Ouch! That is(was) actually a Kyote II, that someone has butchered!

What a shame...

You mean they didn't come with the door option? I know in speaking to Albert of Allison, thet they would put doors in their buggys if the customer wanted. I see a finished panel that would meet up with the face of the door. I would think if it was just a hack job that there would be no finished panel, but fiberglass is easy enough to fwork for those who have the ability that about anything is possible as far as modification goes, so maybe thats what it is.

Now I'm curious if these ever had doors or had the option from the factory.

This one looks kind of like this Kyote that was for sale last year:

tho some of the panels are not in the Seattle photo. I'm pretty sure there was a Kyote model that had doors and removable hardtop sections, and a tailgate. The Seattle one looks to have the tailgate, and the front part of the hardtop.

If memory serves me, there was an article in one of the late 60's or early 70's dune buggy magazines on it.

Guys,

I bought that blue Kyote II. The following link will show you my progress (95% complete);

http://s756.photobucket.com/albums/xx207/blueplate84/DeanJeffriesKyoteIIDuneBuggy/

A) The Kyote II only came in one configuration (with doors and removable roofs).

B) It was one of the most-detailed kits ever made.

C) In total, at least 20 individual pieces make up this body.

D) Only designed/manufactured for use on a full-length VW Type I chassis.

No doubt about it, that Kyote II in Seattle was butchered...

... I just wonder how much that body will flop around in the breeze after being cut.
