The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

Today, this car is widely copied and has brought an onslaught of companies trying to make the perfect copy for a fraction of the cost.
The widebody Speedster offered here was built at D&D Specialty Cars in Van Buren, Arkansas for Billy Gibbons, of the band ZZ Top. 90 percent of the car was completed by D&D Specialty cars and then shipped to Jack Chisenhall, owner of Vintage Air in San Antonio and finished up. There were two cars built, the second one was meant for Frank Beard, drummer for ZZ Top. The project took longer than Beard wanted, leaving Billy Gibbons with Taco Wagons, Gibbons decided to sell one and keep one. These cars were intended to be used for running around town in.
Highlights include 15 inch half-moon steel wheels with BF Goodrich tires, Dual Webber carburetors, dual exhaust, roll bar, front disc brakes, JVC&DRVA speakers, real Porsche gauges, air conditioning, JVC equalizer and AMFM/Cassette. While there are many of these cars out there, this one certainly stands tall above many.
