That VW seems to be in good shape, did it spend it's life up north?

I have no idea, it is fairly rusty underneath. The previous owner already replaced the floor pans which is one of the reasons I bought it. The heater channels need some work and I am debating on removing the body and just replacing them in their entirety and be done with it. I was looking over the engine yesterday and I have decided to yank it out since it leaks from every gasket on the thing so easier to fix on the bench. Plus I can then better assess the body and rusty rear suspension. Not really worried about the suspension since I will be stripping my 71 Super of all its parts and sending it to the scrapyard. With the exception of the front suspension and immediate front body all of the rest of the parts on the car are the same as the 70 beetle.
