    Default My "New" Monster Beetle


    Members do not see advertisements
    Recently won this on goodwills online site and received it via UPS today. The thing was near mint, just dusty. If i had to guess it was ran once if that as it had some dirt on the rear tires. It came with one body mount but I was able to find another in my stash of parts. A good thing I rarely throw anything away. The front post is broken but still does the job as I"m not sure I'm going to run this. A couple of the tires are torn. I'm guessing just from age. I modified a Blackfoot upright body post to use the body mount I found. This might be the nicest one I've had since I built my first one back in 1990. Here are some of the pics I took after some cleanup.













    Let me know what you guys think...

    Very nice find and very mint too. I think I have an aluminum front body mount.

    I was surprised Will. Also glad I was able to scrounge up the parts I needed to mount the body. I think I might treat it to some new tires as the torn ones just bug me.
