I have sold a lot of cars over the years and most haven’t been restorations. I would get old cars work on them to get them mechanically sound, running, and driving then put them up for sale. Some were sold as parts or project cars as well. Like I said before I have had a couple computer’s crashes and lost a camera. Most of the work records before I incorporated the business in 2000 are gone, and I am missing some of the pictures for completion of a few too. Here’s what I have sold from 2000 to 2013.
1960 VW Beetle Black – Parted Out – Feb. 2009
This was a complete car.
With lots of rust
Then the lower door pillars were needed.
Lower pillars went to the 1954 as well.
This car gave it’s titled pan to a 1960 Convertible.
Sapphire I w/ vertical push button!
This rear end went on a 1954 that had a baja cut.
1960 VW Beetle Convertible – Project – May 2012
Compete car came from KS.
Lots of surface rust
There was rust in the tunnel and bulkhead
Typical of any Convertible that sit outside without a top
The pan was shot.
Nice, untouched trunk!
It has a floor again!
Makes for a nice picture!
Titled pan from the 1960 Beetle Black.
Hood, top, and decklid from 1959 Convertible.
That 1959 did have a few parts for this projcet.
1962 VW Beetle Baja – Project – July 2010
“Froggy” Named by the previous owner’s
The car didn’t have very much rust at all.
Car full of the parts.
I had to install a beam to load the car for transport.
At least it came with the parts to put it back together.
It took a good hit as a Baja and bent the beam.
A little metal work and the front will fit again.
It was sitting on blocks and the bent beam was laying next to the car.
This project is ready for an engine.
Not pretty, but hey, it’s a Baja!
Coil over shock reinforcements?
The rear end was adjusted back up to (Baja) height.

This was how the car was went I picked it up.
Rust in the rear body mounts and rear bumper brackets.
Apron sitting there just for looks.
Previous owner pulle all the rear metal and tossed.
The car wasn’t complete on pick up.
The only rust was in the rear of the car.
That is the original rear apon.
The beam was swapped because of rust issuses.
The cars always look better with bumpers.
I came across a correct decklid.
The front end raised up all the way and correct front signals added.
1600cc Dual port from a 1971 Super that I cut up.
Period after market radio!
I picked up a car and the guy had all the yellow rear parts.
Original door panels are in nice shape as was the headliner.
1963 VW Beetle Baja – Running / Driving – January 2005 (Missing completion pictures)
Baja kit from the 1958 Baja truck.
This is how it came from the swap meet.

1963 VW Sand Flee – Project – February 2009

1964 VW Beetle – Baja
1964 VW Beetle Convertible
1964 VW Beetle – Running / Driving – April 2010
1963 VW Beetle – Project Sept. 2020
1964 VW Beetle
This would make for a real nice winter project and it is a pretty complete car, but is the engine. The car has never had the dash cut and comes with a radio. It’s getting harder to find these old bugs with everything on them and un-touched. Even the wiring cover and truck liner are still present!
The car has been off the road for some time and the plate date looks to be 1984. There isn’t much rust on the car and it would be a easy project compared to most that are out there. There is some starting in the rear heater channel corners, battery tray and a couple bubbles in the front wheel wells. Someone cut a section off the passenger side door for a chop top and another door shell that is fairly straight is included.
The car is being sold with bill of sale only, but does have matching numbers on the body tag and pan for the titling process.
