Ebay Description:

(rat rod, hot rod, 50s/60s/70s gm car)
This is a Sand Flee from the seventies, I bought it 5 years ago off eBay
and have slowly brought this buggy back to great running condition
The sand flee was different from most Buggies because it had a molded floor pan that went under your feet to the front seat. this makes the body stronger. It also has a cover over the battery compartment, looks cool. See pictures
Kit was designed to be able to use a corvair or a VW engine
This car has a single port engine in it from the mid sixties
the pan vin numbers are clear and it is a 61 convertible pan
Title clear and in my name
In the past 5 years car has been stored in my garage, in pieces and whole for the whole 5 years.
I removed the body and completely disassembled the car
body was stripped of paint and damaged areas were repaired.
wiring, gauges, cables and interior were tossed
Car was filled, sanded and painted 3 years ago by 1 day paint, and is a ok job
but not great. I almost lost the entire body when they went under.
Pan and suspension were cleaned, wire wheeled and either painted or por 15 (pan)
entire brake system was replaced including brake lines and stainless flex brake hoses
Carb overhauled and Gas Tank cleaned
New Clutch and pressure plate
New SW gauge set (Tach, oil, volts, gas) and gas tank sender
New wiring and fuse block
New headlights and tail lights, turn signals
New clutch and throttle cables, battery
New axle seals
New horn, turn signal stalk has button it it for high beams, I hooked it up to the horn, pretty cool

Everything works on this car with the exception of the lighter
Comes with tow bar and trailer light set up that clamps to the engine cage
Buggy runs great but Carb / timing needs adjustment
Car has been on the road for only 6 months now, it
is insured, current on tags and NEVER needs smog!!
Holes in the side area near the seats are small storage areas, this buggy comes with side pods with a bump out at the hole so you can put small items in there (I have not installed them yet but it will be finished by auction end)
Also Ebay makes me list the mileage, but I have no Idea so I put down what Buggy has since the rebuild
I have added the ad from the 70's and a picture of what the buggy looked like when I bought it
