Update – Gas tank was full of rust and brake master cylinder frozen. Removed the windshield , unbolted steering column and lifted hood. Now I was able to take out tank and master.On the tank the filler spout had to be cut and relocated to the center. We also had to hammer in the bottom of the tank a bit to sit in its proper place. Hopefully next week i will be able to experience this new original buggy. Added new American racing wheels and tires
- I am very excited about my new purchase. I bought this off the original owner. Richard worked at a jacuzzi company who did some of the fiberglass work on the buggies back in the 60’s and 70’s. He shared with me that when he was building the mold he was right there and had them add extra glass to the body. I bought this buggy on only pictures from the internet and currently being picked up east of San Francisco. I made this purchase knowing that the car does not run and has been sitting for some time. My plan is to buy a new battery, replace fuel lines, adjust valves, clean carb and fire her up. Cant wait. Pictures are the 4 that were on the post and I will add more after I snap a few myself. I love the pipes, gold crank pulley, deep chrome wheels and much more.
Bringin buggies back! Stay inspired no matter what.
