Shortie Manufacturing

This body was made by Shortie Mfg. in Monson, Ma. I spoke with a fiberglass fabricator near there who knows the brothers who built it and remembers quite a few in the northeast. There were two business cards glassed into the underside of the body stating the name of the manufacturer. The rear is a box style and the dash is molded in Fiberglas as part of the hood. It has one well under the rear seat for the battery. It is pretty much 100% a clone of the Sand Rover body sold by Joe Poty East.

Spoiler by Desert Fox

Desert Fox Spoiler has a unique hood with a scoop that swoops forward to a point.

From Genom, "I keep on seeing threads on ID that speak of the Desert Fox and California Clipper (sometimes a Sandwinder II according to one article) where people claim the tail section is the same, which cannot be further from the truth. The California Clipper has a smooth transition from the rear fender into the nicely sculpted raised tail section, whereas the Desert Fox is very abrupt and not smooth in the least. Thank you from the former owner of a Sandwinder II/California Clipper."
