This buggy has a tail box that extends up over the rear lid of the buggy. It also appears to have a fender support just after the front tires. Some may refer to it as a Beetle Auto Haus, but it actually has 2 "t"s based on the ad.

Story My father gave it to me when I was too young to appreciate it. I sold it and then when I realised how important it was to my childhood I searched for it. 8 years after I sold it I ended up finding it in Oregon and bought it back. My father helped me restore it back to it's previous condition as someone had removed the Turbo engine. I will post pictures asap.
Clubs We use to belong to the "Fun Buggies" and we still have the plate that was to be used at functions and parades.
