Aggressive, affordable, and really cool, a Baja Bug like this 1963
Volkswagen Beetle is going to be a lot of fun for little money,
both on the street and trail.
A Baja Beetle is always a cool sight to see. These took the tough-as-nails image of the VWs and wears it like a badge of honor. The new fiberglass front end w/ribbed hood, contrasting white clipped fenders, and short rear panel have the unmistakable look of a mean machine. Large 15-inch white wheels match the new fenders, and they look great as part of a lifted suspension package. No one will mistake this for the standard Bug.
Inside, buckets seats borrowed from third generation Mustang does a nice job of matching the red interior paint, and more importantly, they give you better comfort and bolstering than the standard VW seat ever could. While a Volkswagen already built a strong body, this Beetle has been enhanced for off-road duty. That's why you get good features like the roll cage and steel three-spoke steering wheel to give you reinforcements where you need them the most. But beyond being strong, this VW doesn't loose its original charm that comes from grabbing the thin shifter and keeping an eye on the big VDO gauge in the artful dash panel.
The engine on a Baja Bug is worth the price of admission all on its own. The 1500cc motor hangs off the cut rear end like an angry beast that doesn't want to be confined. This is only backed up by the tubular cage, and header package that looks like a den of snakes. Plus, the Bugpack muffler adds some burly tones to the iconic air-cooled clatter. Beyond this rough appearance is the reliable flat-four heart we all love in a Beetle. The four-speed manual transmission means maximum control and maximum fun, and the lifted suspension completes this rough-n-ready attitude.
All Beetles were created equal, but only some were modified for pure enjoyment like this. So when a turnkey smile machine is this affordable, you know you have to act fast. Call today!!
