just sold on auction, a volkswagen jolly-style buggy has been reborn to recall vintage summers of southern california. the original car was likely built in 1969 using a ‘sand rover’ body from poty enterprises and a 1958 volkswagen beetle chassis. acquired by its current owner in 2014, the tiny car was refurbished in jolly-style — a type defined by its bulbous profile, doorless sides, removable surrey top, and wicker seats. the salmon-pink color palette and stowable beach umbrella serve to emphasize the buggy’s playful attitude.
