1969 Volkswagen Dune Buggy
1969 Volkswagen Dune Buggy
Scooby met Speed Buggy in his feverish dream depicting a fantasy of the Mystery Solvers Club State Finals. Lord Infernicus captured everyone except the sidekicks. Guinea pigs appeared wearing identical outfits to each of their human friends. Speed Buggy, Angel, and Principal Quinlan destroyed the connecting area so Infernicus wouldn't find them, however, Infernicus already found them and knocked them off the building and into the swimming pool, but they survived.
Load up the surf boards, blow up the rubber ducky float, climb the nearest dune for some chill time at the beach, and you can do it in style with this VW based dune buggy. All fiberglass construction on a VW beetle frame and engine, some snazzy wheels and high travel suspension, this convertible buggy is just da bomb for retro travel back in time. If you are going to do a commute, you might as well do it in style with this creation which is residing in our South showroom where it is looking for a dune to climb!
Molded fiberglass in the form of a shell and tub for some interior seats make up this simplified body with floating fenders. Headlights like bug eyes protrude upwards from the inner fenders right next to the hood. An aluminum windshield frame is raked rearward and supports the front mounting for the black convertible top. The upper body is a screaming yellow zonker and the bottom of the tub is black with a yellow lightning bolt. The rear of this body is nice and high for the suspension travel and has dual taillights looking like they are from a certain bowtie model. Cathedral crystal shaped rear plastic windows add to the custom effect, as do the dual zoom tubes for the exhaust emanating from either side. 15-inch polished wheels are on all 4 corners and an extra detail that is snappy are yellow brake drum covers seen through the wheels.
Black and yellow vinyl make up the seats with high back racing style buckets upfront and a low back wide seat matching the buckets is in back. A large roll bar is extra security just in case a dune decides to give way, you are protected (somewhat!). The fiberglass molded dash utilizes the gauges and knobs from the original donor bug. Just below this dash is a sea of black carpeting. Definitely an open-air driving experience.
A VW 1493cc rear engine is firmly planted in the back and it has a 1-barrel carburetor on top and uses the VW 4-speed manual transmission. This engine is very clean and has dual exhaust and looks like new, it is in that good of condition. A wide belly plate protects the bottom end and is reinforced with a curved steel guard bar.
A large steel pan protects virtually the entire back end of this buggy. Clean VW metal is making up the molded floor pans and toe kicks, which look as though they had been replaced at one point in time. Transverse torsion bars for the front, and independent semi trailing arms for the back. Drum brakes are on all 4 corners.
Pure fun, open air, and you can almost become 1 with this interesting build. Nice acceleration, great braking, and then engine runs like a tip top, …top!
So many of us go through like just using our cars to commute back and forth to work and go on the occasional vacation. We treat our cars like our toasters, expecting them to work for us every day. With this custom you can just have flat out fun, climb whatever landscape, and enjoy the open air and big country out there. Scooby Doo!
