I assume that you are referring to the odd fiberglass front on the Baja. I know I saw one of those in an old VW magazine recetly, but I couldn't tell ya which one. Fiberjet made some similar front on their buggies, but I don't know if they made a similar Baja kit.

A lot of those kits were "here today gone tomorrow" companies. Looks pretty complete. Other than who made it, what do you need to know?

Maybe Sears? They used to have a bunch of unusual baja kits.

It kinda reminds me of the Baja body Matchbox has. I actually really like it. It's totally different than the common bajas. That front end would be a perfect place for a radiator for watercooled powered bajas.

I think a mold could be a very good idea.

It reminds me a little bit of a super 7 front end.

I'm still thinking I saw one in an old VW mag. I'm still looking through them of and on. I doubt very seriously that the company is still in business, but ya never know.
