For Sale: 1969 Volkswagen Dune Buggy in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1969 VW Dune Buggy Convertible

If everybody had an ocean
Across the U.S.A.
Then everybody'd be surfin'
Like Californi-a
You'd seem 'em wearing their baggies
Huarache sandals too
A bushy bushy blonde hairdo
Surfin' U.S.A.

So kids, let's cut school, grab our waxed boards and head for the beach but let's do it in style with this fiberglass bodied and VW chassis dune buggy. Yes we're gettin' rid of that rounded old stale body style and replacing it with the hottest thing since 1969, a dune buggy body that's a convertible with seating for 4. How cool is that?? Gnarly, ( but that word had not been invented yet so lets just say groovy!).

In tune with the times, metalflake blue bathes fiberglass body parts which were molded to mimic the original Meyers Manx. Sporting a fender and running board design, this "Buggy", (after Bug), has a squared off hood and grille, is bumpered in chrome, and has a low door line without an actual door, (Hop in ladies). Open fenders melt into a mini running board which continues as the rear fenders round their way above the rear wheels. The back of the buggy has a faux spare tire covering which hides the rear VW engine. Flanking this tire covering are the rear fenders with the elephant footprint tail lights. Below is a dual bar undulating chrome bumper with chromed dual exhaust just above. This buggy sports a white convertible top which attaches in front to a large framed rectangular picture window front glass, and has a plastic rear window. When in the down position, a rear storage area is noted, this one is sporting speakers for the stereo. 14 and 15-inch chromed deep dish steel wheels with central moon caps complete the look and now its time to go play some beach blanket bingo!

Let the sun shine in as it is close to the dawning of the age Aquarius. It can bathe upon low back bomber style racing bucket seats covered in black vinyl with triangular stitched tufting and buttons in their intersections. This abounds throughout on the door panels and rear bench. A rally steering wheel fronts the metal flake fiberglass dash which has basically 2 rectangular padded black vinyl panels within a field of blue. These panels have the speedometer, fuel gauge and some lights and knobs and a pull. In front of the passenger is another panel which has a green LCD digital Micronta clock/tachometer and canted towards the driver volt and oil pressure gauges. Below the dash over here is also a Jensen AM/FM/CD player stereo. Nice thick pile carpeting covers the floors and make sure to dip your feet into the Pacific before entering as I don't want sand in this thing...Oh wait, it's NOT a THING, it's a Buggy!

In back is the VW 1600cc engine with a recently overhauled 2-barrel carb and 4-speed manual transmission. The rear axle is a 4.120 final drive. The engine has headers and not much else to tell but it works great!

A sturdy VW frame with 4 wheel independent suspension, drum braking and no rust for the floor pans, just rustproofing is seen while up in the air. Our consignor notes that the brake system has been recently flushed, has new wheel cylinders. new shoes, and new hardware as well. The wheel bearings have been recently repacked and we see a newfuel filter for the recently flushed fuel lines. Tubular headers handle the exhale with the assistanceof glasspack style mufflers.

Sounds like a VW, handles like a VW, steers and shifts like a VW but has the look of the beach and harkens back to the metal flake paint era where beach bonfires, surfing and just good old fashioned fun. We're all the rage and live large. A few non operational functions were noted, such as the gas gauge, intermittent radio operation and the driver's seat not always locking in place every now and again.

Break out the Mr. Zogs, wax up your Dextra and let's hit the surf! But the beach action is only half the fun, the journey there is where it's at! Metalflake blue, room for 4 and that classic VW sound....Honey, what do ya think about moving to the West Coast? I'm thinking about becoming the Big Kahuna...
