And it was called the “Veepster”. The Sun Valley Veepster, to be exact.
Interestingly, although it used the drivetrain and several other parts from a Volkswagen, it was not based on a Volkswagen chassis. Instead, it had its own specific tube-frame chassis. It also featured a one-piece fiberglass body, which is not unusual for a kit car. I imagine as a daily driver, it’d be about as practical as a real Vee- er, Jeep, but with better fuel economy and worse off-road capabilities.
