Join us in this episode as we bring you a modern classic, the Beck 550 Spyder.

The Beck 550 is a reproduction of the famed Porsche 550 Spyder.

We are both privileged and honored to host Mr. Chuck Beck back on our channel.

The car, which started as an anecdote between friends, launched one of the most successful reproduction product lines to date.

3,000 cars later, these aren’t your average “kit” car. These are very much a real, hand built automobile with craftsmanship to match.

The featured in this video is the personal car of Mr. Beck’s son Charlie.

The car featured is fitted with a 130hp VW air cooled motor but... at 1200lbs, the car is anything but slow.

So strap in and come along as we sample this modern classic which delivers a driving experience like no other.

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!
