Quite a few spare parts will go with the car. I have spent a lot of time working with theshocks and the suspension is dialed in (for desert). Car weights around 3000lbs. I built it to be stout and run the deserts and Baja. 102" wheelbase, 79" track and 13' overall length. The car is small due to the VW body. The rear seat will only fit kids/smaller adults.

Possible trade for Corvette or sports car
