Time to sell my nearly-complete project, '70 bug w/ a Bosch Digifant fuel-injected 1.8 liter straight four cylinder VW watercooled engine.

New floor pans in the '70 chassis, '72 body has had the structural rust patched. CNC dual-handle cutting brakes installed, as well as normal '70 bug drums/system all around. Interior heater- IH bread truck heater box w/ electric fan, nice n' toasty. Front seats are from '91 jetta, gray upholstery. Mix n' match fenders/hood colors from the best of my parts pile, a little hammer n' dolly work to be done prior to prep/paint. chassis wiring is stock '70. cracked windshield, needs a dash pad, too. No back seat. Chassis has 73016 miles on it
1991 Volkswagen Jetta engine (1.8 liter, water-cooled) w/ stock fuel injection setup installed, new exhaust. Engine is mated to a 'freeway flyer' transaxle w/ the 3.88 r/p ratio for better economy and today's highway speeds, using a Kennedy Engineered Products (KEP) adapter. Coolant lines under chassis are square-stock steel tube leading to a front-mounted new VW scirocco radiator & electric fan. Engine has 96500 miles on it, and is about due for a valve stem seal replacement (typical, age-related, they dry up a bit and allow oil to seep by while the engine sits).
Sit down, turn key, drive away, nice and simple. Since installing the engine, I have put 16 miles on the car, and assure that it steers, starts, stops ok, and the motor pulls substantially stronger than a stock single-port 1600, which would have been in this particular car.
Need a second VW Bug, how about my '69 stock bug, un-molested and ready for prep/paint work? Again, $1250 and you can drive it away, too, although the tires are weather-checked. How about two running bugs (the '70 and the '69) for $2200?
Thanks for your time,
