Omna Auto Bug Box: Beetle Conversion

As a follow up to our recent Vandetta post, here's a more old school Beetle van-ish conversion.  This one has a lot of needs, but it looks like it's all there.  This was done using a "Bug Box" kit from Omna-Auto back in the day.


The seller says this needs pan repair and a starter. If a started is truly all it needs to run, this could be a good deal.  The next owner will need to decide whether to repaint or embrace the "patina."

This really is a box grafted to the front half of a Beetle, but that's probably what you expected. We like the overall shape.  Note missing running board.  Does the block mean the emergency brake doesn't work?


The passenger side running board is also trying to part ways with this car.


Front is all Beetle and faded, but solid.  Chicken in background is a nice touch and we wonder what's up with that truck.


Rear is about as simple and square as it gets.  Quad tips are a nice touch!


Interior appears to be in better shape vs. the oxidized exterior.


This has a rear bench seat, rather than an open cargo area, though one could surely remove this.


The carpet lining the top is amazing!  It could only be better it made of shag.


Things are dirty but serviceable under the hood.


Stock 1964 engine is in place.  If truly stock, it's a 1200.

64 beetle with bug box kit. Original conversion with full Custom interior.
Original motor and transmission
Not a one of a kind. But the only one of it's kind !!
Car is in need of pan repair and a starter. Other than that the car is in great shape. Never wrecked never any damage to fiberglass kit. Other than the pan work there is only one spot of rust. It's at the bottom of the passenger side door posts. The interior is nearly PERFECT!!
 FIX this car up and be the only one with anything like it.
