This VW Dune Buggy project has been kicking around the Theonomics shop for awhile now, and it's time to build it. This is the chassis from a 1973 Volkswagen beetle. the engine is a rebuilt 1600cc Dual Port. I got this VW chassis from the Bradley GT 2 kitcar that I recently turned into a 4x4 offroader(link below). I decided That a good option would be to build a VW dune buggy using all the left over parts. The chassis was cut and shortened 22 inches. I thought it would be a good idea to build a custom roll cage, because we will likely be rolling this thing! This will have a custom made windshield added which was cut from another windshield. Most of the parts are from the original VW Beetle, but I did make some additions like the 8th inch diamond plate aluminum used for floors and side panels, a custom stainless steel battery box, some heavy duty military dodge headlights, International Harvester tail lights, and a bunch of other things here and there.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy seeing it all come together.

Here is what I did to the original kitcar body!

This car was born on 05/03/1955 with chassis number 80510 and was delivered in this signal red with a cream/Black Acella Bast Leatherette interior. Besides the headlights and the changed dashboard gages panel, this car should be completely original and it really looked accordingly. The car was bought in 1962 for $1642 and the previous owner drove it in 4 American states up until 1985. Then it was put away in a barn until 2014. If I am not mistaken the crankshaft bearings of these cars could not handle use on tracks and races and probably that explanes why the car had its engine rebuilt in 1965.

This is Rod Emory's fourth Porsche 356 Special. It is unique and is the only open car in the lineage. But that won't last long. These Specials are built in consultation with the intended owner and each one carries with it a unique spirit and flair. This car has several Spyder cues, but also has modern equipment like 911 trailing arms and Boxster brakes.

A Special can be built for you. Let us know your desires and we will coordinate everything.
