1966 VW Beetle – Robert’s Build – Shell

The Shell

This is going to be a real nice running / driving project for Robert. I have another chassis that has a majority of what he’s looking for and we are going to do some repair to the dash and make this a real nice classic hot rod Bug! Everything is getting shaved, and it will be a modern keyless / push button start car. Let’s start with where the body came into my possession, and get into the build.

I picked up a real clean body from a guy that was building trikes. I am sure that if I didn’t save this one it might have ended up as a trike.

The dash is the worst part of the shell, but will be taken care of during the build.

The shell went on a 1956 for the purpose of transporting it around. It was then transferred to a 1972, and will end up on a 1971 that is already set-up with a few things that are needed for this build.
