***Please note, this Baja has never been raced, jumped or in sand. I have only used it for a sunny day driver and to take to car shows. It has never been driven in rain. The undercarriage is spotless... The Baja now has only 1500 miles, all of those miles were to car shows or short drives to keep every thing in good working order.
1967 Baja. First place winner at the biggest VW car show in the North West. The build was started in the mid eighties by the original owner and I completed it in 2011 after I purchased the bug. I bought the Baja with only 60 miles on it. that's right.... It was only driven 60 miles from 1985 to the time I bought it in 2011. Custom built 1835, custom ported and polished heads. The motor has all the best parts... This was a spare no expense, money is no object build. Weber carbs, custom intake, built bus transmission, MSD ignition, K&N filter, K&N sand filter, custom oil cooler, complete custom cage, king pin suspension, adjustable Fox gas shocks up front with remote reservoirs, custom built tubular front suspension that ties in to the full roll cage and rear engine cage. Custom hand built wiring harness, four adjustable nitrogen Fox shocks in rear with remote reservoirs. Sway Away swing arms, custom modified. Custom heavy duty racing axles. Original mint Sand Blaster tires front and rear (99% tread). 5 point racing seat belt harness driver and passenger. Way too many modifications to list. This baja is set up for racing or baja competition. Hundreds of hours went into this build over a 28 year period... This baja is a throw back to the eighties with all period correct parts. With under 1500 miles to date on this baja, I guess you can say its the true definition of a time capsule as well...
Paint and body- This was a complete bare metal, pan off rotisserie repaint to show quality. The under carriage was fully painted and detailed and is spotless. No expense was spared. The wing windows were removed and replaced with a sold piece of glass. This Bug has never had any rust as the build was started in the mid 80's and started with a completely rust free car. Custom professionally built full roll cage front to rear, and tubular front suspension.
Interior- Mint original racing seats, very comfortable. Full 5 point racing harness. Full custom VDO gauges. ( oil pressure, oil temp, clock, volt meter, tach, speedometer, gas gauge). Racing toggle switches for all electrical accessories. All interior panels are aluminum. Nice white vinyl head liner.
Other- Custom built aluminum gas tank. The filler has been relocated and was frenched in for a clean factory look. Original Jackman 2 piece racing wheels. Original Sand Blaster (made in the 80's, these are not made any more). The tires in mint shape as it was always stored on jack stands in doors. The tires have no cracking ect. 99% tread. I have been offered $3,000 for the tires alone. Original KC lights up front. Racing gas, clutch, and brake pedal assembly. Brand new Optima battery. Racing aluminum steering column, with vintage VW racing steering wheel. Removable window nets.
Motor and Transmission- Custom built 1835, custom ported and polished heads. The motor has all the best internals and parts. Weber carbs, custom intake, MSD ignition, K&N filter, K&N oil breather (sand filter), custom remote oil cooler mounted inside the cab mounted to the roll bar. Tri Mill Exhaust. I also have a removable flow master muffler that mounts to the tri mill set up. The transmission was completely rebuilt using a bus transmission perfectly geared for the 31 inch Sand blaster tires (custom gear ratios). Race Empi short shifter with reverse lock out. All lines are steel braded using custom anodized threaded connections. Original Race tech finned aluminum valve covers.
I never had any plans of ever selling this Baja. It is one of a king and a blast to drive. This has been in my car collection for the last 5 years. It is featured on my web site and mentioned in Hot VW magazine. Make no mistake this is a full race show car. The build was started in the mid eighties and not finished in till 2012 after I purchased it. When I bought the car it only had 60 miles on it, it now has 1500 miles and has never seen rain, sand or any racing. This Baja has all period correct parts as it was built back in the day. One of a kind Baja. All work was done by the best of the best in the VW industry. I was told it had over 15k in 1980's money invested in the build, take inflation into consideration and it gives you an idea of the build quality... I am regretfully selling as it hardly gets driven. Although I have tried to be through in my description, there is much that has been left out as this was a custom one off build.
