VW-Based Camaro Replica/Buggy

Although I’ve seen a couple of these for sale over the years, this heavily “buggified” second-gen Camaro-style body mounted on a shortened VW Beetle chassis (with a secondary tube frame on the rear) is still very rare so I’ve been able to find out very little about it — if anyone knows anything about the history of the manufacturer, please do mention it in the comments. The body is a single piece with no doors (although this example does have removable t-tops) and is finished in a metalflake green. I’m not sure if this one has been modified to fit a new windshield and top, because most of the ones I’ve seen (one, two) are running a flat windshield with no top.

Anyway, Wayne, the current owner, is asking $5,000 — amusing because of course an actual Camaro is dime-a-dozen — or is willing to trade for a beach buggy or motorcycle. He’s located in Manchester, KY, and can be reached at felicia@newwavecomm.net.

    In the mid 70’s, there was an article in either “Popular Mechanics” or “Popular Science” on this Camaro kit car. St the time, I tried to contact the company (they were back east) but never got a response. Have tried to find the molds for this car for a few years, but no go. Would sure like to have one someday, but probably wouldn’t be able to fit into it now.

    These Camaro replica’s are quite funny but cool at the sametime, id love to see someone toss in an LS1 backed by a Porsche G50

    I know where there is a much better looking one that is not complete. It is a pan and a beautiful convertible body. It’s styled more like a rs z28 1970 not a 71. Very clean and is a 2 seat convertible. Is bright orange.
