EBAY Description:

I am reluctantly selling my Dune Buggy due to bad knees.

It has a 1971 VW Chassis; it ia professionally finished, not thrown together like a lot of other Dune Buggies (with junk parts). The motors is a 1904 cc engine, with a rebuild 4 speed transaxle and disc brakes all around.

This Buggy is very fast and very stable driving at any speed.
