CHENOWTH SCORPIAN - VINTAGE DESERT RACER - SAND RAIL - THE REAL DEAL -DUNE BUGGY

CHENOWTH SCORPIAN DESERT RACER - SAND RAIL - TITLED as 1991 DBUG

Almost ready to race in some Vintage Class races !

This Genuine Chenowth Sand Rail belonged to an old Tuscan Arizona desert racer that passed away. Its the real deal and best I can find, it was built back in the 80's early 90's maybe? It has a lot of cool technology, crazy paint work and Hi-end brands on it from that era. It does run, but from sitting so long, it will need at least a tuning, brakes and clutch adjustment right away (or clutch).

It obviously looks like it has been used for Racing only purposes back in the day, then had some lights etc added to make it street legal after its era was up.

The motor is a built VW motor, a 1800cc. In addition to 4 wheel disc set up on the brakes, there are also some Oneil pedals, cutting brakes, oil cooler, and much more. Check out the pics. Center steering up front was cutting edge years back and still works great.

Triple shocks out back, and front with long travel of course. If I put gas in the tank, after a few try's of the starter switch, the motor fires right up and sounds wicked. Trans feels good, clutch either needs adjustment
or replaced soon.

She has IronMan Ivan Stewart style suspension seats but they are old, faded & tired form the Arizona sun. COMES WITH a like new similar pair of perfect matching seats that go with it, to install it. The tube frame is wrapped in fiberglass & alloy panels, some held on by dzus fasteners. Check out the matching Ice Cooler too! I've had gas in the fuel cell, started it, idles fine and sounds good, sounds healthy. Drove it a few times, lots of torque and fast as hell. Needs brakes and the you have to push the clutch as far down as possible to be able to shift etc.

It took me a lot to finally get her titled. Comes with a clean Arizona title now.

Its not 100% road or race ready, but in a weekend with a few tweaks and repairs, I'd say its ready for the dunes or drive around town.
