I am having quite a bit of trouble ID'ing this Dune Buggy I had recently picked up.

From using the Buggy ID page I can tell you that it is a classic style, flat fenders, flat tail with a lid cutout to allow greater access to the engine. The hood has a wide raised ridge in the center that runs from the windshield and then slopes down all the way to the end of the nose.

It has a Corvair engine in it with what looks like Corvair talilights and the corvair badge of course. There is a vin plate on the dash to a...well Corvair. I have not found any other tags on the body and was hoping someone might be able to identify this Dune Buggy.

Here are some photos:

I will see if I can find something, you might also see if you can contact Glassbuggy on this site. He is on once in a while.  Very knowledgeable on buggies.   I hope you do realize that we have access to other pictures in your folder with the ones you Posted.

Here is one that looks like yours in the front, the pictures are not great.    BCBee

Hi Lloyd, I don't see the picture you are talking about.

Look in the Buggy ID section  Hit the letter B and it should be the eighth one down.  That is all the info we have here.  It does look like yours.  They generally do not travel a long ways from where they are manufactured.  So if you are within 600-800 miles, it is a good possibility it is a BCBee.    We have a Member on this site, Glassbuggy who is good at this.  He is also on the :  https://www.thesamba.com/vw/     Probably on there more than here.

Agree with Lloyd, it looks like a BCBee (Battle Creek, Mi.) An old buggy buddy of mine had one.

Looks just like my first buggy, a BCBee. Mine had an oval sticker under the right rear of the body. Evan
