A couple of years ago I picked up a old buggy in Daytona Fla. from a friend of mine. It was a really cool deal. Wheels, dash, hood and body all for $300. I was told by him that the buggy came out of Jacksonville Fla. in the mid 60s mad was called gtg something or another. I have surched the interweb and this site countless times trying to find my answer with no luck.
The body itself looks like a normal Manx knockoff but the hood and the inside rear section are unique. The hood has two wide scallops in the hood and there is a really weird storage area next to the battery box that I have never seen befor.
I'm going crazy looking for this buggy and I hope you guys could help me. Thanknks in advance.

I believe I may have found it my self. After further searching, it looks like it is a mini folks ( Hawk). Please feel free to back me up on this or give me additional info.  It is widely  know that people move to Fla to retire and I think that this might be the case since the buggy was manufactured in Mass.

This is one of those models that is very close to others in my opinion. Can we get a shot of the dash on yours? Is the windshield square in the upper corners or curved?

The dash was cut out and the windshield was missing.. I can't find any other models that have the spare wheel well. I know that this model came with many different hood options. I still can't find any hoods that look like mine. This is what I'm going off of.
