Wasn't it Randy Carlson who put on the freak show at the Classic? This should be added to the line-up.
Just terrible... Sick

From the ad:
GREAT TIME FOR A PROJECT
This 1973 Volkswagen is a very unique car. Perfect for the person who wants to have a one of a kind car,
This car has TWO FRONTS welded together, everything works as if it were a normal car. The car is fully attached to a dodge pickup frame . The motor has been changed out and now has a Corvair Chevy engine.
All floors are new no rust period. All wiring is connected and everything works , lights ,and gauges all work.
The body has been started and has very little rust. All glass is perfect. Car has been partly undercoated.
This car runs great and transmission is perfect.

Other than it being on a pickup chassis, I quite like that. 1303 front on the back?

That must have been a pretty new Beetle at the time, 65 or newer?

OK here is Gigantor leaving the garage. First start on the engine and first time these sections of VW have moved for at least 40 years!
