VW Blast From The Past: 1972 Kellison Sandpiper Dune Buggy

For the most part, cars from the mid-1970s are generally unfun to drive – the fuel crisis and stricter emissions regulations greatly diminished their street-legal enjoyment, and safety regulations ensured they were unattractive and lacking in driving excitement. Nevertheless, it’s impossible to completely extinguish the passion of car enthusiasts, and they always find a way. Thus, emerging from the difficult Malaise era was the custom dune buggy movement, which transformed old, sluggish VW bugs into delightful beach cruisers that were a joy to drive… with the caveat that beach cruising has long been banned, so they are only suitable for street driving. Find this 1972 Kellison Sandpiper Dune Buggy offered for $18,000 in Steubenville, PA via craigslist.
