Barris T Buggy - $1500 (Gainesville)
Date: 2011-03-04, 6:00PM EST
Barris T Buggy body sitting on a 1958 V.W pan with a good running 1962 40hp VW engine.
The pan and body will need to be completely restored.
I have passenger side pans and a few other misc parts to go with the buggy.
This would make a great addition to any Volkswagen or George Barris collection.
Im asking $1500.00 o.b.o I need to sell asap so feel free to make an offer.
I read the article below in a recent issue of Hot Rod magazine.
Ya gotta love the beauty and simplicity of a dune buggy. Get a VW Bug, remove the body, and drop on an open, fiberglass beach cruiser-topless fun doesn't get much easier or cheaper than that. Hence, buggies were all the rage in the '60s and '70s, which also means they weren't spared the creative stylings of customizer George Barris. These Barris T-Buggies were recently discovered in separate locations in the Portland, Oregon, area and are now awaiting restoration in California by collector Randy Carlson. It's not known exactly how many T-Buggies were built, but the current estimate is somewhere around five of each model, with only a few being operational. Randy is no stranger to restorations of wild vehicles and completed the resto of a Barris Phase 4 Fun Buggy a few years back. That car has been bouncing through the auction circuit recently. A registry group has been started on Facebook for fans and owners of the Barris Buggies, and hopefully others will rise to the surface.'
*** That one listed in L.A. is really looking sweet - for $1,000 - as compared to this one ***
