The classic shape that started it all. The NOSTALGIA is our version of an old standard. A 2 seat buggy with room for a jump seat or storage. The NOSTALGIA body mounts on an 80" wheelbase chassis. The body comes standard with the hood fitted and mounted. Molded in fiberglass with a durable "gel coat" finish, the NOSTALGIA needs no painting. Choose from a large variety of "standard" colors or for an additional charge add some sparkle with a "metal flake" finish.
The NOSTALGIA can be mounted on a 14 1/2" shortened, VW beetle, floor pan, but, we suggest you purchase our jig built, square tube, NOSTALGIA frame. Our frame is built with new steel, and makes your build much easier, with a stronger frame, yet still uses standard VW Type-1 components.
NOSTALGIA body, standard colors, order pn. C058-BB307 (specify color) - $1,637.95
NOSTALGIA body, metal flake colors, order pn. C058-BB308 (specify color) $2,389.87
There are a variety of options available for the NOSTALGIA body.
The most frequently asked question, after our purchase of Berrien Buggy, was, " are you going to offer a 4 seat body?" Our answer was "yes, as soon as we can." It took us about 10 months, but here it is, the GENESIS ! Styled after our classis Nostalgia, the new 4 seat GENESIS body is great for family fun or a ride with friends. Using a stock VW Beetle, 94 1/2" wheelbase, the GENESIS requires no shortening of the chassis, making the build much less complicated. It does require the use of a re enforcing kit, mounted between the frame and body. The purpose of this kit is to give the necessary strength needed because of the longer wheelbase.
Better yet, purchase our new GENESIS FRAME. This frame is designed specifically for our GENESIS body. The GENESIS FRAME is jig built, using new steel, with a fiberglass floor pan. Patterned after our Nostalgia frame, the GENESIS FRAME uses 2"X3"X 1/8" mild steel tubing for the main frame rails, instead of the 2"X2" tubing of the Nostalgia Frame. By increasing the tubing size we have added the necessary strength the longer wheelbase requires. The GENESIS FRAME is designed to use standard VW Beetle components.
GENESIS BODY: STANDARD GEL-COAT COLORS, C058-BB318 (specify color) - $2,399.58
GENESIS BODY: METAL FLAKE COLORS, C058-BB319 (specify color) $3,022.45.
A classic buggy with a slightly different look. The LANCER is an 80" wheelbase body. A differently shaped hood, slightly raised fenders and an extended rear deck with a removable engine cover distinguish the LANCER.
It retains the NOSTALGIA dash, and overall dimensions. The LANCER is a 2 seat body with a rear jump seat or storage area. The body comes standard with the hood fitted and mounted. Molded in fiberglass with a durable "gel coat" finish, the LANCER needs no painting.Choose from a large list of "standard" colors, or, for an additional charge add some sparkle with a "metal flake" finish.
The LANCER also mounts on a 14 1/2" shortened VW floor pan, but, we suggest you purchase our jig built, square tube, NOSTALGIA frame. This frame is built using new steel tubing, and makes your build much easier, with a stronger frame, which still accepts standard VW type-1 components.
