Story I purchased this as an unassembled body and a rusted out 68 bug for the donor chassis. I stripped the bug to the I beam, installed fiberglass floors and fabricated the assembly one step at a time. Completing it to the point of driver in six months. June of 2007. I recieved a top 25 trophy at a WI show in June also. (2nd time out). It's been fun but a lot of work. I would sell it so I can complete my next project. Thanks

#7 Berry Mini T C cab

buggy buggy
Body Original logo'd Berry Mini T C cab kit.
Frame 1970 VW
Story I am the proud owner of a 1970 Berry Mini T 2 which according to serial number is number 7 made that year. The story I was given by the owner is that she purchased the buggy new in 1970 from a dealer in Florida. The vehicle was made from a new 1970 VW Beetle and equipped with a cam and stroker kit along with many extras from a 1911-1914 model T.. The headlamps, tail lamps, inside mirror, radiator cap, side lamps and a few brass hardware items are all from the downer car. She informed that at the time VW's had been considered a toy more than a vehicle in the US and she purchased the converted VW for just a few thousand more than it would have cost for the Beetle. The tags on the side curtains and the interior had been custom made by a boat upholster in southern Florida.

The prior owner was married to a Doctor, she lived in Florida in the 1970's, moved to Brazil and lived there for a few years taking the Berry with her. She returned to the states at some point in the 1980's and her Berry came with her. Her and her husband moved to the Northern Pennsylvania area to retire in the early 90's and he died a few years later. When I purchased the vehicle about 12 years ago and it had 27,000 miles on the odometer. She has attempted to sell it for a very high price over a three or four year period of time but found few interested and fewer who could afford an expensive toy. She had electrical system problems, poor charging and due to age had difficulties getting in and out so she accepted my offer. The car is a van type Berry and is in very good condition considering that almost every part was original to her purchase in 1970. It is registered as a custom vehicle with the Berry Serial number.

I have added a couple of pictures taken last year. I had never seen one like this before and have been to many car shows without seeing another like it.

Story This 1969 Berry Mini-T was brought to Berry in Long Beach in the Summer of 1969 as a stock 1969 VW and transformed into the legendary Berry Mini-T that you see here. It was then driven from Long Beack, CA to New Jersey and stored for aproxamately 38 years in a wharehouse with several other collector cars. It is now used as a pleasure vehicle on the weekends and is basically as "stock" as it left Berry's facility in 1969. It has the original top, wood steering wheel, billet engine eccessories, wind wings, and fully finished interior as installed by Berry. A fun option is the "Skidder Brake", a "second stick" next to the gear shift lever that locks up either the driver or passengers side rear brakes for some fun maneuvers in the sand or in a parking lot!

Story We bought this buggy about a little over a month ago. We took the engine down to bare bones, cleaned it, painted it, added chrome, changed the generator over to an alternator, added electronic ignition, electric fuel pump and an MST serpentine belt system. We cleaned the rest of the rear area of the buggy added chrome axle caps. After that we added the interior. The interior was bare when we started. We put in the side panels, and made the back seat. We put in a VW floor mat. We took off the 14 inch wheels and put on 15s. We did all the work ourselves.
