Salvaged from the woods in NE Florida. Been abandoned for 50ish years. Built on shortened bus frame. Appears to be painted industrial yellow. The only numbers I can find are the steering gear box, which says 66 bus. The 15" wide rims in the back are wide fives with VW stamped on them. Definitely hand built, but seems too well done for a backyard hack. All fenders have a rolled edge. Interesting find.
Any ideas? Sell it, scrap it, bury it?...

I think it's pretty cool! If you have enough land to justify it, it would be fun to toss an engine in it and rip it around.

Cool find.
Throw an engine on it and enjoy.

A side by side before someone figured out that too many people would shell out $30k for a toy.

Know a guy in Oklahoma that the rear frame section would help.


Neat little rig though
