Rotary Powered: 1969 Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle

Remember when Mazda purchased the rights to build the Volkswagen Beetle and started shoving 13B rotary engines into version that were setup from the factory as Baja racers, and then Donald Trump was sworn in as president. Wait…that stuff didn’t happen?  It was just a dream.  But you were there…and you…and you… Find this 1969 Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle offered for $6,000 in Inland Empire Los Angeles Area, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Rock On!

Behind the driver sits a 25 gallon fuel cell…and then a VW transaxle with a Mazda 13B that is fed via a carburetor mated to an aftermarket intake manifold.  It should make a noise that is so bad that you’ll want the original VW engine back.
