Summary

Awesome little Dune Buggy that is a blast to drive. Titled as a 2011 Custom Dune Buggy. Has just been completely restored. New everything. I rebuilt this and completed it in May 2011. During the build, my wife and I found out we have a baby on the way, and that is the reason I am having to sell it. I really hate to sell it after all the work I put into it, but family comes first. It has under 500 miles since rebuild. Everywhere I have driven the buggy, I have received compliments on how good and unique it looks. I have over $11,000 invested in the buggy. I have put this as a NO RESERVE auction starting at $8,575. This is a steal for that price. You will not find a nicer buggy.

Suspension/wheels/roll-cage/brakes

The buggy has adjustable coil-over rear shocks and adjustable air front shocks. It has a set of $2,500 BMW M-series wheels (17”) on it along with a custom built roll-cage and nerf bars. The roll-cage and nerf bars make the buggy sturdy, a lot safer, and really give it a sporty look. The roll-cage and wheels have both been professionally painted BMW “silver gray” to match each other. It has new brake shoes, new master cylinder, and new brake lines through out. It does not have a parking brake.

Electronics

Great new sound system. Sony xplod CD player (50wx4). Two 5 ¼ Sony xplod front speakers. Two 6 x 9 Sony xplod rear speakers. 8" JVC subwoofer powered by an 800 watt Kenwood amp. Sounds awesome. All Brand new lights. Rear LED tails, LED reverse Lights, and an LED high mount brake light on the roll-cage. Red LED strips run under the side and fenders for higher visibility at night. Optima Battery. Built in trailer wiring for towing that converts the buggy’s lights into trailer lights. There is a battery cut-off switch that serves as an anti-theft device as well as a safety device.

Body

The fiberglass body has been entirely body worked and professionally painted Audi “brilliant red”. The paint on this buggy is truly outstanding. This type of body is a rare body known as a trophy car. It was built by a company in Florida that did not stay in business very long. It is a very rare body style with dual hood scoops, and subsequently a valuable body.

Interior

The interior is very neat. The horn and turn signal switches have been mounted on a custom built center console. The stereo has been molded into the dash to make it look factory. The speedometer is 100mph speedometer. All the lights in the speedometer work but I have not yet put a speedometer cable in. All the carpeting has newly been installed. It has a SunPro white gauge tachometer mounted on the tunnel in front of the shifter that looks very sporty. It has MG leather seats that match the buggy perfectly. The rear shelf has been built into a compartment that houses the battery and fuel tank. It has a momo style steering wheel with a Wolfsburg center emblem.

Engine

It has a completely rebuilt 1600 dual port engine with chrome trim and horn style exhaust. The engine really runs great and sounds awesome. It has plenty of power to really make this light little beach buggy fly.
