Sirocco GT Coupe | Sat, 05 Jul 2008 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
Lou recently purchased the Sirocco GT that we previously featured here, one of the only examples of this car known to exist, and was kind enough to send in some new pictures of it. It’s on a VW chassis with a 1600cc engine and Lou says he’s probably going to keep it, but had briefly listed it for $5,000 (he’s in Spring Hill, Florida) so write him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested. It’s an interesting “dunebuggiation” of the GT40, with modifications including a flat (and oddly shaped) windshield and a lack of doors.

Another ultra-rare car — it really is amazing how many of these limited production kits still exist — Dan managed to find what he later discovered was a Sirocco GT Coupe. He posted pictures asking for help identifying it and got a variety of answers, until one day, reading the August 1970 issue of Road Test Dune Buggy he found an ad for it.
The kit, an admittedly “odd” interpretation of the GT 40, sold for $695 (although I’ve also seen it listed at $1,195), which came with the body with doors hung, seats, and interior, ready to fit on a standard length VW chassis. If you’re wondering about the oddly shaped windshield, all the glass was flat, so you could go to any autoglass shop to get it cut from a template.
