For an off-road buggy that stands the test of time, the VW sand rail is about as good as it gets. These little buggies belong to a class of off-road vehicles that love the beach almost as much as you. They feature a body design similar to a go-kart, with a long, low frame resting on four wide tires. The low frame keeps these machines low to the ground, which reduces turbulence and vibration, and makes air flow over the top instead of battering these lightweight vehicles around. Slim rubber tires provide just enough traction to help sand rails pull through soft sand, but reduce excess weight. Since these vehicles do not operate on ice and snow, their tires do not require thick treads like those on cars. Many brands make sand rails, including Jeep and Subaru. The VW sand rail, however, stands out for its powerful engine, which has a special air cooling system, keeping the buggy from overheating. Although rugged, these sand rails eventually need repairs and maintenance, like your car. Fortunately, the large inventory on eBay helps you find sand rail parts of all kinds. You can make emergency repairs with sand rail kits, and search for other useful components, like tires and steering wheels.Shop the large inventory of motors, parts, accessories, and complete Volkswagen engines!
