This is my sand rail that has a fiberglass kit from an unknown origin. Can you guys help me out?

Nice buggy!

I think it is a late 60's/early 70's Funco. They are still in business.
Check here: http://www.funco-motorsports.com/let's_talk_history.htm

There is a picture of one similar to yours at the bottom of the page.

By the photos, the buggy could be a Funco Bandito or it could be a HiJumper Ascot or a Hobrecht Panzer. It has differences from each of the 3 brands which may have been modifications done by a PO.

There are 2 places on the car to check, both of which are visible in the photos, but not clear enough to tell.

- The front beam clamps are cast. Check for lettering cast in the front face.


- Inside the left fiberglass side panel is a label or card, maybe set in the resin. It's visible in the interior view. That may tell who made them.


Nice car though. I have a HiJumper.
