Baja build - Part 1
This time I'm building a street-legal Baja Bug from a 1967 Volkswagen
beetle. Originally a 1300cc motor, wide-five swing-axle beetle the finished
car will be powered by a twin port 1600 motor and feature huge off-road
tyres front and rear. I bought this car two years ago from a local guy who
had completed all the rust repairs needed then lost interest in it so it is
a fairly easy project with all the boring bits already done. The previous
owner also rebuilt the original swing-axle gearbox so I am not sure whether
I will use that or convert the car to IRS.
Hanson Mechanical presents the World War II Off Road Beetle KDF 82E Road Test (Filmed in HD)
Video Production by www.eBrandingGroup.com in Baltimore, MD.
We dragged out the 82E after a long sleep. It was experiencing numerous
issues including a wonky oil pressure sensor, bad gas and a couple other
typical long sleep problems. It resides in Australia now. When you have
vehicles that end up sitting too long between runs it is time to send them
on to new homes. Old vehicles have to be run regularly!!
This was a VERY cold day! Ten Degrees! Try holding a video camera outside
and on top of a jeep at 40 mph to see what its like, it was so fun, we did
not feel the cold as much. This is a world war II, KDF 82E.
