For Sale in our Ft. Lauderdale showroom is this awesome 1984 Volkswagen Sand Rail. At the end of WW2 thousands of soldiers returning from the war had spent years driving Jeeps, tanks, and half-tracks with few or no roads. Having disposable income, these GIs formed the original core of off-road enthusiasts. At first, they used surplus Jeeps and cut-up cars to build their off-road vehicles. Soon they noticed that with little more than a skid plate, they could get a stock air-cooled Volkswagen Beetle to go almost anywhere. As time passed, enthusiasts saw the need for lighter, more powerful sand vehicles that could easily climb higher dunes. Many people started experimenting with home built super light weight vehicle frames made from metal tubing. Many of these vehicles were nothing more than a frame, engine, transmission, wheels, and one or two seats. Because of their versatility, light weight and simplicity the air-cooled VW engine and tranny were the power plant of choice for many owners. It also offered the perfect body arrangement. By placing the motor and transmission in the rear of the frame it allowed the front of the Sand Rail to remain extremely light and able to “float” over the sand dunes. It also kept the heat created by the motor from blowing into the faces of the driver and passengers. It’s no wonder Sand Rails are often considered to have the perfect balance between power and weight. Unlike your golf game, you will never be trapped in the sand with this baby! If you don’t happen to live close to the beach, the desert or any other kind of sand, don’t worry! This super cool ’84 VW Sand Rail is complete street legal. So, you can also rip up the city roads in this one of a kind Big Boy toy! Powered by 2275cc engine and a 4 speed manual transmission, this VW Sand Rail will have you smiling from ear to ear as you carve your own path through uncharted dunes, or even when you’re just taking that right into the shopping plaza. Pick your kid up at school in this thing, and they are instantly the coolest kid in the neighborhood! But with the way this Sand Rail roars, a school might not be the best place to pull up to more than once. But do it once, just to let them know. Options on this 1984 VW Sand Rail include: AM/FM Radio, and Seat Belts, Neon Lights underneath and Mag Chrome wheels.
