1971 VW Bug Baja Off-Road Ready, has been custom built into what the seller describes as a reliable off-road vehicle. As we've seen photos here and spec sheet are impressive, and these full-fendered Class 11 style Baja Bugs are nearly always cool–almost like factory built race specials.
1971 Class 11 style baja bug (80,000 on odometer, not sure of real mileage). I bought this car about 8 years ago and have slowly built it into a reliable off-road vehicle, however I've decided to move on to another project, so my bug is up for sale.
I've driven this less that 1,000 miles per year since I've had it. I have a complete build thread
