Funnybug sez:
The Ocelot was always an ugly duckling of a buggy. This was relisted a few times.. don't know what the final sale price was.

OCELOT - HISTORY

1969 Ocelot II by Sand Chariots of Fullerton, California. Built from 1967 through 1970, the one-piece body shell is designed for the shortened VW floor pan but long enough to completely cover the longer 6-cylinder Chevrolet Corvair engine. Note: The history of the Ocelot Dune Buggy / Company is featured in the book Dune Buggy Handbook, "The A-Z of VW Based Buggies Since 1964" by James Hale.

Last registered in 1985, this dune buggy oozes with 1970s charm. It would be hard to overstate the originality of this very period piece of dune buggy history. Built and first titled in 1969 on a 1967 pan, the quality of the build makes this an exceptional example.

Virtually 100% of the original build pieces used in 1969 remain unchanged and in excellent original condition making this a highly unusual and collectible show buggy. The orange-gold gel coat is the original finish and is in outstanding, nearly perfect, condition. There are no cracks and no holes drilled anywhere. The vehicle has been stored indoors over the years, so zero sun fade. The interior is fully carpeted with snaps and carpet padding- but the carpet is showing signs of aging and the material is unraveling in places. The seats look are MGB units and tilt forward for rear access. The rear area has a base seat pad and a rear access "door" to the engine compartment. The windshield glass has no cracks and the top is just about perfect without any rips or tears. The floor pans and undercarriage are in excellent condition - no rust or damage
