discover this incredible Cox motorhome!

In the 1970s, an American decided to merge a Beetle and a motorhome to create a vehicle that looks like the snail carrying his house on its back. This transformed vehicle has just been auctioned!

It was during an auction which took place a few days ago in Indianapolis that we were able to discover this rather unusual motorhome. Based on a 1969 Volkswagen Beetle, this car is no longer original. It was created from scratch by an American enthusiast in the 1970s.


It was precisely in 1977 that Lloyd G. Smith began building this large snail. After buying a “Beetle” for only $ 300, he cut it in half to install all the comforts of a motorhome. Inside, there is a gas stove, a multitude of storage spaces and 2 beds! In order to accept this greater weight, the engine, the suspensions as well as the rear tires were improved. Its creation caused a sensation at the time and a kit to reproduce this work even saw the light of day


Sold for less than $ 20,000

This very well maintained car has known the same owner for 52 years! A real time machine, bursting with charisma that has just been auctioned by Mecum Auctions. She found a new buyer who paid less than $ 20,000 to afford this little gem, or around € 16,200 at the current exchange rate..

Check out the video of this 1969 Beetle motorhome below:
