Description:

No, your eyes aren''t deceiving you, this Jeep has a VW Beetle motor in back. Called a Scamp, it''s a purpose-built vehicle that uses a Beetle engine and transmission, as well as the front axle, to create a fun little runner that''s capable as well as economical. You''ll never get tired of the double-takes you''ll get every time you take it out. Built in 1981 and recently restored, the Scamp is a tribute to the rugged Jeep CJ3A and looks awfully convincing, even up close. There isn''t a lot of Beetle DNA in it, as even the frame is a custom tubular steel affair and not a Beetle floor pan, so it has the right proportions and ground clearance. The body is all steel and has been nicely finished following hours of laborious fitting, sanding, and adjusting to get everything just right. The paint was redone in 2009 in brilliant Porsche Guards Red, and the retina-searing results mean that you will not be sneaking around in this cool little trucklet. Things like the roll bar and rear bumper have been powdercoated for unbeatable durability, and the overall look is like a 7/8-scale Jeep. All the Jeep styling cues are there, from the upright grille and bright stainless steel front bumper, to the folding windshield, and a bikini top is included to shield you from the hot sun or in case you''re caught out in the rain. The black vinyl interior features a pair of racing buckets up front and a small bench in back, again duplicating the Jeep''s accommodations, just in a smaller scale. Also like the Jeep, accommodations are intentionally spartan, with simplicity being the cornerstone of reliability-critical when you''re somewhere remote. The seats and carpets were recently reupholstered by professionals, giving it a highly polished look, and the simple center-mounted instrument panel covers the basics. The transmission is the Beetle''s 4-speed with a shifter lifted from a microbus and the cool two-tone steering wheel gives the Scamp seriously quick reflexes. Mechanically, this is a 1973 VW Beetle, with a recently rebuilt 1641 cc air-cooled flat four mounted out back. Featuring dual Weber carburetors, it''s a surprisingly potent performer that scoots through traffic and over sand dunes with ease. There''s a new CP1 wiring harness that was installed just a few weeks ago, and the engine compartment is fully dressed with a ton of diamond plate and polished aluminum. Underneath, there''s a sturdy 2x4 tube frame that looks stout enough to support a bridge, and the only obvious VW components are the engine, transaxle and front end, with everything else being unique to the Scamp. Fresh drum brakes are more than adequate on this lightweight, and the 15-inch American Racing wheels wear fresh rubber that''s less than 100 miles old. Where the Jeep was deliberate and clunky, this Scamp is playful and agile, and it''s ideally suited to light-duty offroading. A fun little vehicle and I guarantee you''ll never see another. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom. For more information, please call (678) 279-1609 or toll free (877) 367-1835.
