Bought this bug 2 weeks ago for 550 up in Bealton Virginia. It is 100% complete and all Original, it sat for 16 years. Still has the original 1300 motor never been rebuilt or removed from the car and it still runs. It needs rear floors but the front floors are still Ok, Heater channels have seen better days. I plan to just cruise it as a hood ride for a few years with no radical mods so I can restore it eventually. Overall it is in very good solid shape. I think it will make a nice start to a cool hoodride. Plan to leave all rust and primer spots and just put some drop spindles on an clean up the wheels, tune the motor and drive as is. Probably put a few new window seals just to keep the inside dry. Any thought or ideas. I have never used drop spindles before, do I have to use a narrowed beam to put them on? Just wanted to put this out there to see what yall think.

Another 66 around . No you do not have to narrow your beam to run dropped spindles. But it also depends on how low you go. I have a 4in narrowed adjustable beam with dropped spindles on my 66
