Many a project starts off small and gets much bigger this is the exception, take a very low mileage 1996 mexican Bug in 1999 rip out the Fuel Injection motor, Convert it to RHD using the parts from a 69 Bug, reinstall a 1500 SP motor and new RHD loom add a set of original wheels and thats all folks..... I needed a motor for my 66 ghia project and traded my Double cab for this rather nice looking new bug. I didnt want to waste the shell by parting it out and sellling the parts but needed to register it, so using enough of the 69 car i re- registered it as the original car, I accept its not exactly the best way but at the time it was the only way. I also helped a friend restore the 72 Super Beetle in the pictures below.
