Bandido

The Bandido is one of the coolest dune buggy model ever built in my opinion. It was built for a full legnth chassis with two chromed tube roll bars intergrated into the body desighn. The windshield frame is supported inside the roll bar tubing on the front dash. The roll bar is also large chrome tube. The side are ultra low for easy step in height. The Bandido used early 6V style VW healight buckets mounted cross eyed into the front nose. This buggy would have been the ultimate "Family Sander" in my opinion.

Baron

The Baron was built by the designers of the Bradley GT. They took a different approach to top design and made the only Manx style hardtop I know of that had gull wing doors. The kit was kind of plain beyond that and the tail looked like a Brute.

Bushmaster

Bushmaster out of Texas made several different models. The most known feature for them was the flat front hood that was often used to place stock VW headlight buckets into the nose. Some like our example here had a cut away area for the light to show through. It was really up to the owner. The tail section has a small raised box for the rear plate. The rear under seat area is flat with no wells. Sides were lower than a Manx and came in 3 cut lengths. The under fender supports are very unique and look to be the sturdiest I have ever seen. This example has yet to be cut for a gas tank even. The tail lights were cut for '62-67 lens but, I don't have documentation on if this was factory molded in or owner cut out.

Options included gull wing doors, a hard top, a pick-up bed and a road racer hood just to mention a few.
