This is what m Buggy is. This isn't mine but its the same type, anyway, I am gonna stretch to make a full length and am considering paint schemes such as 70' style panel jobs.... Mainly green or orange flake.

Anyone here able to do this, I am unable to do this, I wish I had a better side view, but its the only one I have seen. My digital takes such crappy pics its not worth using for this.
Anyway here it is.



Heres the add as well, its gotta a rear view as well.

Thanks in advance for anyone who accepts this challenge. Ps feel free to play around with it too, could be interesting as its a little different than the usualy buggies.

I "made" two soft tops for the '74 SuperPhaeton, one in black vinyl:

and the other in tan canvas:

Is there a clear winner? (The top-down version is in my sig graphic.)

Okay, here's a couple of sumpin's based on the fiberglass Gazelle body I don't have any other use for. I've always felt the rear end was the ugliest part of that kit - it had to extend SO far back to make room for the VW engine (though the kit can also be used with a front engine donor drivetrain).

The first exercise is a stakebed pickup . . . long nose for a pickup, eh?


And here's another - rear end drops off ala '32 Ford, and "aero" grill slopes forward at the bottom.


[EDIT: Both have rear fenders on, Swoodard, the camera angle just makes them hard to see.]

I think the gazelle idea could be pretty cool. Change the rims and fit the biggest tire you could and still use the rear fender.

Okay Jon, it's a little late but I just read this thread this evening and thought I'd throw something together for fun.

It's not exactly what you were askin' for...since I was just having some fun I thought it might be interesting to try a few things:

- The windshield has been laid, backgetting rid of the Ford model T look.

- The wheelbase is unchanged for that sporty appearance.

- The headlight indentations have been filled. Perhaps the headlights could be small units tucked deep under the front fender. This helps clean up the front end which makes it look more like a mid to late sixties 'Vette.

- Reacquaint the car with mother earth...get that puppy on the ground!

- Classic 5 spokes clean up the rolling stock - 15"s up front and 17"s in the rear plus a nice little rubber rake courtesy of a beefier rear tire.

- These things were designed in the sixties so why not play up that heritage..muscle car stripes down the hood!

- A chrome low profile roll bar would be a nice touch as well.

Just my 2...it's your car so you should only do what you really dig. Enjoy!

Glad ya like it. There is just so much that can be done with those old buggies and not just the Meyers Manx. Fiberglass buggies were everywhere in the late sixties and early seventies, now you rarely see them. Maybe it's their time to rise up....

Hey bigguy,

I hope you were plannin' on runnin' 20" Torq Thrusts as those wheelwells are goning to need every bit of diameter of rolling stock that you can fit into them!

Seriously though, what is the size of the stock wheels and tires?

It probably would be about the easiest vehicle to chop, ever.

originals were 16 with nondirectional military tires.and yes 20's.not for the bling just cause they need to be that size.it will of course be a different frame being it is double walled frame with almost 1/4 inch or more diamond plate floors in the cab.i almost had one about 4 years ago but the deal fell through.original motor was flat head inline 6 with a fording kit and top speed was 45mph.granny gear with the motor reved and you could walk around it 3 times before it move 20 ft.but again it would pull a stump out of the ground as long as it had traction.

The relationship to the trailer's wheels mislead me into thinking that they were at least 18"

I'm sure that you can drop a whole buncha curb weight by doing a frame swap. What is the wheelbase measurement?

I'm sure that it would make a totally unique ride. Think of it as Hummer grandpa.

I'm hitting the hay right now (up late working last night/this morning) but I'm intrigued by the possibilities so I'll give it a shot in the next couple of days.

Had a few moments this evening (putting off doing my real work) and I started isolating the truck from the backdrop, chopping the top, retouching out the straps and clean up a few rust spots. I stopped to look through my photo archives for some Torq Thrusters in the 20" diameter and at the correct perspective..still looking for those but I gotta get back to my non-fun work right now. I'll have some time later this week. I'll put the pic up as soon as I've got something.

Okay bigguy,

Better late than never

I scaled up the images of the Torq Thrusters to approximate a 20" diameter based off of the measurements of the 16" wheels in the photo. The top was chopped until it looked about right (inches?) and a quicky re-color was done but it would take major re-rendering to properly showcase a silver paintjob.

Hope this helps you make some decisions or plans. Enjoy.
