Alright buggy buddies. I am ready for a buggy and I have set my heart on a Concept 1.
If anybody out there knows the whereabouts of these elusive little creatures, please let me know????
OR any information about the manufacturer...Sportsland Unlimited
thanks

There are a few of the Concept-1 bodies out there.  Good luck on your search.
Here is mine that was completed (as if buggies are ever really complete) during this summer.  It is Subaru EA-81 powered (the dual carb truck version) on a 71 chassis and transmission.  The cooling took a while to figure out but works very well.  I can idle during Texas heat traffic without boiling over and the temp staying under 200 degrees.

I got a concept 1,  how did you do the cooling?! I was thinking about that myself.  Pics?

Here are some pics.  I routed the hoses around on the passenger side just above the side pods to the radiator up front.  I used 1 1/4 hose and pipe with an overflow inside the filler pad. The radiator is from a VW rabbit and has an electric fan for additional cooling.
