Funnybug sez:

This is entry #655. Might want to rethink that "One of a kind" claim.

EBAY Description:

CLEAR MISSOURI TITLE ~ 1972 VOLKS

1 OF A KIND CUSTOM CLASSY BUGGY RECENTLY PROFESSIONALLY DIALED IN BY VERY REPLICABLE VW SPECIALIST

THIS IS A MUST SEE AND DRIVE TO APPRECIATE, THIS BUGGY IS GETS ATTENTION AT ALL OUTINGS

EXTERIOR

COMPLETE CUSTOM PAINT WITH THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF BLUE PEARL HIGHLIGHTED WITH BLACK FADES TRIMMED WITH BRIGHT RED STRIPING. THIS THEME IS CARRIED THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE EXTERIOR. THE HEADLAMPS, TURN SIGNALS, TAILLIGHTS AND BOTH LICENSE PLATE BRACKETS ARE IN EXCELLENT SHAPE AND WITH A CHROME FINISH. THE TUBULAR FRONT AND REAR BUMPERS HAVE A BRUSHED METAL FINISH AS SO ARE THE SIDE STEP DOWNS....VERY ORNATE AND HIGH QUALITY. THERE IS ALSO A STYLISH SUN/WIND PARTIAL SOFT TOP AS SEEN IN THE PHOTOS. THE ROLL BAR IS A GREAT FINISHING TOUCH BUT IS FOR LOOKS NOT SAFETY.

INTERIOR

THE DASHBOARD HOUSES A SELECT GROUP OF GAUGES TO INCLUDE THE MPH, RPM, VOLTS AND FUEL GAUGES. THE AM/FM CD PLAYER IS ALSO MOUNTED IN THE DASH AND PROVIDES PLENTY OF SOUND. THE DASH ALSO CONTAINS A VARIETY OF OPERATIONAL LIGHTS AND FUSES FOR CONVENIENCE. THE FLOOR IS COVERED WITH A HIGHLY DURABLE RUBBER BARRIER. THE SEAT STYLE FLOWS WITH THE CURVY BODY LINES AND THE BOLD STEERING WHEEL AND SHIFT KNOB TRULY FINISH OFF THE INTERIOR. THE SEATS ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, COMFORTABLE AND PROVIDE PLENTY OF SUPPORT.

ENGINE

WHEN I PURCHASED THE BUGGY, THE PREVIOUS OWNER DESCRIBED THE ENGINE AS A 1915CC. I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO VERIFY THE EXACT CC AND THEREFORE I AM NOT CERTAIN, SO PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND WHEN BIDDING. I KNOW IT HAS A LOT OF POWER AND SOUNDS GREAT. THE CARBURETOR IS PERFECTLY DIALED IN. I JUST SPENT APPROX $1800 AT A REPLICABLE VW SPECIALIST HAVING THEM COMPLETELY REBUILD THE TRANSMISSION AND ADDRESSING ANY OTHER ASSOCIATED MAINTENANCE (I HAVE THE PAID RECEIPT). I TOOK SOME CLOSE UPS TO HELP WITH ANY SPECIFIC QUESTIONS ABOUT THE ENGINE AND CARBURETOR. IT HAS THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF CHROME ACCESSORIES. TO SUM IT UP.....THIS BUGGY RUNS, DRIVES AND HANDLES GREAT.

WHEELS AND TIRES

PERFECT COMBINATION OF WHEELS AND TIRES......WHEELS ARE MICKEY THOMPSON M/T PERFORMANCE WHEELS. THE FRONT TIRES ARE DAYTON'S P205/65 R15 AND THE REAR TIRES ARE LIBERATOR'S A/T 31X10.5 R15.

MILEAGE

THE ODOMETER SHOWS APPROX 36749K MILES. I HAVE NO WAY TO VERIFY IF THIS IS THE ACTUAL MILEAGE. I ASSUME IT IS NOT.

ADDITIONAL INFO

WHEN BIDDING PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS BUGGY IS NOT IN PERFECT SHAPE BUT TRULY RUNS, DRIVES AND LOOKS GREAT. NO SURPRISES WITH THIS BUGGY. I DID MY BEST TO ACCURATELY DESCRIBE THIS VEHICLE SO PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS.

THIS CAR IS BEING SOLD "AS IS" WITH NO EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTY.
