Glitterbug southern manufacture.

buggy buggy
Body Glitterbug buggy made in mobile Alabama at the "Old Shell Road" mobile Alabama factory.
Not a sportsman. Small green flake. Both tags present. Somewhat weathered/ dry gelcoat, but very few stress cracks. The tail has been cut for a stinger exhaust. The head light standoffs are of poor quality glasswork. Bubbles between flake/gelcoat has caused the passenger side standoff to completely fail and was primitively repaired. Otherwise a nice solid glitterbug waiting restoration. Windshield frame was present, but glass is beat.
Frame No frame. Project body waiting restoration.
Owner Dune buggy brothers.
Location Fernandina beach, fla.
Story Found this buggy body in Georgia just north of the Florida border around lake city. Just the body. Seems to have had lots of tire clearance rubbing issues in the past. Other than that it's a good solid buggy waiting restoration. Interesting Mobile Alabama manufacture tags.
