Der beetle bus build off

Recommended Posts

Thanks cobraman & Intmd8r

I'm going out to buy another one of these soon and I'm crossing my fingers that I get one of the green ones. I've got an idea brewing for it....

Say? Didn't you sell this on Ebay? If so isn't it  about time to build another one? Lol!

Been a while, but I've made some progress over the last day or so...

The chassis is pretty much done, the Corvair engine is in place, and a bed floor, ladder rack, and front bumper guard have been fabricated. Next major project will be the interior.

Body nastiness is dialed in...

I strapped an alien on a pogo stick to the passenger's seat...

And littered a shelf with a trophy, VW emblem, and some nudie mags...

The truck itself is done- eventually it will be pulling a trailer loaded with an abandoned dune-buggy project.

I'm almost done with my current one, but depending on the timeline I could be in. I have plans for one more kit to be used as a tow vehicle and at least another body to be used as a trailer.

 

My current build.

I've been working on another one these latley and my son has one he's building as well. Maybe we can spark some interest here with some more builds? I'm sad to see some of the pics get dumped, there were some cool builds on here last year...
