1969 Haz Dune Buggy

Whilst most of the time when looking for a new contraption to port oneself around in, our attention will turn to the latest and greatest, gadget laden offerings but, let’s face it, some of the best machines were made decades ago and a prime example of this is the awesome looking 1969 Haz Dune Buggy which could soon be yours as it’s up for auction at RM Auctions / Sotherby’s.

This phenomenal looking steed is definitely one for the beach dweller as it’s unlike to fare too well in inner city London, for example, but if you’ve got plenty of outdoor space in which to open it up, the 1969 Haz Dune Buggy definitely looks like a hell of a lot of fun.

Born from the free-spirited 1960’s California beach scene, this first rate vehicle boasts¬†53 bhp, 1,500 cc VW OHV air-cooled horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine, four-speed manual transmission, front torsion bar suspension, trailing arm rear suspension, and four-wheel brakes.
