Title: FOR SALE: Fiberglass dune buggy project
Post by: Justin on November 02, 2011, 02:22:58 pm
I have for sale a dune buggy on a shortened rolling 1970 rolling Chassis.  All that is there is the body and of course chassis less running gear.  This is perfect for one who who like to build and personalize your own buggy at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a body and locating a chassis and then having it shortened and fabricating the pans.

the pans are 10 guage steel and the outer frame is 1X2 steel tubing and is 16 guage steel. 

NO interior, windshield, Headlights, wiring harness.

Cutouts for tail lights are 1st gen Mustang buckets.

$750.00 Bring a std beetle towbar or trailer and load her up.  Car is located in Rock Springs GA 30 minutes south of Chattanooga Tenn..  I am Very Motivated to sell.

I started an Allison Buggy fund the day he put it up for sale.  My problem is when it gets up over a couple of hundred bucks, I see something I can't live without . . . like a junk 3 wheel Harley Davidson golf cart or a Beetle Kiddie Car.  If I had actually "saved" all the money I've "saved" I could buy Albert . . . and I wouldn't have near as much JUNK stored at my cabin.   ::)  Remind me that I need to have a long talk with myself about this someday.  Gott'a run.  Craigslist is calling.   ;D

If you are talking about Albert, No.  Matter of fact I might raise the price . I even thought about parting it out.

OK David, not every thing is about you.... Self -centered little.....
 ;D
AFAIK Make him an offer.
I was offered a reasonable price for it but am just not interested in an automobile I cannot even consider driving from Nov. - Feb.
You cannot make the pan for what he wants for the whole thing.

I don't know what his bottom dollar is on the buggy, but yeah, he will take less than he was originally asking.  Like KC said, make him an offer.  In case you are wondering, Alan shortened the chassis and made the pan for him . . . and again, it's not thin sheet metal, this is thick, heavy guage steel and it's done right.  The body isn't much to look at right now, but it's on a SOLID foundation.

Add a windshild frame and roll bar, some lights and a speedo, bolt an engine on it, do a little sanding and spray some paint at it . . . If you're willing to put the work into it, it could be a really nice buggy from not a whole lot of money.

Everything I do, have done , will do is all about me. I am self-centered . I'm not a missionary and I don't lean to the left like some people. You own a van and you are not going to drive it in the winter ? What a wimp. ;) ;D

He doesn't drive his van in the winter? I vote to revoke his man-card!!

"what we have here is a failure to communicate..."
Heck yeah I drove my buses in the winter, I have had the old "lets scrape ice off the inside of the window!" episode.
So man up old fart and roll Albert in the winter.

KC will drive a bus in the winter . . . his problem is he won't keep it long enough for the engine to warm up before he trades it off!

Heck, I don't even roll Albert in the summer time.  I did drive my Manx in the winter time. Snow was a blast. Even took my ex to work in the Manx when it snowed if we couldn't get anything else out of the driveway. The Manx had a good top, side curtains and heat. Albert only has heat. Ran out of money for a top. I worry about getting caught in the  rain more than the cold weather. With the type of Meds for my bum ticker I take I cannot handle being in the bright sun either. Real bummer.

I bought it, kept it for a minute or two, someone made me an offer I could not refuse and now it lives in Alabama.
It was a GREAT buggy, but it was just not me.  I needed more steel around me and it was so low that I could lean slightly and drag my fingertips on the asphalt if I wanted to...
I do miss David though.
