The most frequently asked question, after our purchase of Berrien Buggy, was, " are you going to offer a 4 seat body?" Our answer was "yes, as soon as we can." It took us about 10 months, but here it is, the GENESIS! Styled after our classic Nostalgia, the new 4 seat GENESIS body is great for family fun or a ride with friends. Using a stock VW Beetle, 94 1/2" wheelbase, the GENESIS requires no shortening of the chassis, making the build much less complicated. It does require the use of a re enforcing kit, mounted between the frame and body. The purpose of this kit is to give the necessary strength needed because of the longer wheelbase. Available in 34 beautiful gelcoat colors.
Better yet, purchase our new GENESIS CHASSIS. This frame is designed specifically for our GENESIS body. The GENESIS CHASSIS is jig built, using new steel, with a fiberglass floor pan. Patterned after our Nostalgia, the GENESIS CHASSIS uses 2"X3"X 1/8" mild steel tubing for the main frame rails, instead of the 2"X2" tubing of the Nostalgia chassis. By increasing the tubing size we have added the necessary strength the longer wheelbase requires. The GENESIS CHASSIS is designed to use standard VW Beetle components.
