Description for Volkswagen Beetle - Classic 1971

Volkswagen BeetleDune Buggy
This is a very rare "Allison Daytona style" dune buggy. It was very well made with a much thicker fiberglass construction than many, if not all, of the buggys made in that era. This buggy still has the "metal flake gel coat" from way back when. I have not redone the paint or gel coat and it is still in very nice condition with very few imperfections for its age. It has lasted so well I think mostly due to the thickness of the body panels and construction.
It is well built and runs and drives like new! I installed a new polymer (not fiberglass like when it was built) fuel tank because the coating had cracked and come loose on the inside of the factory fiberglass one. I installed new copper fuel line (not rubber), front to back with a new electric fuel pump. When I had the front end off to replace the fuel tank I noticed the original wiring was old and spliced and I replaced it also (purchased a completely new wiring harness). I removed the motor and completely re-did it with all new chrome tins, fan housing, plugs, wires, distributor, coil, carb etc, etc.... anything it needed I replaced. The windshield was crackedso a brand new one was installed. The floor pans have been replaced.
NO EXPENSE SPARED.
I also installed brand new stainless steel headers which sound awesome! The correct 60s style aluminum wheels were pulled and sanded and polished and reinstalled with all new chrome lug bolts. The tires are like brand new. The speedometer, headlights, taillights (LED), horn, turn signals, emergency flasher etc all work as they should. The 1600 plus cc VW engine (looks like a recent fresh rebuild) runs awesome with loads of power. The 4 speed manual transmission shifts smooth through each gear with a very tight, not sloppy, shifter. The clutch is perfect. It drives straight as an arrow with no shimmy or pulling.
One turn of the key and the little bug starts right up! This great little buggy also has all 4 wheel disc brakes! I also removed the uncomfortable racing style seats and installed BRAND NEW Jeep Wrangler bucket seats in the front and a new matching Jeep bench seat in the rear. They are very comfortable.
As you can see... you have a practically BRAND NEW dune buggy straight from the 60s !! The work was professionally done with no corners cut. Turn key...drive it anywhere!
So bid with confidence that you could not buy and then build this car for anywhere near my reserve.
Keep in mind that this is an AUCTION so please bid what you can afford or feel you will pay. If we start getting close I may LOWER the RESERVE so bid ... you never know! YOU MAY WIN A FUN PIECE OF HISTORY.Thanks for L@@K'IN

Please Note: There is no peeling or fading of the gel-coat...it's just the way the light reflected in some of the photos. Thanks.
