This body is also listed in the DBA X-Files Registry.  It is a long body with a diamond bump on the hood.  It has a low profile.  There is a photo of a dark green buggy body just like this one in the DBA photo gallery under "ID Traits", but I was unable to retrieve any information on it.

Here is the one Bart is referring to under ID traits:



Bart, what's that in the background the same color as the buggy? Is that side pods I see?

Yes, those are the side pods.  I was successful at posting more photos of the body and side pods in the X-Files Registry.  I have attempted to add the image locations of the photos (I use Picasa instead of Photobucket).  Hopefully, this will be of more help.  Thanks for your reply!

Hey guys,
99.9% sure this body is in the Fiber Jet catalog I have.
Now where the heck is the catalog.......

I'll be back.

This buggy was owned by one of the DBA website early members from So Cal that went by "DuneMan".

He bought the buggy from FiberJet and confirmed that it was a Rough Terrain.
They offered several combination of tubs and hoods. This was the popular hood for the Rough Terrain.
This is the low body option they sold much like a Dune Runner.
The front license reverse is also a standout on this hood style for the Rough Terrain.

The Rough Terrain body was probabally THE longest body produced. It first appeared around '68 and Fiberjet offered it all the way up until it's demise. that's around 35 years give or take !
