Dune Buggy Model: Touring T (aka 'T' Tub)
Manufacturer: KAR Manufacturing
City and State: Munson, MA
Thanks to David H. Irwin for the following information. The "KAR Touring T" was made to accommodate people (plural), the family or "the gang" Made with equal-level front and rear seating, this "touch of antique" offers real comfort. The Touring T is built on a 94" wheelbase. They manufactured this style and at least eight other fiberglass body styles. The Shorette brothers (Dick and Leroy) started their business in the early 60's and developed the first of a line of popular dune buggies, the Cheetah. The Touring T is also listed as a KAR-T-TUB in one of the ads.
