thanks man!! the '59 and the '65 (the other 2 toned car) aren't the same one...they looked alike but that's about it...one is a vw pan and near stock suspension,the other is a full tube chassis,ladder bar suspension car,this car is double in value tthan th '59...
here some pics of the transformation or the '59 through the years...
this is the same car:
first rendition,did this with my wife in a 16x24 "Cover It" tent..
then I caged it and through a draw through turbo kit on it,some ercos etc..
then after killing it,I thought it was time to let her go and turned her back to stone stock and sold her offf..
I had this one for 4 yrs before i sold it...the new car is way sicker and even more complex.
then I built this pig...and still have her today...

My '74 low buck Baja build. Bought the car for $100, and I've only spent about another $100 to get where it is now, have bigger tires for the front but of course I killed my last sawzall blade after only completing the cut on one front fender. Rear tires are 31x10.5 BFG KM's, fronts are going to be some 235/75/15 all terrains once I get the fender cutting done and swap 'em on. My friends have named it Valkyrie Prime.
sold this 2 weeks ago to a guy in Mass.,this was an og 78k super nice notch for $4900...
...cost more to build it than to buy it these days with the economy tanking so bad this guy is nearly giving this thing away!!...
...if the bug doesn't go between now and then they'll both be in the garage!!
