Default 1960 Beetle Project

Hi, i got my first air-cooled back in September 2012 and wasn't planning doing much at first just wanted to get driving it but after taking a few parts out noticed it needed a lot more work. So its turned into a full body off resto. hope you like what I've got up to soo far.

Its a 1960 Beetle with a 1600 Twin-port.

First pictures when it arrived

I've seen better, I've seen worse. Looks like the girl had a rough life but luckily it's all fixable. Good luck!
