yellow buggy

Postby 1996_SWB » Tue Dec 02, 2014 6:55 pm

Hi all, I just purchased this buggy (just before buggy fest but couldn't make it unfortunately) with the intention of doing a full down to pan revamp and restoration and then rebuilding it as a genuine Manx. In the time that ive had it ive done some research on it but carnt find any info in the actual current fiberglass shell, from what the previous owner and paper work is saying it's been around a bit so I was hoping someone would know something about it, but the only other one I have seen is on youtube ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFdVFZqzyO4 ), so from the vid I assume that its a QLD made 4 seater swb shell. The buggy spent some time at BBA but the previous owner said that that they did not know. I wasent a big fan of the shape at first but it does grow on you, but I think ill still go manx, if there is any interest in the shell I may sell it but we'll see what happens. Any info and /or help identifying it would be greatly appreciated.

I like the shape, I agree though a original manx is hard to beat in the looks department, I'm sure one of the grown ups on here (read old guys)! will be able to identify it for you. That'll be a nice little project for you.
It will all be ok in the end.. if is not ok its not the end!

It's a Mk3 SupaSports. I actually quite like the shape of the Mk3

I could be wrong, but I think that's Jacko's old buggy. And it used to have a timber roof in the shape of two surfboards

Yeah, love the roof! In my opinion & tastes, the Mk 1 & Mk 3 have better lines than the Mk 2 supasports, there's just something about the looks of the Mk 2 rounded bonnet that I can't seem to fall for..... Keep us posted on your work, Pud :)
