Western Mountaineering

A Western Mountaineering buggy resembles a tow'd with the exposed wheels and narrow front and lack of engine coverage. This buggy differed from a tow'd in that it was built to go on a pan. These buggies were built by Dave McClien out of San Jose, CA. These were built on either a 15" shortened pan or full length pan, the only difference was the length of the hood. Dave said there were a total of 4 buggies built: A yellow one (shortened), red - full length, gold - full length (Dave's buggy used for racing), and another built for Dave's friend - unknown color and unknown length.
