 the 396 will fit in the bug .  It takes up some of the back seat , that's a good thing because teenagers and a carload of friends = trouble.   That will be a lot easier than shoehorning in one of them Allisons.

Kbeitz, back in the day my sister's high school boyfriend built a doon buggy out of one and had the rear E brakes hooked up individually so you could turn on a dime and leave some change, the cats at our place were never the same  :D.  I remember a few rides like that in your picture, you couldn't stop that thing for nothing. 
Sandsawmill, not sure of the year, I'll have to look on the Karman Ghia.

A Sun Roof Sedan was available on Early bugs like 59-63 . . then you need a full inside rollcage .  There are many styles of tow bars, comes in handy when you need to drop one vehicle off.

I have a few friends that claim to be VW air cooled  " experts " so ask away or send me a PM. One good thing is most parts should still be available , like WWII army jeeps still running today. The Marines also made some four wheel drive dune buggies with Porsche engines for Afghanistan and Iraq.  Lots of sandrails out west in California and Nevada .

The VW Air cooled bus was the longest production vehicle ever made. They just recently stopped production in Brazil .
