Orange Is The New Baja: 1968 Volkswagen Beetle

The Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle is a famously cheap car to drive around…probably because the engineering is simple, parts are cheap, and everything is fixable by a DIY mechanic. Things don’t change much when you raise it 50 feet in the air and put disc brakes all around to make it a Baja Bug…except that it becomes much less of a people’s commuter and more of a gravel road bomber. Find this 1968 Volkswagen Beetle offered for $12000 in Santa Clarita, CA via faceplate marketbook. Tip from MikeD.
