Here's a great little VW fiberglass dune buggy. Street legal, titled as a 1970 VW Beetle Roadster and built on a shortened chassis. VIN plate attached to body underneath in rear section. Has a 1600 motor with dual port heads and 4 spd. Carb is a 2bbl Weber/Holley R 7760.

The body is the best I've seen, with no cracks or flaws, and has the unusual and very hard to find removable hardtop. I believe this is a Breman Citation body. Front end rebuilt 2 years ago with all new ball joints, shocks and tie rod ends. Steering is precise and firm, with no wander or slop. Has good radials with lots of tread. 4 lug VW White wagon wheels with caps. Very nice comfortable interior with black bucket seats in nice shape (shown with covers). Seat belts front and rear (4). Has green AstroTurf floor covering from way back... probably built in the mid-seventies. Gauges work. Noticed the speedo getting a little wobbly starting at about 45, will need cable lube.

I believe mileage to be accurate and original to time of build. I've put a couple thousand on it. Has newer Grant steering wheel. This car does not have a roll bar.

Functioning wipers, turn signals (cancel feature inop), parking lights, high beams, and E-brake. Excellent glass. Comes with snap-on side cover windows.

Could use a fine adjustment on the brakes, and the carb needs a cleaning, or rebuild. Has an idle problem now and then. Seems to be improving with driving. Shifts easily with good clutch. Starts easily hot or cold. Will cruise all day, and go past 75 mph on the highway. Never off road. Chrome weak on fan shroud, license lamp cover, and pits on vent wing chrome. Headlamps excellent.

Car has been garaged since built. 2 previous senior long time owners, I'm the 3rd and have owned about 8 years. Tow bar included, tow home or drive if you don't mind the breeze! Hard to find in this condition. This car would be quite a looker with the right wheel and tire combo. Feel free to inspect and test drive before end of auction. Looking to free up some garage space.

Fun and smiles everywhere you go!
