I have had my current Buggy for a couple of years and I wasn't sure of the body kit. Today I was the Chickasaw Festival in Tishomingo Ok and in the parade there where a couple of buggies identical to mine all the way down the the bullet turn signals any Chevelle tail lights. They were driven by Shriners. One of these guys told me that these bodies were made specifically for the Shriners in the early 60s. Does anyone have any info on the manufacturer? Additionally, I was wondering how many years they made them. Any information would be greatly appreciated. It isn't really pretty right now. Too many projects, but I do love it.  I will post pics tomorrow. Thanks

Jim, some photos of your buggy would help us to identify it. Full shot, hood, dash and tail shots would be great. I know a lot of Shriners used the Allison Daytona's in the south and here in Ohio they use Berry Mini T's. Welcome aboard!

I will get them on here today after church. What the guy yesterday told me that the mold for the buggies was destroyed several years back but that a guy in OKC got his hands on the roof mold.

I have several of these on file but no manufacture info. See if you can dig up more on your Shriner lead.

Really cool that I am finally getting some clues to this mystery. Been kind of a cold case.
