 We have TWO IRS Chassis in stock, Now!  

One has stock Rear torsion bars.  

One has modified Rear Torsion Bars, so you will not be limited to the size of tires you put on the rear end.  GREAT for Dune Buggies that will get a lot of Off-Road Use!  You had better make up your mind quick, because 109 Dune Buggies may just build this to sell as a Rolling Chassis.  

The 80″ wheelbase Nostalgia chassis & fiberglass floor was designed to complement the line of fiberglass bodies that Berrien Buggy manufactures. The nostalgia chassis is designed to use stock VW type 1 running gear. 1958 through 1978 except super beetle. It’s stronger than a stock pan, plus saves time and allows tunnel access from underneath that you don’t get with a stock chassis. The Nostalgia chassis can be used with any body made to fit on a stock Beetle pan that has been shortened 14 1/2″ and uses stock pedal placement. The fiberglass floor features a ribbed design for added strength. The shiny, black, gel-coat finish won’t rust and doesn’t need to be painted. The chassis is made of square tubing, with a 2″ main frame & 1-1/2″ infrastructure, adding an extra 1-1/2″ of lift to the body for increased tire clearance. It features body mounting holes that are pre-drilled, sealed and recessed so that the bolts do not protrude below the chassis. The clutch cable tube, master cylinder mount, pedal mount and seat track mounting brackets are all factory installed, as well as the four front clamps that weld to the chassis. In addition, the fiberglass floor is pre-drilled and bolted in place.

* When you purchase a Chassis from 109 Dune Buggies, you will receive an MCO (Manufacturers Certificate of Origin) that will be used in place of a Title.  For fellow Texas residents, this will make the process regarding getting your Dune Buggy LEGALLY Titled/Registered in the State of Texas far easier, than if you had an Original OEM Chassis or no Title at all.
