It is on a 65 shortened pan. I can't find any others with a flap over the fuel filler. It looks like it came that way. I can't find any markings . The back seat flips up and there are 2 deep storage areas. One for the battery and one for storage.  Any ideas would be appreciated. THANKS

Dave, On the left is a button for Buggy ID. at the bottom are alphabet letters. Click on "C" and have a look at the Clodhopper buggy. Then click on "M" and have a look at Martin FIberglass. It's one of those.

I can almost guarantee that the flap was an ad-on.

Jay...Thanks. It looks more like the Clodhopper because it does not have the indents for the front turn signals like the Martin. If the flap was an add on it was a stupid idea. It rattles and moves all the time. I'm thinking about putting some kind of latch on it. Thanks again. Dave

No problem Dave. Glad you got a positive ID. We find many previous owners had a tendency to modify the 'glass at some point.

Nice looking buggy. Keep us posted with the progress. :-)
