El Lobo Registry
The El Lobo was manufactured by Woodford of La Crescenta, CA. According to "The Dune Buggy Phenomenon Book 2" (page 250) by James Hale, "it was available in small numbers to special order". It's design started as the Lido and later the influence can be seen in the Le Tigre and the FF buggy in England. A similar design is the Enos "500".
Unique to the El Lobo is the "front mud flap" that appears on the side of the lower side of the body just behind the front wheel.
