Description for Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1965

You are looking at my 1965 Volkswagen California Drag Bug project. This is an original RUST FREE 1965 VW Beetle originally from the AZ desert. The car was completely stripped down and painted in and out. The intent was to build a really fast bug like I remembered driving as a teenager but life sometimes gets in the way. I have another project that I have been trying to finish for years and want to focus my time on that so this one has to go! This is NOT a fire sale and I know what I have so please do not make any low ball offers. I will consider all reasonable offers so please consider what you are looking at. The drive trainalone is worth over $5,000. There are over 150 pictures in the link below:
