There is/was a Fun Products Stutz for sale on the Samba
The Stutz came in two versions - The Midi Stutz was the shortend body (shown below) and the Maxi Stutz a full length body - no examples yet
I had this in my x files and recently id'd it so I thought to post it here as well

Stutz huh? Interesting. I was seeing Auburn Boat Tail speedster from the rear when I saw it on the Samba.

Glad you got an ID Bart. That helps out.... Now I've got to get to work again, LOL.

Jay I took a quick look at the x file segment and have a couple of id's for you
x0038 is a Dolphin ''Mod T''
X0008 is a GTB  by Denk Plastics with a nice uncut tail
x0023 is a Joe Poty East body I had confirmed with the owner of it's firewall tag - don't have a name for the body  though (a side note Joe Poty East also had a Lido copy that they called the Caballero (spelling?) It will have a tag on the firewall (I have one in my files - indistinguishable from other Lidos - except the tag)
x0056 is another Trophy example
x0047 is a Bandit (Dune Buggy Inc - same mfg of the Fargo) Dune Buggy Inc sold bodies through Montgomary Ward catalogs like Terra Buggy did with Sears

Bart, thanks for the info. Now I've REALLY got a lot of work to do. LOL Interesting about the Dolphin Mod T...

I commented to Paul back when we created that one that I thought it was a Dolphin based on the dash, but with all the splash molds taken, no trait seems to be a definite trait of any company. Glad that one got ID'd.

Ok Bart. I got the FP Stutz up in the ID system now. I've still got to go through the rest of the X-files you've got listed here. Photobucket was giving me issues and I was spinning my wheels, so hopefully I will get a chance to do more over the weekend.

Hey Bart,
Do you have any ADs for the GB and the MOD T? I'd like to upload them if you have 'em

By glassbuggy Date 2010-05-01 20:11
yeah here they are - haven't found any of the other Fun models yet , the street machine should be easy to id if one ever shows up, the others seem to be copies of other bodies.
The ad with the stutz at top if from 70, the others are from 69
