I recently acquired a Kellison Super T body, it took me a little while to figure out exactly what it was, there are no badges on it, and it does not say Kellison on the dash or the tailgate.
It came with a chassis and a complete doner Beetle, but the doner car is in such good condition, it would be a shame to use it, so I think I'll restore it, and find another doner for the buggy.
Here are a few pics.

Does anyone have the build instructions for this?

I posted link to the Berry Mini-T manual on thesamba. It won't be exactly the same, but the frame work should be very similar.

David, It looks like a Super T clone since there is no makings on it, and the rear fenders are different as well. I believe Allison Ken had one like yours a few years back. However, the build should be identical to the Super T and I do have a PDF copy of the build manual and would gladly share it with you. Just send me a Private Message with your email address and I'll send you a copy.

I was talking to a buddy of mine down on the coast (Mission BC) who has a fiberglass business, and we where thinking of making a mold of this and to start producing them, and would like to know if there would be any interest in them?
I know there is a guy in Kelowna BC who is making the Manx bodies, but is there anyone making a T bucket style body?

Well...I have inquired with 3 companies to see if anyone was interested in making a mold of this body, before I started drilling holes in it, and nobody seems to be interested, it's a shame really, so I guess I'll just go ahead and start the build.
I have another doner car coming next week, so once it gets here, I'll start a build thread, actually I found that one of my neighbors was a bit of a VW hoarder, so I bought EVERYTHING from him, so now I AM A VW HOARDER! (cue hysterical laughter) now I need to go listen to Lana Lane's "Frankenstein Unbound"

Looking forward to this project.
