About VW Baja Bug
The legend and versatility of the Volkswagen Beetle is about more than snappy styling and 1960s throwback charm. With the introduction of the altered VW Baja Bug in the late 1960s, this cool vehicle also entered the world of racing. Though it sounds like a fancy model or trim, the Baja Bug is unlikely to be found on dealer display. This is a customized version of the original Beetle used specifically for off-road purposes and racing and designed as an alternative to VW-style dune buggies such as the Meyers Manx. Today, VW Baja Bugs still enjoy off-road adventures but also have a life and world of their own that includes collectors' items, scale models, and toys. Real enthusiasts build Baja Bugs from the ground up, beginning with a regular Beetle and utilizing special VW Baja Bug parts such as shortened body panels to suit their off-road racing needs. When you shop the large inventory on eBay, the world of the VW Baja Bug suddenly opens up further to reveal parts, equipment, and even miniatures.
