Funnybug sez:
This is a weird looking buggy eh? I wonder if those built in headlights meet minimum height. No idea why ebay yanked the auction.

Ebay Description:

You are looking at a very rare Concept 1 Dune buggy. This vehicle was built to look like the 70s series Corvettes. It even has the original finish. A few nicks over the years but it looks really nice. As most of you know finding a Dune buggy with original finish is rare. I keep this in my shop, covered at all times. It shows 47,982 miles and I believe those to be true miles. It is powered by a 1600 dual port (one port to each cylinder) VW engine and has a Weber two barrel carburetor. Eng No AE 842724 which shows it to be a 1971-72 engine. The title shows the buggy as a 1971 VW. I would think the engine is original, as it would be hard to find one with the right serial number. A few years ago I installed leather bucket seats and they are very comfortable to sit in while driving. I also installed a set of True-Spoke wire wheels from one of my Corvettes. They have some rust on them but for a $3K set of old wheels, they don’t look too bad and I am including them with the sale. Really they look great if you don’t look at them closer than two feet away. You could detail them or have them re-chromed but they look nice on the buggy just like they are . This winter I put new brakes, lines, and wheel cylinders on it. Also I added a (T) shifter and it throw great. This Dune-buggy also comes with a 2” ball tow-bar with the sale. So you can tow it to where you want to drive it and tow it home when you are finished. Great for cruising the beaches or rally’s or to pull behind a motorhome. The mounts also come completely off if you would rather not have them on while you are cruising. We bought this buggy to do all the above and cruise around but, we don’t drive it enough to justify keep it. It is time to let someone else enjoy it. I have owned it for a number of years and just don’t use it enough. I spend most of my free time on motorcycles. I************************* Safety Warning to all *********************************l This Buggy is very fast, responsive and light. Do not buy it for a highschool student as a present.
