Need a runabout for your out-of-town property? What about buying your older kids something to tool around your acreage in, something to bop about between the house and the lake or the house and the beach? Consider this 1970 VW Dune Buggy that has been recently refurbished and has had the same loving owner for the past five years. It is titled as a 1970 Volkswagen.

The orange fiberglass body is in overall great shape, with no major blemishes visible. The windshield is in good, original order, the engine in the rear is clean and accessible and there’s a small cargo area behind the seats, perfect for a cooler, picnic basket and other small items.

This buggy rolls on newer BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A tires, size 30x9.50R15LT tires all around. Each tire is mounted on a vented alloy wheel. The wheels and tires are all in very good order.

Out back is a Volkswagen 1.6L flat, air-cooled four-cylinder engine with dual exhausts. Backing it up is a four-speed manual transmission.

Inside, the car’s bucket seats are in very good order. There’s a three-spoke, aftermarket steering wheel facing the driver that looks very good. The shifter is in good, original order. The lone gauge is a VDO speedometer in the center of the instrument panel.

For dune buggies built on the chassis of an existing vehicle, the Volkswagen Beetle was commonly used as the basis for the buggy but this particular Buggy is built on a full custom tube chassis! The model is nicknamed Bug, therefore the term “buggy.” The Beetle platform chassis was used because the rear engine layout improves traction, the air-cooled engine avoids the complexities and failure points associated with a water-cooled engine, the front suspension was considered cheap and robust and the spare parts from Volkswagen were cheap and readily available. Dune buggies with glass-reinforced plastic (fiberglass) bodies come in many shapes and sizes.

The original fiberglass dune buggy was the 1964 “Meyers Manx” built by Bruce Meyers. Meyers designed his fiberglass bodies as a “kit-car,” using the Volkswagen Beetle chassis. Many other companies worldwide have copied the original fiberglass dune buggy. These types of dune buggies are known as “clones.”

Whether you have one house or four, this dune buggy makes for a great runabout to transport someone or some small cargo around your property. Swing by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today to check this little gem out for yourself.
