Chuck, First impression is that it is not, the dash is wrong for starters, also I don't believe the Rascal ever had the tire tub in the back seat. Ill see what matches up if I can

ok, thanks. i was thinking at first a kellison sandpiper sp-1, then i saw the rascal. there is no tag or any other I D on the body. the dash is thin fiberglass and molded with the hood, and the hood has a ridge.

Wow, a year and a half with no posts on the Rascal page. Surely there aren't so few of us out there.....

If Chuck is still looking in, I would tell him what I am sure he knows by now, which is that he doesnt have a Rascal. Whatever it is, I am sure he has it well on its way to restoration.

I just figured out what kind of buggy this is!  It's a shame there's no body here now.  Just in case I'll be posting pictures of the build,  the late model tail is now home to a 2.2 ecotec chevy motor.  I'm running a stock clutch so far. 0-60 in the mid 4s.

Just an update on the glassbuggy post about RTS. Their webpage is no longer functional.

Hi Rascallers !    I just found someone who may be able to Replicate the Sears Sticker and sent him a message, apparently Dune Buggy's were not the only thing they were put on ( wink)  So the ones he makes have an outer gold ring instead of the silver but otherwise it is the same blue prism sticker !  I will keep you posted - Bart
