Hello,

My son and I picked up a 1967 Manx style buggy and have had a heck of a time trying to figure out what which one it is.  When we used the identifier it came back with 0 results... I probably did something wrong but if some of you folks could help me out that would be great!

Thanks!
David

Need a good picture of the front, and dash.  If dash is molded part of hood, look through the listings for that characteristic.   If Glass buggy gets on, he is pretty good with identification.  It

Here are some pictures of the dash and front.  The dash seems to be pretty hard plastic or fiberglass and appears to have a seam under the windshield.

Thanks for helping out!

Hi David. I immediately thought I've seen that rear before. The rear is like one of our Xfile cars: X-31, but the hood and dash are different.

Wow!  You're right....I just dug around a little and found some pics of the X-31 and the rear appears to be the same.  So it still eludes us but at least X-31 sounds pretty cool...  HA!

WOW!  Thank you Glassbuggy!  That is it for sure.  Can you tell me anything more about it?  Info seems a little sparse out there after a quick search... 

Much appreciated.

not much to tell, only reason we found out the manufacturer was that brochure that sold on Ebay awhile back. I can tell you that there is a clone of this body style that is linked to Alabama Glitterbug. same body as the Clipper but the dash is different (matches Alabama Glitterbug style)
