Description

The car we offer is a model produced between 1969 and 1970, one of the first built during the debut of Mario Zodiaco. Engine and chassis derived from the Beetle 1200. Engine totally overhauled, as well as the entire chassis, front end, rear end, suspension, gearbox and brake system. Two-seater with leather sports bucket seats. Bodywork entirely restored.
Removed vehicle to be re-registered.

Model history and curiosity

In Italy, the first dune buggy appeared in 1968, distributed in kit form by Mario Zodiaco's All Cars company from Bologna. The kit included the fiberglass bodywork, the windshield, the headlights, as well as the connections and bolts necessary for attachment to the floor of the Beetle, which however had to be shortened by 273 mm. The basic kit was offered at a price of 371,400 Lire, but could be enriched with numerous optional accessories, such as the hard-top, seats, wide-section tires and roll cage.

The sight of the vehicle on the roads of Emilia caused such a sensation that Zodiaco developed the idea of starting the licensed production of the Deserter in Italy. Having overcome the bureaucratic difficulties relating to the approval of a vehicle based on the suitably shortened Beetle chassis, Autozodiaco s.r.l. was established in Bologna in May 1969.
