I'll never understand why so many bugs turned into trucks don't run a type 3 or 4 engine with the flat fan layout. You might actually get a somewhat usable bed floor if you didn't have that damn type 1 fan shroud!

Because sometimes you can’t just easily find a flat engine when you’re on a shoe string budget.

Speaking as somebody who is making a bug truck as we speak. However if somebody wants to donate a type 3 engine to me I’ll gladly fork over my details if it bothers you guys so much Wink

Some think that if your beetle has a padded dash, it's an engine donor. Some think that if it has push button door handles, it's a boat anchor.
