The Wombat Car Company is the maker of the Wombat Rebody Kit, a custom designed steel-framed fiberglass body kit that fits on a classic VW Beetle Chassis.
The kit is designed so that there is no fabrication, welding, or fiberglass work required for the assembler, only some fitting of the custom parts.
Numerous first time builders have completed their Wombats and Hummbugs (the precursor to the Wombat) in 3 to 4 months of 1 and 2 day weekend efforts without abandoning their families, jobs, or lawns. All for total completion costs of as low as $9400 on used chassis, to an average $12- $13,500 with all new parts.
Customers say that driving a Wombat /Hummbug is like being in a parade, and fueling requires 2 people- one to pump the gas, one to handle the questions.
