Must Seeeee: 1971 Volkswagen Beetle V8

I can’t agree more that when the seller says this car is a “Must seeeeeeeeee” because I’m having a hard time justifying the images on the pages with what I know about Volkswagen Beetles.  Just how does a Chevrolet V8 fit under the front hood and how does power get to what rear end…it’s like I’ve just seen a picture of a blimp and you tell me its a submarine.  Find this 1971 Volkswagen Beetle V8 offered for an undisclosed price in Thousand Oaks, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Sean S.

It looks like a nicely prepared LT1 from a 1995 Vette is sitting in the front of a Volkswagen Beetle, but this isn’t like the time you swapped a Chevy 350 into a Mustang or a even a Volvo 240 — this is a complete make-over of the original people’s car design.

In the seller’s own words:

bug is on a s10 frame with power disk brakes front and rear. tilt
steering wheel with power steering. rear end is a subaru sti independent
rear diff and and lower controll arms . wheels are off the corvette
with new tires .
