1971 VEEP Arroyo Grande, CA $4500

• CATEGORIES: VEEP (VW Jeep) & The Jago

UPDATE: Price dropped to $4500.

(04/20/2015) The seller suggests that Hadley Engineering’s VEEP business later became Wil-Mac Product’s SCAMP. It’s the first I’ve run across this, but it could be true. The recessed lights and the circle filler cap on the fuel inlet (this did not have an underseat tank) are consistent with the VEEP.

As you may know the Veep is a 1970s-era kit car that combines an authentic Willys Jeep body with VW Beetle running gear on a custom box-section frame.

This is a complete running car in great mechanical shape. It starts easily, idles smoothly, accelerates and brakes normally and is a thrill to drive.

The all steel body is in good/fair shape. The hood, fenders and body tub are mostly solid. But there is some rotten metal on the bottom of the body tub (see photos). The frame is solid but does have surface rust. The windshield glass was cut a little small so there’s some rubber filler on the right end.

This Veep uses the running gear from a 1971 Beetle and features the following:

“2004 DUNE BUGGY, VW VERSION OF A JEEP, CALLED A VEEP! ALSO HAS OTHER NAMES: VEEPSTER, SCAMP, GPV (GENERAL PURPOSE VEHICLE) OR A CONVERTIBLE. I JUST CALL IT MY SHOW CAR!

THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST, COOLEST VEHICLE YOU WILL EVER COME ACROSS AND A MULTIPLE FIRST PLACE SHOW WINNER… THIS WAS VOLKSWAGEN VERSION OF AN OLD WILLY’S / WILLIS JEEP, KNOWN AS A VEEP! THIS ONE WAS FACTORY BUILT IN CALIFORNIA FROM SMALL COMPANY IN 2004. AND THIS IS NOT THE CHEAPER VERSION THAT THEY TAKE A SOLID FIBERGLASS BODY AND JUST SET IT ON VW CHASIS. YET, THIS ONE HAND BUILT OUT OF A COMBINATION OF STRONG FIBERGLASS, ALUMINIUM AND STEEL BODY PARTS WITH VERY STRONG BOXED TUBE STEEL FRAME / CHASIS THAT TIES INTO THE STEEL BUMPERS AND ROLL CAGE. NEEDLESS TO SAY, IT IS BUILT EXTREMLY WELL. IT COMBINES THE RELIABILITY AND CHEAP MAINTANCE OF THE VOLKSWAGEN WITH THE SUPER TOUGH BODY OF ALUMINIUM AND RUST FREE FIBERGLASS. PARTS ARE SIMPLE, CHEAP AND EASY TO OBTAIN THROUGH AND VW SHOPS AND JEEP OFFERS MULTIPLE PRODUCTS TO CUSTOMIZE ANY WAY YOU DESIRE. THESE VEHICLES ARE GREAT OFF ROAD AND I KNOW IT WOULD BE BETTER AND GIVE IT MORE OF THE JEEP LOOK IF I RAN THE BIGGER WHITE WAGON WHEELS AND TIRES. YET I USE IT AS DRIVER TO WORK AND TAKE THE HIGHWAY TO THE CAR SHOWS, SO I WENT WITH THE WHEELS TO ACOMPANY THAT. AND WAS TOLD THAT RIMS ARE QUITE RARE AND WORTH PRETTY PENNY. I JUST LIKE THE WAY THEY LOOK AND RIDE DOWN THE ROAD. WEATHER YOU WANT TO WIN 1ST PLACE AT YOUR LOCAL CAR SHOW, ADVERTISE YOUR BUSINESS, TOW BEHIND YOUR RV (VERY LIGHTWEIGHT), TURN IT INTO FULL BLOWN JEEP, GO OFF ROAD OR THE SAND DUNES, USE IN PARADE, HAVE A ONE OF A KIND DUNE BUGGY, OR JUST PLAIN AND SIMPLE AND DRIVE IT, YOU WILL NOT FIND ONE NICER. YOU PROBABLY CANT EVEN FIND ANOTHER ONE…

VEEP Brochure and Assembly Instructions

Paul was kind enough to share this very rare VEEP brochure in the hopes that it helps the VEEP owners out there who struggle to find information about their vehicle. Below are photos of the basic brochure. I also have assembly instructions that I haven’t scanned yet. Great stuff! One unique item I hadn’t notice before was the stamped ‘VEEP’ in the hood. I’ve never seen that in any production VEEPs. If you ever run across a hood with VEEP stamped in it, I’d be interested to get some photos.

VEEP, VEEPSTERS and the SCAMP

• CATEGORIES: Features, VEEP (VW Jeep) & The Jago

I’ve known about the VEEP Jeep Kit, from Hadley Engineering out of Costa Mesa, California, but I recently learned about two additional VW kit jeeps: The Veepster and the SCAMP. However, I’m still not clear what differentiates a VEEP from a SCAMP or a VEEPSTER.

The SCAMP VW KIT was built and sold out of Redding, California, in the early 70s. I found this ad at the TheSamba.com website

scamp-veep-ad-thesamba

Here’s a beautiful 1973 SCAMP (lots of pictures), but I couldn’t say if this is entire stock or not:

1973-scamp5

The VEEPSTER VW kit car was sold by VEEPSTER, LLC, out of Mesa, Arizona, according to Kit Car Guide. Curiously, a Czech Republic site and thesamba.com site show that a VEEPSTER VW Kit was sold by Sun Valley Autotech out of Scottsdale, Arizona. The following two pics from this site reportedly show a VEEPSTER.

veepster-front Veepsterrear

E-VEEPSTER: Meanwhile, there is a kit car seller out of Sedona that claimed in 2011 or 2012 to make an E-VEEPSTER. The company appears to have gone out of business. The body of the E-VEEPSTER looks more like a South African Gobex or Badger (especially the windshield) than a VEEP, SCAMP or VEEPSTER.

Here’s an ad from July 10, 2012 that was part of a sustainable business article from the Portland Business Journal:

eVeepster_ad_web

You can see a very quick clip of a Veepster on Youtube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jft7UVToyvo

According to Youtube, Venus Motors, Electric Car Options and Go Electric came together to build the e-Veepster. A CJ3A Jeep fiberglass replica with a chassis designed with aftermarket VW suspension and the Venus EV Drive System. Kits are available, assembly is available, who says EV’s aren’t available. Many styles to choose from but in Sedona, AZ this is Red Rock 1

Gobex Leisure Buggies – South Africa

• CATEGORIES: VEEP (VW Jeep) & The Jago

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.”
