Original condition, unrestored 1966 Miller-Havens Baja Bug! Straight from SoCal, This 1966 Bug is just as it was when this original Miller-Havens Baja kit was installed, circa 1970. The Miller-Havens kit was the one that started the Baja Bug craze when it was first sold in 1969. This bug is rust free, and reportedly even spent part of it's life in Baja Mexico! I am the third owner, and bought it from the neighbor of the original owner who both still live in the Newport Beach California area. This bug's engine and transmission are reportedly in original, unrebuilt shape as well. The car even still retains it's original 6-volt electrical system! Note the custom made air cleaner and Carello roof-mounted fog lights! This is a true Southern California time capsule.
