Ebay Description:

I hate to get rid of this car, but I have a growing family and obligations and too little spare time to fully enjoy it. My loss is your gain. I have documentation for most of the new parts in this car and will provide to the purchaser upon request. This car has been well cared for and I have always garage kept it. It runs fast and strong and has a high power to weight ratio. Handling is very quick and responsive. You won't be disappointed.

Currently Registered as a 1971 VW Street Rod in Maryland and is ready for you to drive home.

The pictures are worth a 1,000 words but here is what you need to know.

I have owned this car since Nov. 2004 and have always garage kept it. Engine was totally rebuilt in the winter of 2005-2006 (see below for full engine specs). This car has only been used by me to go to a few car shows, driven in parades, and or to make a few pleasure trips around town during the summer months over the last 6 years. I estimate I have put about 3,000 total miles on this car since I have owned it. I did tow this car 700 miles +/- roundtrip once to the Outer Banks,NC once for vacation and it towed easily with our family mini van. (Rear buggy lights are wired for towing with Standard 4 wire tow light plug receptical wired to the front of the car). The car was always winterized properly every year .

Fiberglass is thick throughout on this buggy. There is a very small crack around the passenger side headlamp mounting point ( see picture) that has been there and has not gotten larger since I purchased the car in 2004. The head lights are also supported by steel supports from underneath so there is no stress on the fiberglass at that point. Floor pans are custom made flat sectioned steel and are solid through out. Seats are solid mounted on steel supports to the floor pan. Custom made hinged Aluminum Diamond Plate Engine Cover. Comes with Removable Yellow Bikini Top as seen in pictures. It takes about 2minutes to put on/ take off the top. Top stores easily inside storage compartment behind seats.

This car has never been raced, but with it's high horsepower fast revving engine and low overall weight, it accellarates quickly and will put you back in the seat. Car has not been dyno'ed.

*Odometer mileage is not actual as I replaced the speedometer/odometer with a used genuine VW unit after I purchased the car as the original speedo was faulty.
