The 80″ wheelbase Nostalgia chassis & fiberglass floor was designed to compliment the line of fiberglass bodies that Berrien Buggy manufactures. The nostalgia chassis is designed to use stock VW type 1 running gear. 1958 thru 1978 except super beetle. It’s stronger than a stock pan, plus saves time and allows tunnel access from underneath that you don’t get with a stock chassis. The Nostalgia chassis can be used with any body made to fit on a stock Beetle pan that has been shortened 14 1/2″ and uses stock pedal placement. The fiberglass floor features a ribbed design for added strength. The shiny, black, gel-coat finish won’t rust and doesn’t need to be painted. The chassis is made of square tubing, with a 2″ main frame & 1-1/2″ infrastructure, adding an extra 1-1/2″ of lift to the body for increased tire clearance. It features body mounting holes that are pre-drilled, sealed and recessed so that the bolts do not protrude below the chassis. The clutch cable tube, master cylinder mount, pedal mount and seat track mounting brackets are all factory installed, as well as the four front clamps that weld to the chassis. In addition, the fiberglass floor is pre-drilled and bolted in place. A narrowed rear torsion area (swing axle only) is also an availble option.
