1964 Volkswagen-based Manx-style fiberglass dune buggy (California Clipper body style). 1641cc fully-chromed engine with stinger exhaust, over $2000 in recent engine/clutch work. New wiring throughout the car. Have some of the receipts from previous owners dating back to the 70's, it appears to have been an LA area car its entire life. It has a battery cut-off switch, all the lights function, speedometer and odometer work. Floor pans and gas tank have been treated with a rust inhibitor. It has a radio in the dash, but it did not come with a faceplate or speakers when I bought the buggy and I've never been interested in replacing them. New starter (6/7/14) and new front tires (6/9/14). It could use a few things (trim work around the edges of the carpet, some paint touch-ups, freshen up the engine [there is normal wear after 50 years], adjust the lengthen of the fuel gauge cable, re-install the gas tank vent line, etc.), but it doesn't look too bad and is currently running and driving just fine.

It's street legal, I have a clean title, and the registration was just renewed (good through July of 2015). No smog is needed.

It's a great buggy that can be driven and enjoyed as is, or it could be taken to the next level. The usual disclaimers apply: it runs and drives, but it is a 50 year-old buggy. As such, it is being sold as-is, where-is; no warranty expressed or implied. Mileage may increase slightly as the buggy is still driven. $200 deposit due within 24 hours of purchase. Full payment must be received within 7 days unless other arrangements are made prior to purchase. Local buyers are strongly encouraged to come see the car in person before purchasing. Any questions, let me know and I will do my best to answer them for you. Thanks for looking and good luck!

Note: The buggy is listed for sale locally as well. I reserve the right to end the listing early if it should sell through other channels.
