Here are fourteen pages at The Samba on the deep lore of the Jim Dandy roof rack. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/vi...c.php?t=102845

I like the ones with wooden slats that curve over the back window best.


Just A Car Guy: looks like the right sort of lake hopper to me... small, with a VW engine and a couple gas tanks. You actually don't need anything more from a plane when going fishing (room for bait, poles, snacks and beer of course)

It looks like the 50s or 60s, so 36hp?

my friend owns a Quickie with a VW engine, though I don't know the HP rating either...

I wish the front wheel was turned out, but I think I get it.

I ran wide-fives with Buick 8-inch rims in the 1970s. Those front wheels — I traded the set of four for a Dasher diesel 3-door a few years back. I'd had them for 40 years on various vehicles.



Bad camber in back, but I didn't know yet.

Just A Car Guy: this would be a cool combo RV hauler!

I thought you like front-engine swaps. I think the 1947 Plague is bogus, it's not listed in Wikipedia and the source is https://www.artstation.com/andrejt. This one is a little more obvoius:

I just share the pictures I get from local celebrity types.
Me, I like bugs that either handle well, or are riding truck tires with drab paint. If they have a panel truck, sedan delivery, or extended pickup body mod then all the better!
