68 VW Drag Bug, Rancho Tranny, 1390 lbs   Price: $6750
Great drag car, sad to see it go but had a chance to buy a car I had been chasing for many years and can’t keep two of them. I made 50 passes in it at 4 local tracks with a best of 11.76 at 110 mph, it spent its previous life at the tracks in Southern California. I am keeping the 2332cc currently in the car but it ran consistent 11.70-11.90s with it and is blast to drive. The car has been worked over from nose to tail to dial in the suspension, lighten it up, and make it a safe and consistent runner by a well-respected racer/mechanic in Washington. Great way to get into a drag bug with all the features you are looking for and save a bunch of money and time by buying one that is already done.

Price is cash or paypal family friends/wire transfer, happy to help with getting it loaded on transport/shipping or may consider delivering it within a few hundred miles or more. Other than stuffing a motor of your choice in there is really nothing to do the car. Last ran at Bremerton dragstrip at the end of August in 2018.
