The floorsare coated with truck bed liner for protection from the elements.The vw has the 6 point rollbar for extra safety.The 1600 cc engine fires right up and has good power! Compression check showed about 120 psi across all cylinders. It appears that itis the original engine,prefix is AM on engine number.
