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
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
