The worlds most incredible custom VW ever
There are people out there that restore cars, there are people out
there that customize them
and every now and then someone does something with a car that takes it
to a whole new level.
A mind expansion of what can be done to a car...and forever it will
leave it's mark on the scene.
This car did that when it first hit the scene in the 90's and after a
recent complete rebuild
it is ready to blow minds once again.
This is the Rodbuster.
Originally built as a challenge to the mega street rods running through
the show circuit,
to take a lowly VW and blow all those big belly grey beard hot rod guys
away...and it did it.
Awards were taken wherever it went and magazine features around the
globe shared the creation.
The level of detail and fabrication is truly beyond anything you will
probably ever see.
Stellar custom paint work with dimensional graphics that suck the
Graphics follow every painted surface...even underneath.
It is an amazing work of art
On the ground and off the rotating show car display
(which is included with the sale...as is a trailer to haul the whole
it looks at first glance like a Ghia with a wild paint job...and it is
but when you look deeper and underneath you see the amazing amount of
went into building it.
The air brush work is impressive...like some futuristic kick ass space
The interior gets even wilder...check out that dash!
Custom machined aluminum wheels
Body hugging bumpers and flush mounted headlights
Body hugging bumpers in back as well.
The 3 dimensional door panels are as wild as can be and blend in with
Custom touches and one off work in all the corners.
Check out the flat floor...and that shifter!
Custom seat adjusters
There is no other car on the earth like this one.
Insanity at it's best!
And the deeper you go...the wilder it gets.
The entire chassis has been machined from aluminum!
The engine too has been mostly machined and built with one-off custom
parts with jewel like detail quality.
Twin super chargers on the engine!
Check out that suspension!
And the oil sump!
It goes on and on through the entire underside!
Back inside there are further details like the controls for the windows
and door poppers.
Check out the detail... wow!
Paint quality is impressive.
Check out the blended in turn signal lens in the bumper!
Wild flame work
The engine room is like staring into a mechanical jewelry box!
Under the front hood the details continue
First aid kit and flare holders all machined one off in aluminum.
Even the hood latch is a work of art in it's own right!
Check this out!
Its even amazing underneath it!
Here is the mind twister photo for me...check out that chassis!!
Here is a cool shot of the dash before the steering column went
in..check out the pedal assembly!
Digital instruments in the dash.
This is really something from science fiction...a fantasy...yet it is
real and right here in front of you!
Even the horn is transformed into an art piece!
Behind the seats is a compartment that houses the batteries and a lot
of the car's management system.
Here is the pedal assembly and firewall panel out of the car...wow!
Controls for the fuel injection
Fuel tank is back here as well
Here are some shots of the body being mated to the chassis during the
restoration just 4 years ago.
With the body off you can see the suspension and engine in further
A transmission clean and pretty enough to sit in the jewelry case at
Inboard disc brakes at the back
There is a starter motor in there somewhere...and check out the amazing
suspension set up!
Detail under the fender wells
Front brake detail... it just defies description.
I have never seen a car built to this level regardless of make and
model...and I dont think I will ever see one that will top it.
Here is a classic shot of the car when it first hit the scene years ago!
And a photo of it current day.
It was wild when it was first done...and now it is even wilder!!
The amount of time and money that have been invested in this car is
While the price may seem "up there" it is a fraction of what was spent
to build it.
Even the display by itself eclipses most VW builds in price tag!
It is an absolute one of a kind and is certainly in the running for the
most incredible custom VW of all time!
