Look at this Baja Bug Spec, a conversion of 1970’s Volkswagen Beetle which was converted some years back. Lot of time & money was invested on the conversion, as its build cost was far greater than the original asking price of the Bug. Looking like brand new, this Bug hasn’t been used much and never went off-roading. The Bug’s suspension, is seriously over-engineered and the massive 2110 CC VW motor runs functional A/C as well, these are some of the high level attention given to detail in this build. You can buy this build for $17,900 in Riverside, California at oldbug.com.

Volkswagen BeetleThe cleanliness of the build is apparent from the bright white finish of both the metal and fiberglass body panels, but the finish is not ideal to camouflage flaws. As per the seller, the Bug was used very rare and was used only for dealership display purpose. Hence, the unmarked skid plate, clean frame rails and generally lightly used appearance of suspension and engine components. Additions like roof rack and spots, were made later, however, they function well. The big doubled-up rear shock peek out through the rear fenders in a cool manner.

Volkswagen Beetle-Baja-BugIts insides have a custom bare sheet metal dash that encompass high quality VDO gauges underneath the A/C vents and controls. The high back seats are matched with the rear bench that houses a suspension on each side of it. The basic things like doors and carpeting are just there —- but there’s no padding on the cage.

Volkswagen BeetleThis magnificent build is powered by a 2110 CC air-cooled VW flat four, a shift that displays the real power of these motors. Running double, twin choke Webers, the vehicle is definitely gonna be noisy, and quite powerful as well. The specifications of the Bug are slender, nonetheless, what’s said to be a professionally built gearbox turns the Porsche 930 axles and all work seems to be done in a very high standard. The wiring harness work is fairly neat, like the one seen on diamond plate firewalls. And to avoid unwanted attention on the freeway, you can use a twin muffler to muffle the loud noise of the Bug. This swapping out of this straight pipe bee stinger is to be a few minutes work.

Volkswagen BeetleThis certainly is the most cool Volkswagen Beetle builds seen in a long time. Anyway, the new owner needs to make a trial run to test it out to its limits ASAP. And finally don’t forget to tell us your reactions in the comments section.
