Hello everyone. I have a special buggy I have never seen before and I'm 46.
If you know any way to I.d. Let me know.
The pink says it's a 1960 vw with a California I.d. Tag.
No vin found.
I have never seem a buggy with built in rear bucket seats.
Crazy, let me know if you have any ideas.
Thanks ~Tim

The Allison Daytona has molded seats in the fiberglass but is different from your body. I wonder if someone copied the  Daytona into a manx type clone creating a buggy with the traits you have there

Now that's very interesting. Whatever it is, build it and enjoy it!!

Oh, and post lots of pics and your build story here!

We have discussed this body before further down in the thread, I believe we have a name but I cannot find it in my notes. This body shares some similarities with another body (specifically the sidepods ) used with Fibermotive bodies . The thread preceding this one ''My new Tub of Love'' is a Fibermotive body and you can see the licence area of the hood is similar as well.

Thanks again. More pictures to come.
I found out today I have a Ed Roth Fiberglass buggy.
Its nice to run into old school elders that know just by looking at
something who built is without trying to Google it.

I love history.
