1965 VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE DUNE BUGGY
Initially built to navigate sand dunes and beaches, the dune buggy has become a pop culture icons and holds its own niche within the collector car world. Starting in the 1960s, custom car builders took a fiberglass body and grafted it onto the chassis of another car, usually a Volkswagen Beetle, nicknamed a 'bug' - giving rise to the term 'dune buggy.' The Volkswagen was favored because of cheap cost, sturdy front suspension and rear mounted air cooled engine for simplicity. Titled as a 1965 VW, this buggy is a Thunder Bug, designed in a similar fashion to the most popular Dune Buggy of the time, the Meyers Manx. It is a clean California car with absolutely zero rust, rot or corrosion. The chassis is a shortened 1965 Beetle pan, powered by a newer 1600cc dual-port carbureted engine. The 4-speed manual transmission has a short-shift linkage and shifts smooth into all gears, with a strong, solid clutch. Extras include a custom Bimini top, a rear seat with seatbelts and a VW tow bar and powder-coated Enkei rims with Dayton tires. All of the suspension systems, steering and brakes have been repaired and replaced, and everything works - including the horn, wiper motor, turn signals, etc. It features many new parts, including exhaust, battery, H4 headlights and fiberglass seats with seat covers.
