Make/Model: Volkswagen Dune Buggy

Year: 1974

Brand of Paint Used: Krylon

Special Modifications: This custom dune buggy features a Berry Mini-T style fiberglass body. Red metal flake powder-coated wheels. Handmade wooden surfboard roof and chest storage. The “Swamp Surfer” came about after I came across a full chassis dune buggy body. I had an old VW bug as a donor car. As with my other low budget builds I used whatever I had laying around. The front bumper is an Upside down bicycle handle bar, the shifter was made with an antique wrench from my uncle’s old tool box. Wheels were old rusty rims that I had powder coated. Not many surfboards out here in South Louisiana, so I built my own. I did the old patina worn metal look on a fiberglass body which has people scratching their heads at the local cruises.
