Gobex Leisure Buggies – South Africa

• CATEGORIES: VEEP (VW Jeep), Scamp, Others

gobex_logoUPDATE: The status of Gobex is unknown. Their website is no longer active.

Here’s a couple unusual fiberglass, rear engine powered jeeps sold by a South African company called Gobex.  These are updated versions of the VEEP.  This might make a fun, different, race jeep body.   The exchange rate between the US dollar and the South African Rand is approx $100 – R863, so the CJ2 Jade Jeep Kit costs R14,615 or $1697.68.

“MISSION:  To become the leading provider of beach buggies, both long wheel base and short wheel base units. We manufacture the popular CJ2 and CJ6 replica Jeeps.  The Company started in 1983 as Steve’s buggies on the South Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal South-Africa. Over the years, as part of ongoing researh and development, a number of products have been refined and manufactured.”

I found this body, which I believe is a Gobex body and not a Veepster body, at this site.

    Hi Allen,

    It looks like to me that they died. I’ll have one of my South African contacts check it out.

    Craig,

    This company does not appear to be in business any more. Kits still might exist, but you’ll have to track down the former executives of the company to learn more.

    Hi Fernan,

    It looks like the company went out of business or changed names. I haven’t seen their site online since 2010.
