought it not too long ago for 2000 just basically for the engine. Its a 18something cc. He got it running and drove it for a while. Now he's putting his sp 1600 from his 66 street bug in it and the bigger one in his 66.

I'm just on the fence about it though. This one is already a baja. But its not complete. So do I want one like that or a stock bug that I can build the way I want when funds allow?

well, if your up for a full on project, buy a beetle and make a baja. If you want one that you can do a bit of work to, and play around in, find a pre-built baja (as long as it was done right) and rock it!

A full on project is a little much for me right now. My son was just born. This 65 may be a good start. Needs work but I can do it in parts.
