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.
