This isn’t our normal segment to cover, however sand rails and dune buggies have been a large part of the off roading community for a long time. This Chenowth Explorer has all the makings of a vintage rig with modern upgrades!
I have always had a fascination with sand rails and have the pleasure of owning a Berrien framed sand rail. It was given to me as a present, and I was able to rebuild it from the ground up with lots of help when I was just out of highschool. Needless to say the obsession has only gotten worse.
This Explorer isn’t helping the addiction either. This Explorer is still sporting a heavily modified Type 4 VW engine, mated to a bus transaxle. That running gear is met with brand new parts scattered everywhere. It looks like the builder of this Chenowth got a hold of a JC Whitney or Pacific Customs catalog. With parts from groups like CNC, Scat, Crow Enterprizes, and Fox racing Shox, you can rest easy knowing that this is a no expense spared build.
Some other noticeable upgrades include electronic ignition, a remote oil cooler and filter, and extended suspension arms front and back.
I can’t promise that you will be able to work a deal lower than the already reduced price of $10,500, however I can promise you that you will be hard pressed to find a more fun off roader than this Chenowth Explorer. You would even be surprised how it does in the mud, take it from me!
