1973 VW Super Beetle Baja

My most recent project is a 1973 Volkswagen Super Beetle Baja Conversion. I snagged this gem from the Asheville Craigslist for $350. The bundle included the following:

  • 1973 Super Beetle without seats, carpet or headliner
  • Transmission (seems good now – more on that later)
  • Off-road transmission mount
  • Side glass but no front or back glass
  • Right floor-pan to fill the current void
  • 4 Extra Wheels with 31 inch no-name brand tires
  • Gas Tank
  • Stinger Exhaust – Brand New
  • 32 Pict Carburetor
  • Duel Port Heads (seem good now – more on that later)
  • Duel port intake manifold
  • 4 clean connecting rods
  • 4 clean pistons
  • Cam Shaft
  • 009 Distributor
  • Coil and mount
  • Brand new chrome valve covers
  • Light Bar
