Hey there Iím new to this site and to the vw stuff. I currently built a sand rail with a 2.0L out of a 79 bus and have found there is not a whole lot of aftermarket stuff out there for it. I recently purchased a 70 bug that someone tried to chop and failed miserably but I am going to make a full time convertible it has basically nothing but a steering and brakes. NO transaxle or engine, so question is I Have an opportunity to purchase an engine for a hundred bucks but is seized is it rebuild able? Or should I look elsewhere for something else. I will be rebuilding whatever I get just to know what I got and to learn the internals of this style of motor any comments would be appreciated
Thanks Jay

Depends on why it seized if it's rebuildable. Need more info on what year the engine case is first, to know if you would want to use it for rebuild for you application.
