PLEASE NOTE: Shipping for frames and fiberglass bodies is calculated separately and sent to the customer for approval. It is NOT included in the shipping total for your shopping cart order. If you can not take delivery at our Detroit, Michigan, USA location, shipping charges may range from $400-$1000 or more for assembled chassis. The WARRIOR Chassis Knock-down kit ships for around $125, depending on your location inside the United States.

For a fully welded chassis, there is an additional $100 core charge for the torsion assembly, assuming you do not provide us with an exchange torsion.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you sell roll cages for Fiberglass Bodied buggies?
We don't have a source of roll cages for fiberglass-bodied dune buggies. If we come up with one, we'll post if on the site. Berrien has been considering building them, but they're not yet in production.

Do you know where I can get a soft top for a Manx Style buggy?
Unfortunately we don't know of anyone making a soft top for a Manx, Nostalgia, Citation, etc. Your best bet may be to go to a boat shop and have a top custom made.

Who started making dune buggies originally?
Fiberglass dune buggies first appeared in the mid-60’s. Bruce Meyers started it all with the Meyers Manx. We have a book available, “The Dune Buggy Handbook: The A-Z of VW-Based Buggies Since 1964.

How much does it cost to ship the a Nostalgia or a Citation body?
The Citation and Nostalgia are very expensive to ship; generally over $1000.00. We recommend that anyone wishing to buy one pick it up at our facility in Detroit, Michigan.
