Buggy


I remember seeing that buggy around Byron years ago - have you had it long or was it one of those buggies that got passed around over the years.

I have seen a lot worse and it will come up a treat.

What colour was it originally ?

Picked it up around a year ago, but i believe it has been the city bike for a while...

It is stated in the CB register as being Beige, but i haven't taken any paint off as yet.. planning on making the rust repairs and keeping it a rat. Keep the current sign writing and put it on a later model beetle pan

YIKES so that is what salt water does to a vehicle that isn't dipped into the paint bin..when its made...
there are many good anti-rust treatments and paints but that poor little country buggy wasn't loved....
Best of luck and many thanks for the photos..

Well after a number of years searching for the right panel guy to take on the task to repair the rust and maintain the patina. Brad from Concept Coach Works in Southport stepped up and is steaming ahead!

I dread to think of the cost of this, but for something so iconic to Australian VW history, I guess it all is worth it for the fun of driving the car in the end.
