Arturo Araluce recently brought his 1963 Bug for various upgrades. We started out by installing a 1776cc with EMPI Dual 40 IDF Carbs and a Freeway Flyer Transmission. We improved the suspension by adding a 2” Narrowed EMPI Beam, 2 1/2” EMPI Drop Spindle,Tandem Master Cylinder, and 4 Wheel Disc Brake Kit by EMPI;

Blue found his 1956 Bug body planted in a field. Blue picked it up for $ 300 and brought it to Peninsula Automotive where it remained until recently. Blue bought an IRS pan and welded in a link pinhead to mount the link pin beam. He flattened the floor pans so the car could sit all the way down on the ground before beginning the right hand conversion.

“What do you call that?” This is a common question I get asked even among people with sand toys.My response…“It’s a dune buggy. This is how they were built in the 1960s.”Before Bruce Meyers created the iconic Meyer’s Manx buggy, hot rod guys were creating home built dune buggies powered by everything from American V8 engines called “water pumpers” to air-cooled Corvair and VW power machines.

As the license plate says, this is my 85-year-old dad’s VW. This is the only used car he ever went looking for back in the early ‘80s. Many family members have driven it over the years, but the car always remained in my dad’s name. The car sat in a barn for about 20 years until 2009 when my dad asked me to get the car running again so the family could once again enjoy the experience ofdriving it.
