Recommended Posts

hey guys!
im new to this, so go easy!
Being 15, its hard buying your first car. So many choices. But in the weekend, I scored a 1970's vw buggy, with a minter fibreglass body! for a steal of a price.  The motor is siezed, and the floor pan is non existant.. Heres what it got it as,

Currently after a complete vw beetle, for about 1k area. needs a good tidy floorpan, and a well running motor. 1500 would be nice. know of anything?
prefer lower north island, but anywhere in north island is cool, thanks!

things have starting getting pretty bare, with i being stripping it every day after school. finished school now, and just got the body off after getting out dr grinder on all those nasty body bolts.

Also notice the different front end? suspension setup etc. well, the body has been chopped too, that's why the bubbles are on top of the guards because the shocks sit up high. looking at putting a 1500 front end in, how it should be, and get the bubbles removed, and the fiberglass reshaped. i'll do this when i decide on painting it. Notice the lack of floor pan, the floor just fell out as i was dismantling it!
