A fiberglass VW dune buggy body is available from the V-Dub Store in Saint Johns, Pennsylvania. Fiberglass panels designed to replace original panels without changing the look of the car can be purchased from Mark V Fiberglass in Boulder City, Nevada, or Creative Car Craft in Manchester, Tennessee.
Mass production of the Volkswagen Beetle did not begin until after World War II. In the 1950s many cars were stripped of body panels to make them lighter for endeavors such as beach racing. The VW Beetle chassis responds well to this modification, and the practice of replacing body parts with lighter fiberglass components is still popular.
