take a look at this one: X-0020

It looks the closest to me, but I am not anywhere near knowledgeable about buggies.

There are others that may be able to help better.

I looked at that one but the rear and dash does not look the same to me.  See Below Pic

Thank you I appreciate your help

Hi Lloyd.
I have X20 and still have no idea who made it. I can see differences in the rear as you mentioned.

Mark, I believe what you have is a "Clodhopper" made by Fiber Fab in California.  I have one identical to yours.  Mine was made in 1967 and built on a pan that is shortened 14 and 1/4".  The hood and Dash are one piece separate from the rest of the body.  Mine has the fuel filler in exactly the same place as yours.  The view of the dash is Identical as is the tail view.  The battery box and spare tire carrier are the same.  I bought my assembly manual from e-bay a number of years ago. I also found the emblem that goes on the hood on e-bay but be chummy with your banker. The emblem is rectangular shape with FF in the middle. It is a die cast reproduction that was also used on the Fiber Fab "Aztec" sports car.  Hope this helps.
