For Sale: Type 35 Bugatti Replica

Reluctantly selling my replica of a Type 35 Bugatti. This car was my grandfather's and I inherited it shortly before he passed away, but it's just not practical for me and the cost of shipping it across the country wouldn't be worth the trouble.

The car is built on a modified 1966 VW beetle platform. The engine has been upgraded to 1600cc and the electrical system has been upgraded to 12v.

The car is fully registered and road legal with a clean SC title. The engine was re-built completely in 1999 and has only done a few miles since its rebuild, though I am unsure of the exact mileage on the car.

Custom touches include a dummy hand brake, shatter-proof Lexan Brooklands-style windshields, turned dash, headlights with built-in turn signals, Model A taillights, Model A wheels and tires, and hand-made leather hood straps.

This car has won multiple prizes in the kit car and specials category at VW shows across South Carolina. I am reluctant to sell a car that usually wins at the shows!

Asking $8500 OBO. Will consider a trade for a sensible classic car in good driving condition. No project cars!

The car is located in South Carolina. Contact me by commenting here with a good e-mail address I can reach you by and I will put you in touch with my father who currently has the car.
