El Lobo

The El Lobo was manufactured by Woodford of La Crescenta, CA. According to "The Dune Buggy Phenomenon Book 2" (page 250) by James Hale, "it was available in small numbers to special order". It's design started as the Lido and later the influence can be seen in the Le Tigre and the FF buggy in England. A similar design is the Enos "500".

Unique to the El Lobo is the "front mud flap" that appears on the side of the lower side of the body just behind the front wheel.

EMPI Imp 1970

The EMPI Imp 1970 model differs from the 68/69 in a number of ways. A tachometer pod is molded into the dash. In place of the battery box, rear seats are now molded in and extend up a bit beyond the normal tail of the buggy. The front license plate area has EMPI molded into it and goes almost straight down instead of diving under the front beam.

Side pods, a hard top and engine cover where available for it.
