As in #42, I'd envisioned a tube frame, depending on how much of the 2CV platform is available.

When a former supplier of CitroŽn Argentina bought the factory there, IIRC in '79, it still retained the stock design of the CitroŽn chassis for a while. Then it ended up switching to a tube frame, but the suspension was replaced by a more conventional one which resembled the front-end of a DKW and the rear of a Fiat 127.

Took these pictures in 2008

This Beetle had been fitted with a CNG kit, not visible in the pictures

Gotta love a stealth-camping van like that. Besides the roof-mounted swamp-coolers and front-hanging spare wheel, didn't gave me much clues that it was a campervan.



This one not so stealth at all, yet it's also cool. Notice the solar panel at the rear.

The Superbeetle is home, parked out front since the time I bought the XFi. Next step it to clear out the carport and get it in there.

Count the squares you can see in the reflection on that door.

History isn't what happened, it's a story about what happened. Here we have the 1960s filtered through the sensibilities of the 2020s:

*That 1950 Chevy with the grille full of 1953 teeth used to cruise around Springfield. OR.

I guess you also disliked the graphics on that cartoonish reinterpretation of a Kombi.
