I picked this up from ebay a couple of weeks back, listed as Vintage RC Baja Bug.
The pics were grainy and pretty poor overall, with not much detail visible. I could see the car was a mess but it had a rear cage that I have been after , and also nylon arms but I was unsure of their condition. I also fancied the CRP butterfly chassis.
I decided to take a risk and try to win the auction which I did for more than I wanted to pay at the time.
When I got the car home last night I was very happy to find out that the nylon arms are in excellent condition, the chassis is almost unmarked and the rear cage will come up a treat when I re-finish it!.
Also to my surprise the axles were heavy duty hardened ones with gold hubs. Other than the gold hubs they look the same as some CRP ones that I already have on a runner that I paid a fair bit for, so was happy about this find! Wonder who makes them ???
I also found SC UJ's and very happy to find some heavy duty front axles tubes and heavy duty steering kit.
The shell needs a slight fix up ( add it to the pile!).
The shocks are sitting in a bath of WD40 until I can take them apart and assess their usability.
All in all , a ton of very rare hop ups in excellent condition for a very good price!......
The pics are from the listing... I still haven't replaced my digital camera that was lost.
