Truggychero: 1969 Volkswagen Beetle Buggy

The Type 1 Volkswagen Beetle is a polarizing piece of automotive history. There are many who laud its long production run and basic ruggedness…while others decry its lack of features and comical proportions and questionable origins. However, if you rebody that Type 1 with something Beachy…suddenly the critics are decidedly less vociferous. And what if you made it not only Beachy, but simultaneously Woody and El Caminoey as well? Welcome to automotive nirvana, my friends. It has been a long journey, but this is it. Find this 1969 Volkswagen Beetle Buggy offered for $10,000 in Asheville, NC via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

Runs and drives as it should with no issues.
Cooper tires on aluminum wheels.
Comes with a tow bar and standard 5 wire trailer connector so the lights mirror those of the tow vehicle.
Current owner added front grill, interchangeable hood ornaments, wood in bed, wood bed rails, locking wooden keg for safe storage in the bed, carpet, GPS speedometer, multi-color halo headlights, ground projection light, and FM/blue tooth marine music player and speakers.
Dragon theme appears in multiple locations on the vehicle. Hood ornaments, engravings on bed rails, engraving on the storage keg, on the speedometer, ground projection light under the frontend and emblem on the side panels behind the front wheels.
The keg and bed rails are easily removed, and the original vinyl bed cover can be installed.
The last photo shows original before additions with vinyl cover in place. Some snaps are missing.
Convertible hard top can be removed by removing 4 bolts, but it is a two-person task.
Seats OK but could be recovered and some small imperfections in the paint.

I am not looking to trade. Cash is King. I do not need any help selling this and I am not in a position where I have to sale. I don’t use it as much as I used to and hate to see it setting around when someone could be enjoying it. Please do not call or text after 9:00PM EST.
